The stories of Scattered Stars take place on the fringes of the galaxy. Humanity has spread far out from its place of origin, but limits to faster-than-light travel means that most people will never set foot on the core worlds, and vice versa.
As humanity spreads out from these core worlds, technology levels start to drop. Low-level technology in the Core is sometimes 100 years more advanced than the Rim and beyond. Which means any technology that makes it to the Rim is significantly more technologically advanced – if much fewer in number. Those few pieces of technology threaten to upset the region’s balance – for good or for ill – depending on who holds it.
There are forces in this universe who seek to control the wilder and more unpredictable worlds by sometimes brutal means. But there are heroes who oppose them, and those who do their best to bring justice and assistance to those with no one else to help them.
This is the universe of Scattered Stars. Follow their stories.
Kira Demirci is the protagonist of Scattered Stars: Conviction. A former Nova Fighter Commander from the system of Apollo, Kira and her pilots were forced to flee at the end of the war by elements who saw them as a threat. She smuggled out a handful of starfighters, and she and her people made their way to the Rim. Once there, she and her comrades built Memorial Squadron, and become mercenaries for hire – but ones with discerning taste in clients.
But you can’t fully outrun your past, and the same people who ran them out of their home are now trying to exert their influence over the systems of the Rim. Kira and her people must expand Memorial Squadron not only for their own survival, but for the protection of those the shadowy Equilibrium Institute seeks to control and exploit.
Evridiki “EB” Bardacki was one of the Nova pilots who fled Apollo to escape bounty hunters along with Kira. Unlike his comrades, EB took a buyout and left Memorial Squadron, preferring to leave the life of a soldier behind. Scattered Stars: Evasion sees EB as the captain of a ragtag crew of the freelance starfreighter, Evasion. Despite wanting to shed his past, EB is still a noble man with a found family to protect who can’t turn a blind eye to those in need.
