The Hyacinth Disaster

The Hyacinth Disaster is a seven-episode science fiction audio drama series about the crew of a mining spaceship between Mars and Jupiter.

The crew of the MRS Hyacinth rush to survey a Jovian asteroid, hoping it is worth enough to ransom the crew of their sister ship - the Corvus - before the deadline hits.

AD 2151

150 million resource-rich asteroids populate the void between colonized Mars and Jupiter; many more orbit in the gas giant's vast Lagrange regions.

A dozen supercorporations compete beyond the reach of civilized law, all but warring for the incalculable resources. Beneath them, a thousand contract mining crews struggle to prosper despite the best efforts of their employers.

Out here, life is harsh and lives are cheap. If one or two vessels fall victim to relentless corporate rivalry, what is that to the company?
