This book contains a background history of the IISS 1000 ton Scout Cruiser design and an adventure for Traveller based around the Scout Cruiser plus sufficient specific background to allow it to be used without reference to any other setting or adventure book. The adventure is presented in the standard ‘EPIC’ format developed by Marc Miller, creator of the Traveller game. It can be played straight out of the book or adapted to fit into an ongoing campaign.
It is possible to think of this adventure as being similar to the key episodes in a season of a TV series. Unrelated episodes can be slipped in between the key ones, but eventually the story will reach the series finale. Of course, there may well be another series, and so other adventures may follow this one.
