An Oolite short story - The story of an attempt to reach the 'ninth' chart. As players familiar with Elite and Oolite will doubtless know, there are only eight charts reachable by Galactic Hyperspace. Does the ninth chart exist? Can it be reached? If so, what's there? This is a slightly chilling tale of the 'Ooniverse'.

This is a science fiction short based on the Oolite space trading game. No, I'd never heard of it, either. But you don't need to be familiar with this created Ooniverse to understand and enjoy this clever tale.

It's a multi-layered piece, with many themes, in spite of its brevity. But it can also be easily enjoyed as a simple story. The characters are all drawn with care and enough personality to make them real people rather than either caricatures or stereotypes.

The story moves at a good pace, e
