No SOS missed on the port's lines
No mutiny when the navigation is awry
Strange lands brought luck and not misery
I am shifting the fabric of existence to love you.

"Is this about your contact and our other possible addition?"
"Yes." She nodded. "And it's bad."
"My contact got killed trying to get this information for me." She shook her head rubbing her forehead. "We were looking at Archangel. He's a do-gooder on the asteroid. Pisses a lot of people off, but he is currently fighting for his life."
"You have the dossier?"
She handed me a tablet.
