the planet Gora is unnoticeable, no water, no air and no life. but it exists near more
popular worlds, that’s the only good thing about it, so the ships traveling between the
wormholes that keep the Galactic Commons stop in the planet Gora. if deep space is
highway, Gora is just your average truck stop.
At the Five-Hop One-Stop, long-haul spacers can rest and stretch their legs (if they have
legs), and get assorted supplies ,fuel and transit permits. an adventurous alien and her
sometimes helpful child work at The Five-Hop, they work hard to provide a small home to
everyone passing through.
when a technological failure stops traffic to aand from Gora, three strangers from
different species with different aims—are thrown together at the Five-Hop. Grounded, with
nothing to do but wait, the three strangers-an artist who has an appointment, a cargo
runner at a personal crossroads, and a mysterious individual trying to help those on the
fringes-are forced to confront where they’ve been, where they are going and what are they
or could be to each other.
