The ship is in need of water, so, using the map Valesque found on Capecea, the crew sets off to icy Glidz, the nearest water trade planet. Meanwhile, Valesque has unlocked some disturbing secret files on one of the upper crewmen. Long hidden secrets that could change the entire life of one person onboard.
With their record in the area so far, will our heroes be able to get the water they need from the tempermental Water Princess?
And if they do, will they be going home with one less crewmate?
Merena pursed her lips together as she gave the argonaut Engineer a loathsome glare. "I doubt the people would appreciate your ruining their trade by revealing the secret of the waters either." she disapproved.
"It's not like I am going to publish a paper." the Virrilian dismissed, as she pushed the rolled up sweater sleeves further up her arms. ?I just want to see how it works...
and see if we can get some water so we can be on our way." she justified.
"What you are likely to get is the rest of us in trouble." Merena grumbled in annoyance.
"Uh, oh." Valesque shrugged apologetically to Sanic as arms reached down to seize them.
Space Trippers is a fun Sci-Fi series.
Valesque Rhaugh is a Virrilian Engineer, banished from her home planet for allegedly selling weapons to the humans. She lives a quiet life, moving from place to place and constructing new gadgets. Lately she has been living undercover in hostile Earthian territory, constructing her latest project; a state-of-the-art scientific exploration vessel.
The corrupt Earthian organization, the I.P.A. has sought control of her inventions before, but she had always turned them down flat. One determined General has now set his sights on her unfinished ship. In one fateful day he has her unarmed vessel taken over and ordered out for war duty, against her people! Worse yet, they shanghaied her as part of the crew!
When she wakes up, three days after launch, kidnapped on her own vessel, her nightmare has only just begun. Soon she discovers a sinister secret as her long lost device, the Space Tripper activates and sends them all hurtling into the unknown.
When the crew finds themselves stranded in uncharted space all fingers point at her. Can she figure out what is happening in time? Or will they all be destroyed by her own hand?
Our short-tempered heroine is reluctantly befriended by a very flirty pilot, a shy young genius, an air headed android and a suspicious alien girl found drifting in space.
But can these people be trusted? With everyone's lives on the line can she figure out who to trust, who not to and how to get them all home?
Find out in the Space Trippers series, where espionage, love triangles and hidden identities abound. As well as a generous smattering of humor as tempers and personalities collide!
