Stowaway: Nan Renard is the senior machinist on a cargo ship, and is the Ship Aentity’s best friend — and a stowaway. What happens when the ship is taken by pirates?
What You Don’t Know…: A survey ship 300 years into deep space, barely FTL. The Surveyor, the sole human occupant on the ship, spends the majority of her time in stasis. Occasionally she’ll be brought out of stasis to verify interesting things discovered by the ship’s autonomous systems — the ship’s autonomous systems that are slowly going crazy.
Inflection Point: Three new cadets are inbound to the academy, but their pod is sabotaged by terrorists and they end up in unexplored space. The scion is unconscious, the ‘mat brat is immobilized, and the waiver boy’s implants fail, leaving him blind. The blind, the maimed and the dying… and the local fauna is troublesome.
