The crew of the “Dauntless”, a band of freelance traders and mercenaries, decides to make some quick cash and finds themselves in trouble above their pay grade. With some dodgy cargo on the spaceship and their destination in the farthest reaches of the Solar System, they have little to no doubt this is not going to be a straight-forward job…
“Stars In Our Sails” is a science-fiction thriller set in a colonised Solar System – a story about people dealing with their lives and issues while unwittingly tangled in a conspiracy threatening to destroy them. The crew must cope with the vastness of space, isolation and constant pressure, forced into a game the rules of which they don’t understand. Only their resolve and cooperation stand between the crew of the “Dauntless” and certain death – but can they really trust each other?
