My ship, my rules.
AVYN – Having been part of the losing side of the civil war on my home planet, I made my home among the stars in my ship, the Tygro. My crew is my family and although we’re branded outlaws and criminals by the Interplanetary Coalition – the IC – we’re just trying to make a living as best as we can.
CASSIE – Once upon a time, I was on track to become one of the youngest commanders in the IC fleet. I’d worked hard to climb the ladder to get to where I was. But thanks to politics and the old boy’s network, my career and the life I’d been constructing came crashing down around me. Stuck out on a desolate outpost as punishment for the sins of another, I was left for dead by the crew I worked with – by the IC themselves.
