Rick Cave is the captain of the HotTicket, a medium tonnage freighter spacecraft. To feed the fuel tank and kill time in the outlaw New Slav sectors of space, he takes shady jobs often with no questions asked. When an old war buddy shows up with a gorgeous companion, looking for a fast ride to the outer rim, he of course listens to their money. Rick soon learns he should have asked who they were running from. "The Positronic Pretty" promises danger, action, and a touch of romance in the classic spirit of the old pulps.
When the Nazis orchestrated an accident at one of the final races in the NAStar circuit, Finster earned himself a new name: Burn Job. Now, he's back and on the trail for revenge. First stop?

A little, cash, access rights to the higher profile NAStar circuit, and Finster's woman, the gorgeous Sweetie Sally who was taken captive by the evil Fuhrer Brett. "Burn Job and the Artificial Honey" kicks off a series of adventures around the space lanes unlike any other!
