Fifty years ago, Mira, humanity’s last hope to find new resources, exited the solar system bound for Proxima Centauri b. Seven years into her mission, all transmissions ceased without warning. Mira and her crew were presumed lost. Humanity, unified during her construction, splintered into insurgency and rebellion.
Now, an outpost orbiting Pluto has detected a distress call from an unpowered object entering Sol space: Mira has returned. When all attempts at communications fail, S&R Black, a Sol Federation Marine Corps search and rescue vessel, is dispatched from Trident Station to intercept, investigate, and tow the beleaguered Mira to Neptune.
As the marines prepare for the journey, uncertainty and conspiracy fomented by Trident Station’s governing AIs, begin to take their toll. Upon reaching Mira, they discover they’ve been sent on a mission that will almost certainly end in catastrophe.
The Derelict saga is a suspenseful mashup of hard military sci-fi, space opera, and mystery.
Some mysteries shouldn’t be solved.

Sci-fi excellence

A great story. I have been listening for months, one hour at a time as I walk my daily 3 miles. Not is it extremely entertaining, but it distracts me from the unpleasantness of exercising.
If you are a sci-fi fan, you will enjoy Derelict.

Slow burn. ,

Amazing amazingness

Well worth the listen, actually just sub to everything Mr Cooley has you won’t be disappointed. I am truly jealous of all the listeners that get to binge listen to this whole story! Waiting for Friday.. and sometimes Saturday.. and maybe a Sunday now and then, had been the highlight for me!
