In the Cauldron smallIn the Cauldron

I like to live. I’m funny that way.

Dropping out of hyperspace into a pulsar system with no engines, a dead bridge crew and captain, and limited power doesn’t bode well for survival. When one of the other passengers, a typical businessman accustomed to immediate obedience, makes a power play with all our lives at stake, of course I pipe up.

Because I don’t agree. The ship is drifting fast towards a fatal encounter with a pulsar jet, and a small life-pod isn’t going to protect anyone from the ambient radiation of the system. Somehow I’ve got to convince the people that matter to stay with the ship and get the engines running.

Before it’s too late for any of us.
