It waits in the darkness.
Beyond Neptune, a routine prospecting mission explodes into chaos and throws Commander Jephora Cochrane and his crew into a crisis that will test their experience to the limit.
After crash-landing on the surface of an icy asteroid Cochrane’s crew discovers an ancient artifact that may hold the key to stopping a battle destined to shred civilization. Yet an attempt to rescue the crew of the Jakob Waltz brings civil war to the edge of the Solar System, and catches Commander Cochrane between an emerging authoritarian regime and a desperate fleet of resistance forces.
Understanding the power of the ancient Shan Takhu technology may be the only hope for the future of humanity, but first Cochrane must defeat the warships that will stop at nothing to control the power of the alien structure they’ve discovered.

Wings of Earth: Season One
The farther from home we get
The darker our universe becomes.
One hundred twenty-five years after discovering the technological legacy left by the ancient Shan Takhu, humanity is growing beyond the Solar System. With the beginning of interstellar exploration, comes the discovery that we are truly not alone.
Ethan Walker is a freighter captain just trying to pay his bills and stay out of trouble. He commands a ship running in the deep systems of the Coalition, but something he doesn’t yet understand, keeps spinning what should be routine cargo missions into dangerous trouble.
Pirates, slavers, terrorists, and genetically enhanced humans all conspire against him as he struggles to do the right thing and keep his ship and crew out of trouble.
Captain Walker doesn’t want to be a hero, but it seems the universe has other plans.
The enemy of an enemy…
Is still not a friend.
Recovering from a telepathic accident that altered his brain, Captain Ethan Walker takes time off, but his vacation in paradise rapidly becomes a real-life nightmare. When a former enemy tells him another colony is missing, Walker and his crew find their only opportunity to learn more is an alliance with a pirate captain who once tried to kill them.
Hoping to uncover information about the destruction of the second Coalition colony, they make a risky deal with Captain Jetaar for use of one of his stealth ships.
Unfortunately, when they arrive at the Tamilis system in a pirate cruiser, they must evade two FleetCom Multicruisers and the ominous Tahrat Shan Che to find their answers.
Only after they return to Jetaar’s base, does Ethan realize the actual cost of discovering the truth. His arrangement with the Pirate Lord has only one way out, and Walker and his crew must risk everything to keep from giving him what may be the ultimate weapon.

Beyond the Edge
Fifteen hundred light-years from home.
What could possibly go wrong.
Captain Ethan Walker wants to be back in space, instead he’s trapped in an endless bureaucratic battle to get his two interstellar freighters hauling cargo. Driven by frustration, he jumps at the chance to take on an epic run that will send his ships a thousand light years beyond the edge of Coalition Space. Hired by a mysterious corporation and its supernaturally beautiful agent, he soon realizes that no one in his world is remotely as they seem.
When a violent terrorist faction targets Walker and his crew before they begin loading their cargo, he uncovers a hidden reality where everything he thought he understood about human civilization is no longer true.
A secret war looms on the horizon and nothing he counted on can be trusted. Not even his own perceptions.
Far beyond the possibility of rescue, a mind-altering turn of events leaves Ethan fighting to save his crew and ships. His only hope of survival lies in trusting his instincts.
And the genetically engineered passengers asleep in his cargo hold.
Dust of the Deep
Some runs pay better than others …
Especially when there are pirates involved.
After almost losing his Shipmaster’s licenses, Captain Ethan Walker takes on three new crewmembers and the first job that will get him back into space. He realizes en route that the supplies and personnel they’re carrying make the ship a prime target for pirates. It’s too late. He has no option but to complete the run regardless of the danger.
Things get worse for the Olympus Dawn when they make a one hundred light-year detour to pick up an archaeologist who knows their actual destination, only to find that someone has kidnapped her.
While they’re waiting for instructions from the archaeologist who hired them, Walker learns that Captain Kendrick Jetaar will stop at nothing to capture their cargo. Captain Walker must escape the ruthless pirate lord before he and his crew become casualties in a war he didn’t know existed.
Fortunately, the load pays exceptionally well, if only he can survive to collect.
Echoes of Starlight
One hundred thousand colonists can’t disappear.
No bodies. No evidence of an attack. Just gone.
On what should have been a routine cargo run to the far edge of the Coalition, Captain Ethan Walker is carrying a payload of medical technology and two passengers returning home to Starlight Colony. When they arrive, they discover that everyone on the planet is missing.
The company he works for wants him to leave immediately, but he’s obligated to report to FleetCom that the entire population has vanished. Captain MacKenna of the Magellan, tells him stay put until they can arrive to begin an official investigation.
Caught between his legal responsibilities and the need to know what happened, Walker has to resist increasing pressure to defy orders. Unfortunately, his passengers make a decision that forces him into doing the one thing he can’t do.
Captain Walker must risk his ship and crew to return to the surface even though it may ultimately cost him everything.
Chains of Dawn
It was only a four-day safari.
On a super-earth, covered with a deadly jungle.
Captain Ethan Walker takes what should be an easy run to Watchtower Station in orbit above the inhabited heavy-world of Dawn. A delay in unloading their cargo forces them to layover for several days, and the station’s science director offers them the chance to visit the surface to observe the indigenous culture firsthand.
When a mistake leaves the human outpost on the surface exposed, a hunting party of superhuman Ut’aran natives capture Walker and his crew, and haul them off into the impenetrable jungle.
With the power to their life supporting exosuits dying, they must fight to survive against twice the gravity of earth while the three newest members of his crew attempt an impossible rescue mission.
Unfortunately, to escape they have to take on a cargo that puts them so far outside the law that if the Coalition catches them, the best they can hope for is death by hanging
