Novel: The Celestion-5 is set to be humanity's first manned ship to Neptune. For such an important journey, you'd think some care would be put into choosing the crew, but no! It was mostly random selection. Half of the crew are rookies fresh out of high school, and the other half are still absurdly young. This group of assorted goofballs will have to band together to survive the journey to Neptune and back. Updates daily at 9:00AM PST (until May 11th!)
Newest Chapter: Angelo reunites with a very special person and struggles to get settled on the ship.
Did Angelo have an excuse? Many, actually. He only had enough money for his Dryvr driver. Even if he thought to bring more, the guy robbed him. This left him with no money to do his laundry when his travel unit went to hotels. Hiding under a concrete fort probably didn’t help matters. Could he bring himself to say all of that?
Leon raised his hand.
“He is a star ranger.” The captain paid him little attention. “I expect he can speak for himself.”
Leon shook his head. “He can’t, sir. At least, not right now. We don’t really know what it is, but crying makes him not able to speak for a little while.”
“I see. Both of you are assigned to furnace duty. You for speaking out of turn, again, and your brother for his failure to comply with Interstellar Forces appearance standards.”
Once again, he raised his hand.
“You may speak, Ranger Summers.”
“But I was already assigned to furnace duty today.”
