Synopsis: Space opera, with humanity divided into the "Union" and "Alliance." Sandor Kreja was the sole owner, captain, and crew of a tramp freighter. Originally the ship had been called the Le Cygne but had been boarded by pirates long ago who had killed nearly all of the extended Kreja family. Three members had managed to remain hidden from the raid but over the years two had died leaving Sandor to single-hand things with what occasional crew he could find. The ship was now called Lucy, both to escape the attention of the pirates and to escape from debts with Kreja using the name “Stevens” for much the same reason. They pull into the outpost Viking to look for cargo and a new crew member. Sandor gets smitten by Allison Reilly who is from the Dubliner Again. The Dubliner is a fine ship and the Reilly clan is doing very well. Sandor is definitely not in the Reilly's class.
