Having successfully escaped from KX42, the crew of the commandeered Federation Prison Transport vessel 024 were hopeful that they would now be free people - free to sort out a future for their lives away from the prying eyes of Federation guards.
However, what they did not count on was their new vessel needing to make immediate planetfall because of severe damage suffered during the scuffle on KX42. With a crippled ship around them, Style Asmiov and Jorma soon realise that they might be stuck on their new home for some time.
Before too long, though, the trio make the acquaintance of one Teena Macer - a suspicious dealer from a nearby trading colony. She offers to supply them with the parts needed to repair the ship - but do certain offers of help come with too high a price for some?

Things to listen out for...
- The name of the planet (Kerona) and the trading post (Ulence Flats) are both names used in the game Space Quest, and are used here as easter eggs for fans of that game series. Ulence Flats itself is an anagram of flatulence, which gives a clue as to the type of humour featured in said game.
Things you probably never knew...
- Originally the artwork for the entire serial was to be undertaken by digital graphics artist Paul Eaton, who sadly had to move on from the project after only completing the first two covers. This is his take on the cover for this episode.
