Why is an Earth-sized planet rampaging around the galaxy, blowing things up?
Having rescued the stranded explorer, how do you extract the clues about his big score from the rest of his rantings & ramblings?
It’s like having a Treasure Map which makes no sense & needs a bath.
The trouble with raiding a Treasure Planet is that the planet doesn’t want you there, and is bringing it’s capacity to do something about it on-line.
The world kind of sucks, and even if you get out among the stars it’s still not that great.
Somewhere out there, however, is a better place; A world with a wise, kind, and above all generous ruler, offering a great place to live if you can make it there.
Rather than setting up a mining operation on that airless moon, why not just blow it up & collect the ore from the planetary surface?
All we need is someone to wander around and pick it all up.
A Planetary Romance in which one of the participants is an actual Planet.
