Calose had three days to stay out of trouble on Dysta Space Station, a small station that did minor ship repair and at a reasonable cost. It seemed a safe idea to keep under the eye of the surveillance cameras so hustlers and pick-pockets wouldn’t bother her, but no loitering was allowed, and cruising through stores without purchasing anything caught the attention of the security bots. Her thought was to sleep the days away with a good reader in a sleeping cubicle but the ones in safe locations were already occupied. While she moved around she spied a potential spot to sleep, and when the station moved into nightshift, she settled for a light nap. Her sleep was disturbed when a relic was dropped in her lap and for the next few days she spent trying to avoid relic Hunters, until she found who the relic belonged to.
Taking up right after the end of ‘Arnica,’ Lt. Commander Lady Alexandra Montran newly married to Major JG Zohra have a one year trip back to their neck of the galaxy with Lt. Megan Vanster along as Commander Montran’s aide. The women refused to spend the year long trip back in sleep pods when there was plenty of unexplored space their respective superiors would be interested in knowing about; or, that was their argument. This is the beginning of their voyage home…and home is an operative word…
In the sequel to ‘Merkers’ Outpost,’ Lady Alexandra and Lt. Vanster arrive on Arnica in the middle of a hostile take over. Their assignment was to find some of the hostiles from their side of the galaxy and find a way to neutralize them in accordance to the planets laws. Major Zohra finds herself landing in the middle of a lake at a monastery with a Sha’Kar to guide her to understanding the rules of a honorable warrior by Arnica’s standards. When their paths cross again, there will certainly be fireworks…not to mention a certain dance.
