Monstrous overpopulation of Earth has forced its government to undertake drastic measures. Since there was no chance for voluntary migrations to distant colonies (life out there was primitive compared to Earth), a new, restrictive law was established to force people off the planet.
Men, women and children were transported in large colony ships that usually consisted of one small steering unit and a dozen or so huge biospheres. The latter were like whole autonomous lands, each one with their own ground, atmosphere and even artificial sun. A piece of Earth in a box! This way a biosphere could be dropped on virtually any planet and provide a home for the settlers until they manage to bring their foreign environment under control.
Maximus XV was one of these transport ships. Colonists lived inside biospheres and had no idea of where they are going to end up. They were given basic equipment that could be of used when colonizing a new land. No one suspected that they'd be better off with weapons...
The colony ship, Maximus XV was on course. This was supposed to be an uneventful trip. No one on board expected to find the most dangerous predator of space; the Black Nebula. The Black Nebula is a gravitational entity that sucks in everything within its grasp. It quickly swallowed Maximus XV.
The colony ship and its passengers were not the only race that was captured and trapped within the Nebula. Ships loaded with creatures of unknown species have been trapped for years. They have learned how to survive by feeding on newcomers.
They quickly attacked Maximus XV, taking over one colony biosphere after another. The passengers were caught unaware and barely put up any resistance against the merciless invaders.
The last biosphere was different. With impromptu weapons colonists managed to fight off the attack, but they were still under siege, surrounded by countless enemies. Now, the only way to get out of this alive is to get to the emergency capsule and use their powerful engines to break free from the Nebula. But the capsule is at the other end of the ship and the path leads through all the biospheres, now colonized by alien creatures.
This is a one person job. Only the best of the best will have any hope. Hope has a new name – Space Hack.
An ex-officer of the Space Marines; strong, proud and maybe a little too hot-tempered was honorably discharged from service, but upset the wrong people and ended up ‘volunteering’ to join the colonist on Maximus XV.
He became well known and received his nick name after a daring take over of a pirate ship in a spaceport of Mars. He walked on board armed with nothing but a machete and a set of sideburns that would make Elvis jealous. He killed 30 pirates and rescued 150 hostages. After that, people started to call him Space Hack.
