On The Raggedy Edge We stand ready to fall, hoping to fly another day. They say they there was once a man who stood on the edge of space and looked outwards. What he saw and what happened to him? Accounts differ, some say he saw god and could not return to the sins of man so he died out there. Some say he saw nothing and so much nothing warped his mind and he became... one of them. Still others claim he just saw more space and there are better questions to ask than what he saw. I believe he saw his reflection, what was inside him and what he stood for. And the sight of all that made him question things. Sure soon enough he was doing what he always did but after that, he knew why he was doing it, and he was a happier man. This is not a story about that man, or about what he found, we start on the Alderan an alliance cruiser skirting the edge of civilization. For her and many of her crew its the first time on the rim. "This is Alliance cruiser Alderan to medium transport vessel you are ordered to surrender control and prepare for docking. Failure to comply will result in the use of force." There was a flag out on a ship like this, contraband.. endemic this far out but they had to do what they could to curb this blight. Lt. Dunsan was unremarkable among the others in the docking day, waiting to board and search the ship. He was however under orders to extort the ship's captain to a holding cell. They could not bind her under law without proof but they could make things uncomfortable for her.
