The war was over and there were no winners. Now humans and aliens must find a way to coexist together. This is the galaxy that Drake Rose and the crew of the freighter Trystero are stuck in. Together they traverse the Demilitarized Zone between Terran and Gra’al borders taking on any job they can find, big or small, legal or otherwise, human or alien. A chance encounter with a derelict alien ship thrusts them into the center of a deadly conspiracy. When the Terran government refuses to get involved, the crew has no choice but to fend for themselves. A fragile peace hangs in the balance, thrust into the hands of Drake and the crew. They never wanted to be heroes. The only way to stop the ascension of a vicious warlord bent on the destruction of humanity is for them to survive. It’s Firefly meets Star Trek in this coming of age space opera series.
