Story Summary

In a delightful homage to Dickens' "Oliver." Captain Dodger, his most trusted mate, Ollie and a ragtag crew or men and women man a decommissioned FAGN ship, The New London. But the ship is failing and the closest planet where they can find another ship, while seemingly friendly, harbors a dark side that threatens to kill Ollie if the crew doesn't act fast.
