Product description

Product Description

UPDATED 2nd EDITION (with additional content)
Book 1 of The Captive Galaxy Series
Captain Tilman “Til” Wray originally joined the military in pursuit of the stars. But he found he’d served for far too long protecting the petty interests of others instead of exploring those stars that had called to him in his youth. The military serving Earth, and the greater corporate worlds and outposts of humanity, had become something of which he could no longer be a part. The greed and corruption was simply too much to handle any longer.

Now, Wray plies the transit lanes of interstellar space while leading a crew of castoffs he alone trusts. Aboard the beleaguered Bellerophon, breathing the stale tasting recycled air while light-years from the cradle of humanity, the Belle’ transports cargoes of questionable legality, hunts the rich shipping of rival corporations, battles rivals and raiders, and participates in risky industrial sabotage missions in an attempt to keep the privateer business afloat.

What really pays the bills, offers the most lucrative and consistent payouts, are the captured raw technologies once belonging to the ancient Minervan race; an advanced sentient race that disappeared approximately 50,000-years ago. Alien artifacts and research data is a valuable commodity everyone is hungry for. Hungry enough to kill

Captain Wray, the Belle’, and her crew, have a long and difficult road ahead when a routine hop doesn't exactly go as planned. What happens next will forever alter the course of humanity. But that is just the way things always seem to go, right?

The Bellerophon: Ambush is the first book in the new Captive Galaxy Series. You can read more about the series, spin-offs, associated novellas, and other upcoming fiction projects at:
