Torken’s Rift is a frontier world with many secrets. It lies a respectable distance away from more civilized worlds, close enough to be within reach, but remote enough to be considered to on the rim of controlled space.
It has a long-established penal colony, host to prisoners that other societies have relinquished responsibility for. It also has a bustling new farming settlement, one which has been providing much-needed foodstuffs for spacers and Dog Star teams across a thousand systems.
Beneath these two hives of activity, an indigenous race goes about its business, content to ignore the interlopers, unless something happens to change the status quo.
