She’s brave, crazy, dangerous… and your best shot of crossing the galaxy alive. Captain Shaen Morris may be certifiably insane. Her ship the Belle Starr may look like a rusty, lobster-shaped piece of junk. But for the right price, they’ll get you off-world, using the interdimensional portal known as “the Passage.”
Episode 1: Whiskey on the Rocks
When a robot shows up with some unusual cargo, Shaen questions its motivations. When it refuses to power down during transit, she questions whether the fare is worth it. Something lurking in limbo endangers them all, and it takes some fancy flying to get everyone out alive.
If you enjoy space westerns like Firefly, Star Trek and John Carter of Mars, you’ll like Belle Starr.
Episode 2: The Skull Game
An encounter with an android and an orphan has left Shaen unsettled. She’s the best coyote pilot in the galaxy, but the future for all coyote pilots is madness and death, or worse, a permanent return to the hellish Asylum Ships. Unwilling to let the Belle Starr become space debris if she’s incapacitated, Shaen agrees to something she’s never attempted: taking on an apprentice.
But old rivals Vahnu and Vishku have a different plan to make their fortune and avoid their fate. A plan that includes stealing the very thing she’s struggling to save: Shaen’s fractured mind.
Episode 3: Belly of the Beast
For once, things are going well for space smuggler Shaen Morris and her sentient ship the Belle Starr. Which should have been her first clue that something was about to go very wrong. When an anomaly in the Passage causes all transportation in the galaxy to grind to a sudden halt, she is forced to help out an old adversary – and put an old friend in grave danger.
Shaen could uncover the secret to what created the Passage, and why it drives humans insane. But what will this ancient knowledge cost?
