When I woke up, I found myself inside a spaceship.

I guess you guys think I’m talking nonsense here, but I also have absolutely no clue about what exactly happened to me.

I was really close to completely losing it, but fortunately, I managed to notice that this place was really similar to the world featured in a game I was playing recently.

Am I dreaming? Nope, it’s no dream. Maybe I actually got sent to a different world or something?

But didn’t those things usually involve getting sent to a magical world with elves, dwarves, dragons and whatnot?

In any case, I don’t know what caused this, but I guess I’ll just have to suck it up and live properly in this world from now on.

It’ll be okay. I got my trusty spaceship so I can probably make some money. It’ll work out! It has to!

This is the story of a man abruptly thrown into space along with his private spaceship. He runs around with it and saves damsels in distress along the way, flirts with said damsels, earns money as a merc-for-hire and uses his gaming knowledge to work his way into living freely and easily.

      Latest chapters actually exist in the database, but were not appearing due to a problem on the chapter list page. Fixed the issue and all novel chapters are now visible.

Worthy to read, funny situations, nice romance, good characters not boring, story is proceeding at a good pace and it's space craft novel 👍💯.

I was hoping for sex to be a detailed one :'( huhuhu 🤣✌😂


Kinda boring in my opinion. It’s basically just another Japanese Isekai light novel where the main character is OP and picks up girls just for being nice to them, except it is in space. Seriously; they still manage to use the god damn feudal system in space,. Stop it Japan, you are way too obsessed with feudal settings. Not really much plot and the world-building is full of plot holes. This is only good if you have nothing else to read and want to turn your brain off for a sort of slice of life space adventure.


Alright, I've read the manga of this one and didn't expect it to have a web novel series as well so this nice. This is a good read for those who are wondering. And also said this on the manga but. This is like Elite Dangerous. For those who plays the game hey there mate. For those who dont know of it. Hey there, search it up if you're curious. But anyway, yeah. If you know Elite, you'll get basic idea about what's happening easily


A well written space-fantasy novel which has good romance , not rushed story , detail info about things , nice characterizations , etc. Overall a funny and enjoyable story which is worth reading


Awesome, and detailed translation including language quirks and accents. Vibrant world with a lot of details, decent pacing, subtle romance, and most of all very good story so far - all you could wish for from space opera/sci-fantasy story.


Is it just me or is this novel great? I actually give it a 5 star rating and I've only red two chapters. Definitely worth a shot its a solid plot.
