A Space Opera

Space, the final frontier, or so we're told. The problem is things can never seem to be final in the vast never ending reaches of space. Efrem Gray has been a good soldier for nearly a decade and a routine mission to the planet Xioshaa to stop an ever growing civil war was nothing but another stop for him. Things go south when his team is ambushed and stranded in a jungle, left to argue amongst themselves about the best way to survive.

Despite the misadventure, Efrem makes it out alive, but he doesn't come back the same. Finding a place in this great big galaxy of ours is never easy. Unfortunately, Efrem has to start from scratch before he can find not just a place to call his own, but a new life beyond what he thought he knew.
