Okay, so let me get this straight. Not only are we dealing with the void of space but now there are zombies? Space zombies? And not only that but they don't actually have to bite you to infect you, just projectile vomit on you? Vomiting space zombies, great. Next thing you know they'll be fast too. Fast-projectile-vomiting-space zombies! This planet stinks. I'm leaving, just let me play one more round at the craps table before I cash in my chips. The basics: Past-his-prime cop works with loud-mouthed but "righteous" ship captain to uncover corporate espionage that has nearly started a war between the inner planets (Earth and Mars) as well as the OPA (Outer Planet Alliance). Oh yeah, and a protomolecule that creates vomit zombies.
