Fortunes of the Star Sloth
Download Full Text
Sebastian Rogers is the owner of the civilian vessel, Star Sloth. A loner, possible alcoholic, and someone with serious relationship issues.
Not the person you would normally pick as an explorer or for first contact situations. His A.I. doesn't seem to work quite right either, but then he did program it while he was drunk. When an accident dumps the Sloth beyond human explored space, he discovers they also have a stowaway. A stowaway with an attitude and who travels with a nuclear weapon.
To survive and make it home, they'll have to overcome Sebastian's tendency for sarcasm and learn to deal with a universe that up until now didn’t know humans existed…and still probably doesn’t care…
