A “friend” of Clan Whitecrest has gone missing in the heart of Kwmbwrw space, and the Clan suspects foul play. Unable to act directly, they send more of their “friends” to investigate, including newly-hired JETS veteran Ian Wilde.
For Ian, the mission was already a daunting dive into a new life, but the new crew he’s flying with are very different to his former squad. From a chain-smoking Rrrrtk captain and a curiously standoffish Gaoian chef, to a proudly gay Robalin outcast and a polyreligious Mjrnhrm thief who may or may not be completely insane, he’s certainly landed an unusual cohort of new friends.
And he’d better learn how to rely on them quick.
