Thistledown - NaNo '09
Here's a bit of a teaser for my attempt at NaNoWriMo this year. Of course, you can follow it over on my LiveJournal (red link in the sig), and I would appreciate any feedback as I try not to give up a week into it.
Like happened the last two times I tried NaNo...
Anyway, on with the show.
"The Queen's Gambit left Polaris Station twenty-three years ago on a mission to explore and inhabit the nearby planetary systems. Six years into that mission, communications were lost. Despite widespread searches, no trace was found. The Queen's Gambit, crew and cargo, was never seen again.
A scavenger, known to the Colony simply as Kip, has found the ship, empty and devoid of life.
Or is it?"
