Star Frontiers 5: Bugs in the System
"Venturi is a gas giant - a huge ball of gas that tried to be a star¸ but never quite made it. Now it just moans and grumbles and throws out magnetic storms once in a while. The atmosphere would suffocate you except that you'd probably freeze first¸ or be torn apart by the thousand kilometer an hour winds. You can 't even land there because it hasn't got a surface¸ not unless you count an ocean of liquid hydrogen. "But¸ we didn't let that stop us¸ not while there were all kinds of valuable chemicals swirling around in that gas-ball. That's where the jetson extraction platform comes in. It bobs around like a cork in the upper atmosphere¸ sucking in gas and distilling out the good stuff. Trouble i s ¸ the r e's something very wrong down there. I don't know what it i s¸ but it's already cost eight good crewmen. "Are you really sure you want this job?"

Some older content may reflect ethnic¸ racial¸ and gender prejudice that were commonplace in American society at that time. These depictions were wrong then and are wrong today. This content is presented as it was originally created¸ because to do otherwise would be the same as claiming these prejudices never existed.
