ARS: Season 1

Following in her father’s footsteps, Star Captain Dani Devereaux longed to fill the absence left in the universe by the death of her heroic father.

She proudly charged into each battle with the alien enemy with two goals in mind: winning, and preserving the lives of those under her command.

But when Dani’s ship falls prey to a trap, her priority is to get as many people out of danger as she can.

Unable to save everyone, Dani assumes full responsibility for the lives lost.

But nothing is as it seems. With an unseen source feeding her information, Dani starts to wonder who really set the trap.

Pulling at loose threads unravels a tapestry of lies with Dani at the center. Now it’s up to her to put the pieces together and uncover the truth, before billions more die.

But first, she’ll need to rally her crew, acquire a new ship, and seek the help of the rebels, pirates, and aliens to take on the biggest threat in the galaxy.
