This adventure comes from the science-fiction roleplaying realm I've been working on for some time. This wasn't with the same characters used for most adventures in this realm. Instead, this adventure focused on the crew of the Vendetta, who are far more roguish, dangerous, and dark than the other characters we have. The Vendetta is a small ship with a crew of six. The captain, Vincent, is a cybernetically-enhanced human war veteran, and his most trusted crew member, Anya, is a former resistance fighter from the same war. Along with Cobalt, the dwarf-like Drafel who fought in that war as well, these three have a lot of unresolved anger and harshness from their experiences. They are joined by Nathan, a human computer and technical specialist, Rebecca, a naive young medical specialist, and Ironstrike, a mentally-unbalanced Clayton engineer. The Claytons are a large, rock-like race that has formed close ties with humanity.
The crew of the Vendetta lives on a little on the edge. While most of what they do is technically legal, it is often barely so, but they still must evade law enforcement as the Vendetta is a stolen attack corvette. As a result, they were in hiding when Anya received a message from an old friend asking her to meet him to discuss an important job. This friend, Alex, a former Marshal, had been in prison for many years after having been convicted of murdering his wife. Anya convinces the captain to come out of hiding to hear Alex out, as she doesn't believe he was guilty of that crime.
Indeed, the job Alex says he wishes to hire them for is to clear his name so he can return to the life he had before the conviction. In prison, one of his old sources gave him information that suggests that his wife is still alive under a new identity and with altered genetics, using his family fortune to finance her own criminal organization. He is asking the crew of the Vendetta to help find her and capture her, believing that forensic scientists will be able to decipher her original genetic code and probably identify her, proving that he'd been framed. They accept the job, and with some investigation and a little luck, they learn where his wife, Eia, spends most of her time: a bunker underneath her corporate headquarters. Learning of a secret entrance to this bunker, they manage to infiltrate it and defeat the various deadly security systems in one way or another until they finally find the paranoid Eia in her office.
