HMS Impulsive

Impulsive is a war-era Intrepid-class frigate with the hybrid antimatter-plasma and nuclear-thermal drive common to that era. She’s posted to a fairly quite spot: the Botein system, where the main inhabited world is low-g and ice-covered, a mining world with a population of 40,000 or so, settled for around fifty years, that’s just starting to branch out into other activities. There’s a fair bit of through traffic, and many ships break their journeys here.
Findlay is, in effect, head of Sensors, but everyone has to muck in with general tasks. Lt Commander Brendan Carter, who’s been in the Navy for a while and mostly wants a quiet life, and the two Marine NCOs Sandy Smith and Alice Jones, find themselves in his company.
