Narration: The Mercenary starship Eclipse started life as a inter-planetary transport barge. It was a life predominantly dominated by long, slow trips between planets, and overall boredom.
Narration: When due to be retired, it was purchased by a man with a dream. His dream was to take a small, fast ship and use it to make a living.
Narration: The living he had in mind would require danger, speed, and overall a life dominated by excitement.
Narration: It is impossible to tell whether or not the ship prefers this over the boredom.
