Prologue: "Union Station" Edit
It is the year 2203. Gail Pilgrim, the captain of Starship Quicksilver, arrives at Union Space Station to collect three passengers bound for Planet Adroa in the Alpha Centauri star system. The passengers are:
- Sabina White (a fusion scientist)
- Colonel Michael Kane (a retired soldier)
- and Yuri Yerzov (a priest).
Act One: "Proxima" Edit
During the voyage, Gail awakens to find that her ship has been hijacked. At first, an extra-terrestrial presence is suspected, but it is soon revealed that Yuri Yerzov is in fact a mentally-unstable fanatic. He has taken control of the ship, locked himself in the cockpit and is attempting to fly it directly into Proxima Centauri.
Gail enlists the help of the other two passengers to get inside the cockpit. Initially they attempt to use the cargo teleporter, but this does not go to plan and leads to The Colonel being severely injured.
After discovering some bombs hidden inside Yerzov's locker, Gail is able to blast open the cockpit doors. She has a brief confrontation with Yuri Yerzov before she is forced to shoot and kill him.
Act Two: "Innes Station" Edit
Seeking medical assistance for The Colonel, Starship Quicksilver heads to the nearest space station with a medical facility, which turns out to be Innes Station.
While there, Gail and Sabina uncover evidence that the station's administrator has been murdered by First Engineer Otto Nielson. His co-workers Yu Cheung and Tyrell Beck appear to be helping him to cover it up. Gail finds herself imprisoned along with Daniel Godfrey, the former science and medical officer of the station.
Act Three: "Meanwhile ..." Edit
Sabina, meanwhile, is able to commandeer a shuttle and escape to a mining base on the asteroid below. There, she enlists the help of two droids to build a laser weapon and gain access to a robotic power suit. When the crew of Innes Station come after her, she is able to neutralise them and then return to the station to rescue Gail and the others.
Following these events, Sabina decides to join Gail as the permanent co-pilot of Starship Quicksilver.
