Here it is the middle of November and still too busy to really work on my conversion from Traveller to M-Space. I might just tell the story as it was originally outlined and see what happens from there.
Chapter 1 - Lost in Space and Time
The void of space was endless to the scanners with the exception of the asteroid belt at the edge of the scanning range. The on board flight control system had abruptly aborted the Faster than light jump due to an unknown error and shut the engines down. The ship was now gliding on the path it would have been heading on anyway. The crew was still in cryogenic sleep and only the automated systems were aware that there was a problem.
