Earth Orbit Station–Prime, the largest of the orbital stations and home to hundreds of thousands of Confederation corporate citizens, is the system’s gateway to Earth and a jewel in the Confederation’s crown. With its pristine parklands, electrifying nightlife, galaxy-class shopping, and inspiring entertainment, life aboard EOS-1 is luxurious and carefree.
As long as you live Upstation.
For Nix, a young pickpocket working the Downstation markets and corridors of EOS-1, life is hard. And for someone who’s Unregistered forced to live off of the dregs of Upstation society, a hard life is the only life. But snatching is what he’s good at, and it’s the only way he knows how to get by. But when things suddenly get all spun out, and he’s feeling the heat from the hard-driven agents of Earth Orbit Station Security, Nix is forced to face some harsh realities about what he believes and who he cares about before he’s sent on the short walk and long drop on the Downwell Express.
