The year is 2250 and we are witness to a historical trial of one of the Silver Fleet’s youngest and most promising Captain, Richard Sparks, who has been accused of murdering a fellow crew member during the Silver Star’s lengthy trip to Jupiter’s moon – Europa. But the crew are divided as to whether the Captain is to blame for the fiasco or there was a bigger conspiracy on board. The Silver Star was on a search and rescue mission for one of her sister ships – The Silver Wind and if they locate the missing ship or finding any surviving crew, the mission would then move onto becoming a research mission. Is this the reason there is a murderer on board the Silver Star? The key suspect / conspirator of the murder is 1st Officer Mario Grant, who is thought to be dead by the end of the mission. However, his version of the story shows just how he was cheated and was coerced into smuggling resources off the Silver Star. Is he truly as innocent as he shows others he is?
