From the publisher's website:
"Unexplored star systems always promise untold wealth. But the system the crew of one far trader is currently exploring has shown the other side of the balance sheet. There is nothing of value here."
"Until they detect the Other . . ."
"Flare Star is an adventure for GURPS Traveller 2/e where a derelict alien vessel leads the crew of a far trader to a planet filled with danger . . . and opportunity. Flare Star originally appeared in four consecutive issues of Space Gamer magazine. It has also appeared in the Journal of the Traveller Aid Society online. But best of all . . . it's free!"
