Space Pirates

Completed, currently seeking representation.

In the aftermath of mankind's first space war, the West is on the verge of collapse. Peace is tenuous thing. Those with power do as they wish, while the rest do as they must.  When astronaut Aran Aryanpour's ship is seized by captain Teymur Khan and his multinational crew of space mercenaries. Framed for a murder that could reignite conflict throughout the solar system, they find themselves stranded in the depths of space with no option but to plunder ships for survival. What follows is a deadly game of cat and mouse that pits an Iranian war criminal, a fugitive tai chi master, India's newest astronaut, and a monster from the planet Venus against the combined might of China, America, and the French Foreign Legion. Will they clear their names and find retribution, or will they go down in history as the first space pirates of Sol?
