Overview

Two 25th Century rogues take on pirates and corruption in this adventurous space opera.

The 25th Century is kind of a rough place. Mankind has just come out of a war against the enigmatic Xrath aliens. Pirates and privateers are causing havoc on outlying planets. O'Donnell Industries, the powerful and of course corrupt mega-corporation, controls many of the Known Worlds. Only the elite United Worlds Marshals Office stands for law and order. Their operatives are highly trained, daring, committed...and wholly inadequate for the task at hand.

Fortunately, they have help. Not really good help. Sort of last-ditch, desperation, Is This the Best You Can Do? help: Darin Bannister and his partner, Skyler.

The hobbies of these two average, mediocre guys just happen to include adventuring, damsel saving, and freeing the Known Universe from cosmic tyranny. But hardly ever before 11 A.M., because they like to sleep in.

Now, you can read their personal memoirs and get the inside scoop on one of their first, best, adventures: Fighting pirates on a distant world, and getting beat up a lot in the process.

Dar and Skyler have been widely proclaimed the greatest heroes of the Interstellar Age. As this firsthand account shows, the Interstellar Age is probably in trouble.
