Vermin-JimStRuth2010

The crew of the survey ship Io are used to getting out of risky situations by the skin of their hides.

So, when Captain Gallagher lands the ship on a small, peaceful and quite beautiful moon on the expansive edge of known human-space, the crew think that they’re about to bring in their biggest and easiest pay cheque yet.

As the team begins to uncover the secrets of the collosal glowing crystals that cover the moon’s surface, crewman Parks begins to hunt out the ships rats before they infest this tranquil place… and something very dangerous begins its own investigation of the crew.
