The three adventures contained inside highlight most of the various rules outlined in the core book so you can expect ship-to-ship space combat, exploration and political maneuvering galore. There is plenty of conflict and the normal gritty 40k vibe comes through loudly both in how the stories are presented and the tasks they set forth for the players. The missions are not black and white, good versus bad, so there is ample opportunity for players to delve into moral equivalence and personal corruption as they solve the problems they are presented with in true 40k fashion.
Suffice to say, the GM I had before changed things around in creative ways. I think this book gives GMs a good overall layout of the plotline, and leaves lots of room for and gives new ideas and side plots. I feel even though I haven't run it, that I have room to do a very different flavoured adventure than what I first experienced. Highly recommend to any new GM not sure how to run a good Rogue Trader campaign.
In conclusion: There are 3 overall arcs that seem to need to be done in order. However, the side plot potential is huge, and one can easily come back to these sideplots at a later point after the end of the main plot. 5/5 for me.
