It’s the near future, and mankind has expanded its presence in space. Maintaining law and order beyond Earth is the responsibility of the International Space Police Force, known colloquially as the Star Cops. Their leader is Commander Nathan Spring.

3.1 Dead Air by Roland Moore
When Sonia Garrett dies during a routine moonwalk, the Star Cops suspect that her suit was sabotaged. As part of the investigation, Devis and Paul travel to an ancient space station to interview Xander O'Brien.

But the reclusive meteorologist has a surprise in store. He knows exactly who killed Sonia Garrett. Aliens!

3.2 Hostile Takeover by Rossa McPhillips
A crashed shuttle with no passengers or crew on board. The murder of a gangster. The kidnapping of a space station union leader. What connects all three cases?

As Nathan’s team investigate they encounter Alice Okoro, a corporate investigator for Wolfe International. What is her agenda? Is she there to hinder or help the Star Cops?

3.3 Death in the Desert by Sarah Grochala
When the sister of Lee Jones, his deceased former lover, is kidnapped from a research lab in Chad, Nathan travels to Earth to investigate in person.

At the same time, Paul and Devis discover evidence that someone may have found a way to smuggle narcotics onto the Moon, bypassing drugs testing.

As both investigations progress, an enemy of the Star Cops sees an opportunity to close a trap.

The High Frontier 1 provides another excellent set of cases for the Star Cops, feeling simultaneously faithful to the original but also bang up to date. While the spectre of organised crime is timeless, their methods keep pace with technology... The production values are excellent, and Steve Foxon provides pitch-perfect sound design in keeping with the original series. For fans of the show, this comes highly recommended. If you’ve not yet discovered Star Cops, it’s also a perfect place to start.

Indie Mac User

Complex, ambitious, optimistic and pragmatic, this is a great police procedural and a better science fiction police procedural. Also a surprisingly great jumping on point for the series. 8/10

Sci-Fi Bulletin

I've loved Star Cops since the moment I heard those "It Won't Be Easy" vibes and I bought the 7-inch single. This series just rocks, and I'll be gutted if Big Finish stop making them.
