No Legacy Between The Stars

Empty space can kill you as surely as what careens in waves or particles through its uncaring vacuum. There are two kinds of spacers - those who fear the void, and the dead. Rolee knows which one she is. First officer to a star trader with a love of exploration, she tries to protect her crew and her captain from themselves and each other.

But when that love becomes obsession, taking them from sketchy spice halls to ancient ruins on a world wracked by deadly storms, that becomes harder to do. Everyone has secrets, spacers maybe more than most. Part of a first mate’s job is to keep them or share them. Rolee has never had a hard time picking between the two, but when her captain’s love turns to a dark obsession she will have to choose.

Choose between her duty and her family, her promises and her secrets. Protecting everyone around her might not be possible in an environment so hostile it seems bent on killing them with every step they take. And there’s one thing she hasn’t thought of.

Rolee has to ask herself who’s going to protect her.

Because the dangers of the void are whatever’s there - including what human beings are capable of.


Enter the world of Star Traders as you’ve never seen it before - up close and personal.

This sci fi adventure is the first original fiction set in Trese Brothers Games’ Star Traders RPG. The hit game has inspired more than a million Captains to sail the stars. This story is only a small part of the immersive Star Traders universe. Explorers, Bounty Hunters, Merchants, and Pirates span the void, a million of them. They each have their stories, and this is one.

In one complete volume, here are the five classic novels from Douglas Adams’s beloved Hitchhiker series.

The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy (Nominated as one of America’s best-loved novels by PBS’s The Great American Read)
Seconds before the Earth is demolished for a galactic freeway, Arthur Dent is saved by Ford Prefect, a researcher for the revised Guide. Together they stick out their thumbs to the stars and begin a wild journey through time and space.

The Restaurant at the End of the Universe
The moment before annihilation at the hands of warmongers is a curious time to crave tea. It could only happen to the cosmically displaced Arthur Dent and his comrades as they hurtle across the galaxy in a desperate search for a place to eat.

Life, the Universe and Everything
The unhappy inhabitants of planet Krikkit are sick of looking at the night sky– so they plan to destroy it. The universe, that is. Now only five individuals can avert Armageddon: mild-mannered Arthur Dent and his stalwart crew.

So Long, and Thanks for All the Fish
Back on Earth, Arthur Dent is ready to believe that the past eight years were all just a figment of his stressed-out imagination. But a gift-wrapped fishbowl with a cryptic inscription thrusts him back to reality. So to speak.

Mostly Harmless
Just when Arthur Dent makes the terrible mistake of starting to enjoy life, all hell breaks loose. Can he save the Earth from total obliteration? Can he save the Guide from a hostile alien takeover? Can he save his daughter from herself?
