Spice Frontier takes place centuries after Earth’s annihilation by an alien species called the Krivins. It is the story of a chef named Kent Williams, who dreams of finding the lost spices of his Human ancestors so he can share the joy of Earth’s forgotten recipes with the universe.
Before the arrival of the Krivins brought about the destruction of Earth, a great interplanetary migration took place. Many of the migrating colonies brought with them their cultures’ most cherished spices. Following years of research, Kent has mapped out the likely location of these lost Human communities who have spread to all corners of the universe.
On board their ship the Serrano, Kent is joined by Eloy, a Faarian mechanic who designed and built the vessel. Their highly skilled pilot is C-LA, a super advanced, virtually indestructible cyborg assassin. Ada, a young botanist with a secret family history, assists Kent in tracking down and identifying plant species. Two former adversaries also call the Serrano home: an infamous hacker and technical genius named Modari, and a deadly mechanoid called Nexus.
Kent and his crew traverse the cosmos looking for rare Earth spices, but that is only the beginning of their adventures. They will come to know the diversity of the universe and its 39 known alien species, experience the wonder and danger of its myriad fantastical worlds and creatures, and face the threat to their lives as they learn that they are being hunted by a ghost from C-LA’s past.
