USS Hathaway: Episode 14: Market Value
Tasked with exploring a new frontier, the Hathaway crew investigates when they receive reports of someone snatching members of an early-warp civilization near the Typhon Expanse.
Tasked with exploring territory beyond the Typhon Expanse, a distress call from the Aquorat system draws Hathaway into a modern slavery drama. When a slaver ship approaches the planet, Captain Gor and the crew hide their ship and watch the slavers at work as it becomes clear this venture is more than just one ship. With Hathaway hot on the tails of the slaver ship and their warp signature masked, the crew hatch a plan to board the ship at its next destination and rescue those taken.
