Group of the Week: The Hotshots

A brave group of firefighters lost their lives a few years ago fighting a wildfire in Arizona. They have inspired this post. (For details, see the CrossFit workout we try to do every year in their honor at my local gym – Hotshots 19.) The Hotshots Named after a wildfire crew from the 21st century,…

Group of the Week: Interstellar Waste Management

I will admit, this is a bit of a crappy post. Who really wants to talk about waste management? Well, apparently I do! IWM, Inc. – Interstellar Waste Management In the void of space, you have to make a choice with your waste. Do you void it into the void? Ship it into a nearby…

Group of the Week: The Drifters

No, we’re not talking about the doo-wop group from the 1950s this week. The Drifters in this case are a special brand of bravery or their own flavor of insanity, but either way — they have some great adventures ahead. The Drifters In an age of automated exploration, there is a definite lack of romance…

Group of the Week: Extra Dominion Expeditions

Long ago in another universe (Babylon 5), there was a little company called Interplanetary Expeditions (IPX) with a nasty reputation as a bio-weapons front corporation for the military. Well, let’s give that idea a little spin for the Aliens & Asteroids universe, shall we? Extra Dominion Expeditions, Inc. (XDX) Xeno-archaeology (XA), or the study of…

Group of the Week: MaxiMerc, Inc.

A week ago we introduced a struggling company run by two brothers – The Calamity Company. This week we have a mercenary company ready to do just about any job. As the Ghostbusters once said… “No job too small. No fee too big!” MaxiMerc, Inc. No matter what corner of the Dominion you find yourself…

Group of the Week: The Calamity Company

Last week we dealt with the Endless Council, a group of ridiculously wealthy folks trying to live forever. This week we have a company dedicated to reclaiming the resources and materials locked in old, abandoned facilities across the Dominion… The Calamity Company By the time of Aliens & Asteroids, the Dominion has gone through a…

Group of the Week: The Endless Council

We are starting a new series this month… The Group of the Week! I had a few requests for groups within the A&A universe that folks hadn’t seen or heard yet. That gave me some leeway to play a bit! By the way, if you haven’t checked out our Facebook group for all things Moebius…

N3C3: The Meet

When I sat down, I had no idea I would be meeting with a Glitch in the open. It was unprecedented in CyQ history – we hunted our prey and took them out, we never just talked to them. By the time I discovered the ruse, it was too late. No backup. Standard sidearm but…

N3C2: A Huge Risk

The Wollaston Watering Hole on the refining facility around Proxima Centauri was similar to many taverns I had seen on other worlds and stations. Each granted a wealth of data — human and alien appearance, behavior, trends, fashions, and relationships — all in a microcosm of the greater universe. Not all appreciated the surveillance however,…

N2C2: Proxima Centauri

It wasn’t easy infiltrating the Taylortech facility used as a refining plant in stationary orbit near BANCE-4. The people of Proxima Centauri were already paranoid enough after their colony almost collapsed a century ago — but after the recent dustup between Jordan Taylor of Taylortech and Alfus Bannon, our illustrious Cydyne CEO, relations have been…
