The crew of the Holiday needs to research a strange alien artifact they have discovered. A scholar on a remote and dangerous jungle planet can help them, so they travel there in hopes of learning the machine’s secrets. Unfortunately, a gang of mercenaries is hot on their trail.
Abundance 5 is a remote planet, ill-equipped to deal with dangers. Its population of former resort employees who re-enact the Wild West, the rebels who hate the Wild West, and a commune of cultists who worship a galactic hero, can’t deal with the numerous threats they face. Two teams of Lasers, professional troubleshooters and law enforcers, have been hired to protect them.
