On a deep space prospecting trip, Andrei Kreutzmann finds a planet valuable enough to set him up for life. Buy a new ship. Maybe even win back his lost love.
Unfortunately, the imperial military recalls him to active duty. His old captain, now a marshal, orders him to scout a key strategic sector. Andrei can't refuse.
He flies straight into a trap.
"The Final Survey of Andrei Kreutzmann", a military space adventure short story about a battle between empires and a single human scout caught in the middle. From Stefon Mears, author of Stealing from Pirates and Fade to Gold.
