MOTHERSHIP: HARD LIGHT

SYNOPSIS:
The charts said Perdurabo was a system rich in mining and salvage. They did not mention the solar radiation now crippling your ship. But sensors show a nearby asteroid where your ship could take refuge in its shadow. Visuals show an airlock built into the surface. Good, because your ship is practically glowing with radiation. Hope the locals are friendly!
