The need for speed meets the need for greed.
Ex-starfighter pilot Carl Ramsey, now captain of the Mobius, can't watch race pilots without scoffing that they've never faced hostile fire. When the ship's mechanic and warp-drive wizard can't take it anymore, they goad Carl into entering a racing contest to prove it. Carl packs his bags, and his ego, and enters the Silde Slims Cadet Racer Challenge. With 250,000 terras prize money, it would be the biggest score yet for the crew of the Mobius.
Of course, Carl's not satisfied just racing to win. He hatches a plot for an even bigger score, dragging in an eliminated racer, an old squadron mate, and an unwitting corporate accomplice. With so many moving parts and Carl's seat-of-the-pants planning, what could possibly go right?
Can the Mobius crew keep it together long enough to finally put together a big payday? Or will their plan, and Carl's ship, crash and burn?
