Description:

For centuries, the Imperium and the Empire have been at war, laying waste to the cosmos for gains that seldom last. You and your crew are part of a space salvage team, making the long journeys out to salvage sites where the remains can be picked through for something valuable. It’s not exactly legal, but neither is it illegal, and you live in that questionable fringe. For some, a single jump trip is enough… for others, it’s a life, their old one left behind by the passage of time.

This time, your captain has secured an impressive salvage, but other aggressive pirates arrived and you had no choice but to make a hasty retreat. Still, the stash is sure to include valuable military gear, supplies, and technology. You make your way into cryo sleep, eager to wake up to the comforts of home, and a fat cut of the credits. But it is not the ship’s AI that awakens you, but rather a warning klaxon. Still lost in the haze of cryo sleep, you quickly realize that something is terribly wrong… and if you don’t stop it soon, this ship will be the last thing you ever see.

This is a sci-fi/horror game which uses a home-brewed adaptation of the well-known Powered By the Apocalypse system.
