The Story So Far

“Just scout the sector and come back,” they said. “It’ll be a milk run”, they said.

One destroyed Raven, one dead pilot, and one mild concussion later, Sergeant Norman Bennett awakens on the roof of the Braddock Arms Hotel in less than friendly territory. Suddenly, life as a Stranded doesn’t seem so bad by comparison. At least they’ll likely survive the next 24 hours.

So with no ammo, no ride home, and not a lot of patience left for the way this whole day is going, Bennett and company find themselves in yet another miserable predicament.

Somehow it’s never a milk run when Whiskey Squad’s involved.
