Campaign of the Month: January 2012
Star Trek Late Night
Assassins were beings or machines trained to kill other beings, either for hire or for political gain. Many bounty hunters who had no objections to killing their targets or working for criminals straddled the line between assassin and bounty hunter.
Members of the profession were referred to by many euphemisms and epithets: “problem solvers” in the Corporate Sectors, “exterminators” in the Uncharted Territories, and “slayers” in the Federation. Whatever their name, most professional assassins were concerned solely with money, though some killed for political or religious reasons, or merely for love of killing. This made assassins simultaneously the best paid and most despised members of the galaxy’s underworld.
