A 'Respectable' short story. A light action/adventure, nothing Earth-shattering, but still fun.

Enjoyed the story, very entertaining quick read

This is a good short story, coming in around 20 pages. If you think about it, it has about as much of a plot background as a lot of genre novels in this vein. It just leaves out the details and embellishing incidents, kind of like a good synopsis for a novel.

Short but enough to give you a taste. Had the flavor of Firefly/Serenity

Its ok. A little short. The story was a bit hard to follow and the characters could have been developed more to make a more interesting read. Interesting ideas, though.

As a free story it was worth reading but I found too many gaps in the plot to be considered a great story.
