Mission Summary

In the wilds of the Unknown Regions near the Eastern Galactic Desert, the political climate had shifted unfavorably for the crew of the Motherlode. As Tibanna gas sees a glut during newfound regional peace, the crew faces uncertainty and must look to new shores. Life has always been shoestring and precarious, but now the crew contends with the possibility of true hardship.

Yet an unimaginable terror lurks nearby, an old evil that abhors all life. In its madness, it knows only to consume and destroy, without agenda.

Days ago and thousands of light years away, two Republic freighters came face to face in a powerful ion storm. Protected by the lee of an asteroid, the crew of Sweet Ravenna boards the derelict Alexia Meru. Their fate is sealed. Now a similar ion storm brews around Numbi Station as the Motherlode charges in, both ignorant and eager for profit.
