from the Introduction:
…this fully detailed scenario is based upon the “Mercenary Ticket” capsule adventure written by the same author for the Starfall Cluster Book, a Traveller d20 campaign
A copy of the original “Mercenary Ticket” is reproduced as an Appendix, as are several other items of background colour taken from same publication that can be used as player handouts.
This game is designed to played as a convention scenario in a limited amount of time. Thus there are
certain events that will happen at certain times.
The game is also designed to emulate an action movie, so the plot is relatively linear.
from the Plot Summary:
