Imagine Alien as a musical comedy. Or picture Darth Vader pausing mid-strangle to sing a rock ballad about how nobody understands him.
In The Pirate Queen of the Stars, notorious space-pirate Vega Valkyria wants out of the business, and all she needs is one last score. But when she ends up trapped aboard a derelict starship with her two worst enemies and a malevolent alien entity, it’s going to take more than the usual sci-fi plot tropes to get her out alive.
A lovesick android, human-on-alien action, and an epic on-stage space-battle combine to make this a fast-paced, hilarious, rock thriller that puts the opera back in space-opera.
