Crucible: Records of the Argos
Nickolas Hall, the young captain of a disguised intelligence ship, sets out on his first mission. He soon finds the mission is not as simple as he thought it would be. An enemy appears that threatens not only his ship and crew but all of the inhabitants of the planetary system he was sent to investigate. Cut off from his homeworld and with only a small crew and a quirky AI, he must improvise to save himself, his crew, and all the inhabitants of a threatened world.
