Mariana 627

Designation: Mariana 627
Distance from Earth: 235 light years
Days operational: 1523
Crew: 1

For Kurt, sole inhabitant of the distant station, days and months have become indistinct, his time given over to idle pursuits and routine maintenance. But that all changes with the arrival of Izak, Kurt’s robotic replacement that learns only by example…and Izak does not have the most proactive role model…

Mariana 627′ is a love letter to the sci-fi classics of the 70s and 80s, complete with plucky robots, shady corporations and surf-rock soundtrack.
