In the far distant future, the Free Traders are the only group which provides order within the chaotic Empire, which is in trouble due to fighting between the Emperor and the Empress. Cyn Lystris is not interested in interstellar politics but in keeping himself safe which is why he transferred out of Free Trade to take a job with OVERSTARS MAIL. He believes that he will not be shot at, kidnapped or left for dead on a route that has had no causalities in years.

Of course now three mail ships have disappeared without a trace and the powers that be send a security agent on Cyn's ship to find out whether he knows what is going on, which he doesn't. On the trip he has six passengers, one of whom is going to challenge the emperor for his position. Neither Cyn nor the security agent knows who that person is but they realize someone knows that person is on the ship and wants to blast it out of the “air” before a challenge can be made.

Between action scenes, there is a sex kitten who is always trying to get a man in bed even if he is not willing; this makes for many amusing moments.
