Far in the future, the merchant ships of the Space Trading Commission fleet travel the space lanes—
each on journeys of trade and exploration. As the Phoenix “falls through a crack in the sky” after completing one of its many n-space jumps, First Officer Jana Maines makes an astounding discovery.
Jana detects a derelict—a ghost ship from the forgotten past. Believing this to be an opportunity to advance her career and financially help her parents, Jana attempts to convince her captain that they
should investigate, but he insists that they remain on course. Just as they are about to depart, however, a signal is received from the ship—and Jana’s adventures begin!
A routine resupply run to a lonely desert world becomes complicated when more than one man expresses greater interest in her than her ship’s cargo. While on a mission from an ocean world, she desperately tries to find a way to save millions of fish eggs critical to the survival of an entire planet.
Her encounters include an astonishingly ancient woman, a wealthy mystic, and a string of crusty, opinionated captains.
In a series of science fiction stories that span the far reaches of the universe, a courageous captain-in-training faces challenges that test her abilities to the limit as she strives to complete her missions.
