Oh, a very nice change of pace from your usual Border Service stories. The characters are instantly likable, especially the protagonist and his first mate. I especially like the first-person perspective which I don't think you've used since your TOS Border Dogs stories. It works even better here, since our hero seems a bit of a maverick anyway even though it appears he has a few good and loyal people to help him out.
And clearly there is something very fishy already going on with their latest job but it seems the crew for now is blinded by the credit symbols in their eyes.
Very much looking forward to more.
