About the Book

Notice: This is a continual work-in-progress. New chapters are added periodically.

Star Trek is full of cosmic events, sexy starships, dashing crew, and amazing adventures. But it's also full of trash, which is where salvage ships like Icelandic Troll come in. Crewed by a small group of close, definitely-not-cut-out-for-Starfleet friends, the Troll has her own special kind of adventures, and this book shares those tales. Full disclosure: there are a lot of inside jokes, which will still hopefully bring you a chuckle or two. This isn't the five-year mission you're familiar with; these are the stories of the Federation's backwaters, seedy space stations, abandoned shipwrecks, and cosmic oddities. This is a small crew of misfits and renegades, making ends meet and showing what "family" really means. This is the Trek where Vulcans are pompous asses, pirate bars are a real thing, and where not every story has a happy ending. This is Icelandic Troll.

You can read the full book online without making a purchase, either by using the "Read Free Online" option for by grabbing the free sample, which is in fact the entire book.

If you choose to, you can "buy" the book for free, which is what lets Leanpub notify you of new chapters. If you do decide to spend money, it all goes to The DevOps Collective, helping to bring young people, many from underrepresented groups or disadvantaged situations, into the IT field.
