Calling all Wing Commander, Star Citizen, and space adventure fans!
I’ve had the privilege of writing a tie-in novelette for the Star Citizen universe. Dateline: Sesen is currently being serialized–with a new episode released weekly–in the Spectrum Dispatch.

A pack of six Cutlasses barreled out of the jump point. One craft smacked into the front of the transport and skidded along its side, leaving a long, dark scar in the orange hide.
Yadav tapped the camera drone and it sprang to life, automatically locking onto her eye movement. It mirrored her gaze, recording whatever she looked at. The recorder in her ear worked continuously, never missing a moment.
Haddix pulled a scrap of something from his pocket and kissed it. Yadav had seen him do that on a number of occasions, but had never asked about it. Just his ritual, she thought, tightening her harness. Some people need their little security blankets.
But not her. This was what she lived for. She welcomed the rush of adrenaline, the fresh sweat on her brow, her increased pulse rate — it all meant she was where she needed to be, in the thick of a story-worthy conflict. There was something about exposing a criminal’s dirty laundry, about revealing a secret and letting the public judge who was right and who was wrong, that filled her with elation.
Even if you’re just an action-adventure sci-fi fan, take a look! Though the story is set in a specific universe with specific jargon, I tried to make it accessible to the casual reader. You never know, you might fall in love with the Star Citizen stories–and there are lots to choose from, such as the story that appeared before mine: A Separate Law, by Griffin Barber.
