After having escaped from Kelso Station, Tina and her crew run low on supplies.
Both stations they can visit are in pirate hands. They have to make a toss-up which would be the safest. They choose the bigger station.
But while they’re in the dock, trying very hard not to be noticed until they can negotiate the ridiculous supply wait times before they leave again, Tina finds out that her daughter Evelle is a prisoner at the station.
Trying to free her brings Tina much closer to the pirates than she ever wanted to get.
