Captain Starcrost is not having the carefree, adventurous life of a star pilot promised in all the space academy brochures. He’s broke, his star freighter is in dire need of repair, and there’s a bounty on his head. His desperation has led to a foolhardy quest to find a fabled treasure that brings good fortune to the wearer, the Emerald Enigma.
Every captain needs a trusty starship and a crack team of crew members by their side. Unfortunately, the bitter pill of reality has brought him Iris, a ship computer with passive aggressive resistance to his commands; Blix, a hulking, copper-scaled, lizard man with an aversion to battle; Nelvan, a time-traveling teen from the past, oblivious to this new future; and Jasette, a beautiful but deadly bounty hunter looking to take over the ship.
Enter a charismatic and clever nemesis named Hamilton Von Drone, whose dark past has already intertwined with our misfortunate captain and left a painful scar. To complicate matters, as every good nemesis must by their evil nature do, Hamilton is employing his vast wealth on the very same quest for the Emerald Enigma.
Glint Starcrost isn’t the universe’s most successful star traveller. If anything, he’s the unluckiest, with a bounty on his head and him being broke. He goes on a quest to find the Emerald Enigma, hoping that will solve all his problems. Along with an amazing, brilliant crew made up of some very disverse characters – including a itme traveller and a lizard man – he goes on a quest to find the treasure, but unfortunately he’s not the only one who wants the Emerald Enigma.
Action-packed, filled with mad and hilarious adventures and with an amazing crew, this is a must for all scifi fans. I loved it.
