Nothing ever goes smoothly for the crew of the Raptor. They boldly go where many have gone before, and try to do better.

Lasers & Feelings is a simple, star trek style game filled with space adventure. Each episode features a different crew undertaking a different mission, exploring the wild frontier of space in their own unique, selfish, misguided way. Written by John Harper, Lasers and Feelings is an extremely elegant game that fits entirely on one page, making it excellent for a pick up and play adventure.

S1E1: What's Mined is Mine

The possibly irreputable Captain Darcy (Ikks)'s scout ship Raptor is hazardously staffed by podcast fanatic Dottore Baldoro (Mark), regular polygon Dr. Hexagon (Medibot), inexplicable canines Lil Bee (Ashley) and Lil Fly (Nate), and the state-of-the-art Autotarget 9000 (PoorWeather). When mines across the sector are targeted by pirates and the Fleet's first, second, and third choices of teams are unavailable, the Raptor is dispatched to track down the pirates and put a stop to their plunder.

S1E2: Grim Reputation? Dread Not!

Dr Hexagon, Lil B, and Autotarget 9000 of the Raptor continue a guerrilla assault, having successfully infiltrated the enemy ranks. At the center of deadly cannons, thick armor, and blazing ion storms lurks the nefarious perpetrator of this plot, Captain "Queen" Anne. How can one measly crew hope to compare to the ultimate weapon of Pirate Space's combined might?! When sacrifices must be made for the sake of the free galaxy, feelings flare and lasers lance-- just as advertised!

Lasers and Feelings 2: The Next Generation contains needles and syringes being used poorly and dangerously.

S2E1: 45% Mercury

The scout ship Raptor C was on a standard diplomatic escort mission to a galactic peace summit, when suddenly the entire crew fell prey to a highly contagious space disease! With 99% of the crew's carbon-based population unconscious, the robots are in charge. Join Comrade Core (Gnome), Winter (Panzerskank), and SU-NIT (Poorweather) as they try to save the ship with the help of Benjamin Darkley (Patrick O), the only human who didn't get taken out by the disease.

S2E2: Do You Require A Sedative?

The Raptor C was nearly ambushed by a ship full of Tuvisian cyber zombies, but with quick thinking and a handy cloaking field, our heroes managed to turn the odds in their favor. With the ship's regular crew still unconscious, its up to Comrade Core (Gnome), Winter (Panzerskank), SU-NIT (Poorweather), and Benjamin Darkley (Patrick O) to stop the cyber zombies from attacking the peace summit! Unfortunately for our meager crew, not everyone is after the same thing. Will this barely-formed crew save the day? Or will they tear themselves apart, chasing their own selfish agendas?
