Introduction Aesthetic, biological and chemical alterations are the norm for societies elite. Centuries of profitable and underhand business tactics has resulted in some families being unimaginably rich. With a truly unlimited budget you can see and do everything. However, with increasingly long lifespans (for the wealthy) there appears to be nothing left to experience. Seeing a gap in the market, one entrepreneur has started a magnificent cruise travelling between galaxies.

On board there are a multitude of facilities and amenities to keep guests occupied for the entire century long voyage; not all of which would meet the morally acceptable standards of peoples’ home planets.

As exciting as the trip may seem, there is no escape when a dead body shows up and all emergency shuttles have been jettisoned.

A vacation on the cruise ship Aurora is the ultimate paradise for those who can afford it‌ until now.

Character Synopsis Detective Asya Klimek


CHARACTER BACKSTORY

Detective Asya Klimek is an experienced detective, having been on the force for over 10 years. After suspecting her superiors of corruption and getting a little too close to uncovering the shocking truth, Detective Asya was reluctantly reassigned to cruise ship Aurora as head of security. Disappointed and dejected, Asya plans on relaxing, reading and biding her time; until she can return and address the issues at the precinct. The only perk she sees in the job, is the unlimited access to not only the ship but its facilities. She undergoes holographic implantation surgery to fit in with the exclusive guests, all the while feeling like an outsider, and having to turn a blind eye to the borderline criminal activities. With her only friend on board being her trusty companion Lance (the cat), she foresees a long and lonely 200 years. That is, until the first grisly murder victim appears. Trapped on a ship with hundreds of suspects, she is determined to solve the case before the murderer can escape.
