As the insectoid alien Swarm surges across another system in the Vast, the heroes are the only survivors of a doomed military battalion. After retreating through several miles of war-torn terrain to a fortified command post, they receive orders to evacuate the planet and rescue any civilians along the way. Among the refugees is a shirren priest of the Forever Queen Hylax, a mysteriois ancient insect-goddess whose temple seems to be of particular interest to the Swarm. By relying on their wits—and each other—the heroes just might make it into orbit before the Swarm completely overruns their world.
Fate of the Fifth is a Starfinder Roleplaying Game adventure for four 1st-level characters. This adventure begins the Attack of the Swarm! Adventure Path, a six-part, monthly campaign in which the heroes fight back against a ruthless and nigh-unstoppable alien invasion. This adventure also includes a player's guide to battling the Swarm, an exploration of the Swarm's origins and biology, and a selection of new Swarm monsters and other terrible threats.
Found this by selecting the Starfinder drop down menu, then Adventures, then saw Attack of the Swarm popup to the right. I assume it's a website error.

I wonder if this one will have the players in charge of a larger ship (Kind of a Star Trek type set up rather than the usual guardians/firefly type approach)?
I don't know about being in CHARGE of the vessel, but I think an AP with a Gargantuan-Colossal Starship would be an AWESOME idea for a roving "home-base" with backup, stores, beds, and intel that can be relied on. Something with a crew of 100-400 and a real IC REASON for the story to stay "on-rails" in order to fight back the Swarm.
