Opening NarrationEdit

"The third planet in the Tau Ceti system, Sea of the Morning Star. As with most newly settled planets, once generations passed, and its population increased, relations with its overseer, the Stellar Alliance, worsened. And a war of independence began. To complement their meager fleet, the government of the Sea of the Morning Star issued Letters of Marque. And legal space pirates were born. Over a hundred years have passed since the war's end, and this is a story of pirates sailing the seas of space."
