The year 2586, the inner Sol System is governed by the totalitarian bureaucracies of the Core Worlds. Meanwhile, the Outer Regions are ruled by inept and corrupt governments or ruthless warlords. Good people and bad people alike are choked on all sides. Only Space DOGS, Deliverers of Goods & Services, know what true freedom is in the Solo. Smuggling is common as it is the only way Outworlders can get the goods they need to survive. However, pirates, mercs, warlords and governments threaten their livelihood, even as governments, corporations and warlords use the independent DOGS as impartial couriers and even de facto ambassadors out of mistrust formed by years of conflict. Now, a secret society threatens the Sol System from within. One crew’s heroic journey of revenge and exploration; from the meticulous world of Pholus to the lawless station of Chiron’s Pit, the inner depths of the Core to the outer reaches of the Kuiper Belt, and the unforgiving bonds of slavery to the unending freedom of deep space.
