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.
