Plot Overview

Baba Yaga is a plot centered around the privateers aboard the titular ship, the Baba Yaga. The ship is a variant of a β€œDivine Comedy” State-Issue Ayane obtained through trading with a Freespacer group.

The Baba Yaga is a privateer ship. With the desire of the crew to make a better life for themselves, the crew seeks profit and renown in the frontiers of the Kikyo Sector. All have their own reasons. Some merely sign on to make a wage, some come seeking fame and fortune, others just want a place to belong. With the retirement of Captain Mikhail β€œBruin” Zakharov, Justin McCallum assumed the Captaincy, who has his own motives as well, and they lead him and the crew to the frontiers. No matter their motives, all of them are joined in the pursuit of wealth for one reason or another.
