Humans try to put a face on the snarling maw of darkness that is space. They try to tame it. It’s too big for that. Once you wander away from the safety of the herd, the wolves slink in. Then there is only one law in space; kill or be killed. Learn who your friends are; keep them close. But keep your weapon closer. You never know when you’re going to need it.
One thing you can be sure; you will need it.
