You know the story, right? Earth got used up. We found a new solar system and terraformed hundreds of new Earths. The Central planets formed the Alliance and asked everyone to play nice and unite under their rule. Didn't quite work out that way...

It's 2517, the Unification War ended 6 years ago (2511). The Alliance won, an armistice was signed, and the Independents (those who lost) they drifted out to the edges of the system, away from Alliance control. Out there on the Rim, folks can live their lives, struggle to make ends meet, or band together to survive. Some find a ship, gather a crew and find work to keep flying.

And some sort of steal one that others left lying around, they fix her up and somehow end up missing a brother as part of the trade. Now those misfit bunch of folks are following a trail of crumbs about the Verse to try and find out just what exactly they've wandered into...


Seven months ago (March 2517), the Verse seemed to be feeling somewhat kind. Two people who had lost almost everything found an abandoned Firefly on a desolate rocky moon. They buried some bodies, called in some back-up and managed to get her up and running.

Now, Fortune has flipped that coin and the echo of their luck is rippling through the lives of those who stole from her surface and all those who travel with them.

Step on up, and join the journey. Be part of the problem, seek the solution or sign up with the rivals.

"Fine-ly," noted the big, balded headed Shepherd.

Cooper's serious expression wavered into half-smile as he approached the Allied Postal Services sign. There'd been a queue, in which he, Jonas and Whit had malingered impatiently for their turn and now, here they were right at the counter getting their own turn…

After about ten minutes of quiet (the sound of normal conversation within the room inaudible once that outer door was closed) the peace of the waiting room was startled by a blood-curdling scream. It was soon followed by a howl of pain.

"Kan gui!" Daiyu cursed as she came running…

Honestly, Alden hadn't been sure that Alison and Daiyu would be there, y'know, all in one piece and everything. But when he sauntered down the brightly lit, vehicle-wide corridor ever closer towards the very white frontage of the med-center with its blocky signage and clear, wide perspex doors, they were…
