How It Begins

In the early twenty-second century, adventurous citizens of Earth can travel to a place called "Gateway": a long-abandoned alien space station, now rediscovered by humans and turned into a jumping-off point for risky but potentially lucrative interstellar voyages.

You are such an adventurer, and have just arrived on Gateway. You are in your new quarters, and have nothing on you but a pair of coveralls. You have been assigned a proctor, who will show you around and get you settled in. In just a few hours, your first ship handling class will begin.
