Your characters are mercenaries funded by a group of private organizations to overthrow a tech tycoon who has positioned himself to take control as ruler of the Frontier through corporate overthrows, contracts, and blackmail. He is just moments away from completing his plans at a legal and non-military seizure of the UPF by proxy and corrupt political connections.

The group of characters must infiltrate his compound and eliminate him or see an influential media mogul become a fascist dictator of all UPF space. His ruthless business practices bespeak how he would rule with an iron fist and unfeeling disregard for needy.

In chasing him down, your group uncovers files indicating a despicable plan to spread disease throughout worlds in order to gain a greater share of the wealth in the Frontier.
