The job: a delivery, no questions asked. The problem: curiosity is a deadly sin.
A simple pickup and delivery. No questions asked; no looking inside the cargo. All it requires is a fast, stealthy ship and a crew who can keep their imaginations and consciences in check until the drop-off. The Mobius is up to the task, but when the crew can't control their curiosity, they're faced with a moral dilemma. Do they cut their losses? Contact the authorities? Take the money and run?
Or do they get talked into the stupidest, most reckless, and least profitable course of action they could possibly take? Doing the right thing.
A Smuggler's Conscience is the second mission of Black Ocean, a science fantasy series set in the 26th century. Do you wish there had been a second season of Firefly? Do you love the irreverent fun of Guardians of the Galaxy? Have you ever wondered how Star Wars would have turned out if Luke and Obi-wan had ditched the rebellion to become smugglers with Han and Chewie? Then Black Ocean is the series for you!

I'd like to laud the production/performance of this series. The voices are distinct and full of life, the narrator makes excellent use of verb cues (yawned comes to mind) and scene breaks are marked by a wooshy sound bite, which practice I'd frankly like to see catch on.
The Black Ocean novellas shine in audio form.
