The (real) Story Of Scoville

You're among a flotilla of four ships that survived passing through a black hole. The fabric of space and the general physics you've known have changed. You have entered a new physical dimension where even gravity behaves differently.

By mining asteroids and collecting basic elements from space dust (some never before encountered ), you muster just enough thrust to move your spacecraft. You typically travel toward the nearest object, usually another ship. But they may not be where you thought.

Sometimes you'll move forward, sometimes backwards. It's a real mind-bender! Time is running out to save your crew and ship. Around you are grim reminders of failing to escape. You gape at the frozen hulks of dead spacecraft that litter the escape route. …
