A professional gunner helps protect the Jump Point of a star system beset by pirates, in a gunboat falling apart at the seams! Outgoing ships are being preyed upon, but not everything about this job is how it first appears -- least of all the crew! More
A remote corner of a bleak system... A broken-down gunboat, stuck in space... An incompetent captain and a misfit crew... A pirate ship, a silent target, and a whole bunch of secrets... So how's YOUR day going?
There have to be easier ways to make a living -- easier than dying slowly in an obsolete boat, as its power drains out and life support fails. Forget the job; forget the pirate problem: there's only time for a desperate jury-rig and maybe a little hand-wringing!
And anyway...what are the odds of running into trouble way out there?
