Edited by Sandy King
Pushing forward into a new frontier is always dangerous, but when you're almost 1500 light years from home and something goes wrong its all to easy for everything to spiral out of control unless tough, often impossible, decisions are made.
Connected via a a series of Gates that allow navigation through an endless void of vacuum, Space Station Benson sits in the Veil Nebula supporting a series of mining asteroids that collect the ore needed for the next outward expansion.
A team nearing the end of their mission on one of these asteroids has gone suddenly silent after triggering a distress beacon.
The station's commander deploys a rescue mission lead by Jake Dixon - a man with a reputation as a hero or perhaps a murderer after a previous rescue mission lost a ship, but saved the station.
