Eta Draconis – A Cause for Celebration

In the Star & Garter bar on Fisk Port, the atmosphere was one of celebration in light of the latest local news bulletins. Gold Vision Co, with the help of the 8th Dragon Squadron, had successfully won their long campaign to bring Eta Draconis under the charter of the Alliance of Independent systems. After fifty two days of campaigning and a relatively short civil war with the controlling party, the Union of Eta Draconis Labour, Gold Vision secured control of the major system starport, Swift Terminal. At the bar, the head bartender was having great difficulty keeping drinks supplied to the rowdy, thirsty commanders, thrilled at their victory...

Eta Draconis – Sobriety, On the Rocks

The Hazy Jane II safely docked, I decided to stroll over to the Star & Garter on Fisk Port. This time of the day, the establishment is usually quiet, and I needed the peace. The pink and blue neon sign over the door cast its familiar aura into the cool corridors of Fisk, and the 20th Century jazz that emanated from the place told me that the head bartender, Dom, was on duty.

As I hopped up onto a stool at the bar he nodded at me, and walked over to take my order.

“Hey Furieux! The usual, commander?” he enquired, pouring a Centauri Mega Gin before I even answered him.

“Yeah, Dom, thanks. Busy day?” I replied.

“Ah not so much, it doesn’t really kick off until later when the rest of your crazy wingmen start arriving.” he joked, handing me my drink...

Greetings dear sister.

I have a confession to make. I am back on the booze. Not two days after I sent my last transmission from Darakh trying to convince you that I had turned over some new sober leaf, I was back swigging Gerasian Gueuze Beer by the caseload. It bloody glows in the dark! I have also discovered that I have acquired a taste for Centauri Mega Gin, thanks to Dom, the host at the Star & Garter here on Fisk Port...

Eta Draconis – New Horizons

You may be wondering how I ended up in the Star & Garter on Alvares Terminal. It wasn’t an accident.

Due to some unfortunate events that saw me leave the icy, snow capped peaks of my home planet Darwyn, Zeta Tucanae, I made my own way in the galaxy for seven months, mostly exploring nearby systems trying to make a quick credit. I’d seen the Pleiades. I’d seen the Vela Pulsar. I spent considerable time in the Darahk system, were Noblehome station quickly became a base of trade and exploration. I liked it there but the Federal presence reminded me too much of home. When news of the Kappa Fornacis debacle hit the screens, I wanted out.

I’d seen wars over drugs and people bombed in their houses over laws and rules and regulations...
