Stephens, was released on October 17, 2018. It is the third and final chapter in the Against the Aeon Throne Starfinder Adventure Path.

Impulse ControlThe heroes must infiltrate a secluded Azlanti science facility, liberate the captive scientists forced to study an experimental starship drive, and keep the device out of their enemies' hands. They soon learn of the drive's reality-warping power firsthand, but standing in their way is the dastardly Azlanti noble who has orchestrated the entire plot!
