Captain Shaw Sullivan made room for several new crewmembers aboard the Gilly. Though suspicious of Earth's motives, Shaw continues his pre-assigned route for census studies. The honest work keeps them moving ahead of the bounty hunters looking to collect while he figures out his next move.
With tensions aboard the Gilly straining crew tempers, Shaw decides its time for a break. They aren't on the planet five minutes before Tika finds them another stray--this one a bio-engineer with a huge price on his head.
Just what they needed...
Warning: This is not a romance. It's a wild, space romp with some rough and tumble characters who aren't all that likable most days.
