Sera leads a simple life.
A little smuggling, some drinking contests, and captaining her star freighter, Sabrina. But when she picks up a mysterious shipping container on Coburn Station, things begin to go wrong. She finds herself at odds with The Mark, a dangerous pirate organization that wants her cargo.
Inside the container she not only finds a woman, but a secret thought lost millennia ago. The woman is Tanis Richards, and she knows the location of the Intrepid, a missing colony ship from humanity’s golden age.
Sera knows how to help Tanis and the Intrepid. But to do that, she will need to reveal a secret that will pull her back into a life from which she was exiled in shame and disgrace.
Tanis doesn’t trust Sera; and Sabrina’s rag-tag crew is nothing like what she’s used to, but she’s going to have to rely on them to avoid capture and get back to the Intrepid.

Tanis Richards has spent half her life on the Intrepid, guiding the great colony ship, and its two million passengers, across hundreds of light-years. She has risked life, limb and those dearest to her to get this far.
Now she’s within reach of her goal; the New Canaan System, and a normal, stable life. The kind she’s only dreamed about. The only remaining hurdle is to strike a deal with the Transcend Alliance and trade the Intrepid’s advanced technology for the star system.
If only things were so easy.
The Intrepid’s arrival has upset the delicate balance of power between the Transcend, the Orion Guard, and the Inner Stars. Everything Tanis has ever hoped for is at risk as she fights to build the colony of New Canaan amidst the looming specter of war.
