The PC's are investigators for Valkyrie Security, a company which blends security, law enforcement, and mercernary interests. (Similar to the Pinkertons of the 19th century, but with more scruples.) At the start of the campaign, the company had been hired by a sector governor (Gov. Caruthers) to investigate a small private research station (population 37) which has been lost to outside communication. A previous police ship sent to investigate was also lost.
At the start of the campaign, the PC's were sent out in a small ship, capable of 500c FTL speed. There were eight Valkyrie-employed crew plus the resident 4D engineer who operates the FTL drive.
