The Forgotten Angel (Universe Factory 19)

I ran out of time on this entry. It's terribly incomplete, and a bit buggy. There are a lot of rough edges and missing conveniences. If something doesn't make sense, please consult HINTS.txt.

The fleet is massing for a covert operation in the Sector of the Nine Angels, a cluster of nine stars with a long, complicated history. Suddenly, one of the Angels undergoes a catastrophic collapse, that destroys most of the fleet and cuts off communication throughout the sector. The surviving senior officer on board the fleet flagship Exelu reaches out to a stranger flying a small, one-room capsule. Together they must do everything possible to make it through the disaster and solve the mystery.
