Drake Paulsen returns to Socorro after a smuggling run. He runs into Toob Ancher, who is leaving the world for good, expecting to die soon. He then goes to Karl Ancher’s Black Dust Tavern, where he refuses a summons from Secles Uslopos, who is wanting him to take a job for Abdi-Badawzi. Upon leaving, Drake is stunned and taken to Abdi’s fortress anyway. There, he sees his father, Kaine, being threatened, and is forced to relent and take the job. He is to be aboard the Seldom Different, captained by Elias Halbert with the Coynite Warrior Tra’Parr’Sratt. They are to be a decoy to fool Imperials while another ship makes a run in the Nodgra system. When they are stopped by the Imperial Star Destroyer Inquisitor, a stormtrooper fakes an “incident” to let the Imps use him as an “example” of what it means to be insubordinate (or threatening) to a stormtrooper. They shoot him in the shoulder and leave. Drake passes out and awakens to the Sratt calling him Lom’Ka’Sol. He is on the Miss Chance one of the two ships he and his father own. His father is also there, free of Abdi’s clutches. Kaine informs Drake that Sratt was there when he was born and called him Lom at the time. Now “Lom’Ka’Sol” means he believes the young Drake has come of age. They head back to Socorro to pick up their Ghtroc freighter, the Steadfast.
