Thanks to the full resources, brightest minds, and cutting-edge materials and technology provided by Research One, Captain Frank Walker creates a one-of-a-kind ship, Exploration Research Ship (ERS) Cassiopeia. All of the research phases, test runs, trials, and upgrades are moving along as planned until the Cassiopeia's exceptional AI detects an emergency situation at a highly classified outpost.

A long way from the center of the known cosmos lies an empty sector of space, now the home of an artificial sphere caused by a disastrous black hole project. Surrounding this manmade moon is an ever-changing, ever-moving swirling cloud of discarded projects known as the Junk Yard, guarded by a sentient artificial intelligence (AI) known as the 'Dog'. On the edge of the debris field, corporations, governments, military, and private research facilities are constantly competing to push the boundaries of science.

Deep within the Junk Yard is a unique research station called Research One – the only true connection to the Dog, and the station is the governing authority of the Junk Yard.

Thanks to the full resources, brightest minds, and cutting-edge materials and technology provided by Research One, Captain Frank Walker creates a one-of-a-kind ship, Exploration & Research Ship (ERS) Cassiopeia.

All of the research phases, test runs, trials, and upgrades are moving along as planned until the Cassiopeia's exceptional AI detects an emergency situation at a highly classified military outpost.

Cassiopeia and her crew are ordered by the Dog to respond and assist, but helping the military always comes with a price.

Join us for a wild ride through space, and read how ERS Cassiopeia goes from a prototype concept to a ship like no other.

ERS Cassiopeia is a glorious silver enigma, and the military wants nothing better than to capture her and keep her from going rogue, or even worse, being captured by their enemies and used to transport enemy weapons and troops.

The Cassiopeia is docked at Research One, and Cassie has been quiet, mostly, watching, helping, suggesting as needed. But she's bored. A beauty like her should be out strutting her stuff! Showing what she can do!

When the call comes in for a political escort mission, while disappointed about the hum drum routine of it all, Cassie gets excited! Where will we go? What will we do? It’s something other than test flights, and there will be someone other than her crew to talk to.

An intelligence operative named Plackard is assigned to play advisor to a diplomat in order to learn all he can about the Cassiopeia, with plans to take over her computer systems when the opportunity arises.

The tension at the diplomatic conference on Station 967M complicates their plans, however, and one of the delegates has another agenda that will change the path of Plackard's career forever.

Cassie is the ship’s exceptional artificial intelligence, and her abilities during the drama that unfolds are more than anyone could imagine possible.

But soon after their arrival, the settlers discover that it was a computer database malfunction that led them to Martis, and they have lost all contact with home. Their leaders also learn more about the secrets on Martis than they are willing to share with their people. Now, several generations later, their peaceful existence is suddenly broken by an invasion … a race called the Plaxzones, determined to find Martis' secrets and use them for their own gains.
