Mission Info

Status Current Mission
Description

The crew of the SS Albatross dock at the port of Eros Station, handing over their cargo of scientific supplies to an eager representative of the Protogen Corporation. This is the end of a series of good jobs for the crew and with the prospect of a big payday and bonuses, high spirits all around. Protgen even got them rooms at Eros Lux, one of the premier gaming and recreational hot spots on Eros Station.

But with the shock destruction of the ice haulier Canterbury, supposedly at the hands of the Martian Congressional Republic Navy according to the infamous broadcast of James Holden, the atmosphere of the station is tense. Will the long run cold war between Earth and Mars suddenly go hot? Or will cooler heads prevail?

Mission Summary

The private courier ship Albatross, a decommissioned UN Navy corvette. Its role in the grand scheme of things is getting Thing A to Place B without anyone asking to many questions. Is it illegal, we do not know. Because if the money is there, we do not care.

And in this case, a new Luna based start-up by the name of Protogen Corporation is paying very, very well to get a consignment of scientific equipment to Eros Station. Probably looking to make some new skin tech dermal cream. Because hey living in space is hell on the skin and if this $400 dollar tub of cream makes a Martians skin silky soft it's got be worth the price tag right? That's probably it.

The contract stipulates a grand payday for all, and a week of time booked into one of Eros's Premier Casino Hotels. One of the ones near the surface so the spin gravity is nice and strong. A simple job, a vacation, all on starry Space Vegas.

What could possibly go wrong?
