About


Welcome back, dear reader. When last we met, we were aboard the S9 and searching a debris field for treasure and signs of life when something goes terribly wrong.  To make matters worse, A pirate known only as ‘Shaggy’ waylaid the S9 and chased them from the debris field. After returning to the scene, Doty realizes something is off-it wasn't Buc lost in space, it was her daughter Brooklyn!

Let’s continue the thrilling escapades and join the crew folks aboard the S9 where we figure out what happens next. 

The Creative Team at Crowsong Productions brings you... S9 #2

A story set in the future following one family, their adventures, strength and will to survive...in space.

It may be an imperfect future, but it's ours.

Outside of a planet formally known as Earth, we join the expeditionary craft S9. Part adventure vessel, part tow-truck, the S9 is the prized possession of its skipper Doty and a universally known treasure-seeking vessel.

Mission

Skipper Doty has a lead- a debris field filled with ancient tech that’s been overlooked for years. 

During their first expedition to the site, the family’s father and and diver is lost in space, presumed dead.

 If the crew finds what they’re after, they’ll be set for life. If they don’t, their father may have died in vain.

When their return to the site is threatened by a space pirate, the stakes are raised dramatically as they try to escape with their lives. Will the crew avenge the death/disappearance of their father?  Will the crew survive? How will Doty’s teenage daughter cope with the loss of her father and role model?
