They say that in space no one can hear you scream, but the question is: Can they see you coming?
The Alpha Ship One crew are famous for two things: making Earth heaps of money and doing it under the cover of deep space. The mercenary ship is commissioned to run missions on dangerous planets, to reap great rewards from unsuspecting alien races and to take minerals, precious metals, and invaluable resources for Earth's galactic expansion.
They do the work that no other ship in Earth's fleet would dare consider. Why? Because if they get found out, then Earth abandons them; leaves them to rot in the middle of the universe, unaided and unheard of until the very end of time itself.
For Captain Flynn, he never imagined that day would come. He and his crew were more than happy with the way things were going. That's until one day they wake up from stasis not knowing how they got there. One minute they're back on Earth, relaxing after another hair-raising, highly-illegal mission, and the next, they're waking up from a six-year slumber, in the middle of a galaxy they don't recognize.
But not all is as it seems. They are not alone. Aliens are aboard their ship. And unfortunately for Captain Flynn and his rag-tag group, they don't come in peace. Earth has sold them down the river; banished them from the blue planet with no return ticket home. Now the aliens have them. And they plan on using them against their enemies.
They take them prisoner on their home planet. Shackled and bound, the crew fear that their fates are sealed. But unfortunately, it is just the beginning for them. The aliens that hold them captive have far greater plans for them than death. Plans that will undoubtedly shake Earth to its molten core.
Prepare yourself for a journey that leaps from star system to star system, in a space opera filled to the brim with nail-biting suspense throughout.

More of a psychological thriller than a sci fi
- Mary Karowski
A fun space cowboy/pirate/revenge story
The science in it was fun to me, especially how fast the ship was able to go. I just found it enjoyable, like an evening comedy after a long day at work
Gilboe's narration helped with the pacing and the overall enjoyableness of this
