A new Science Fiction Young Adult ebook series for all ages.
A universe 350 years in our future. A tale spanning 1,000 years. Five teens, lost in space on a living starship. (The Vega Construction Base.)
See what's inside the Sampson K. Perry.
Bright Vega was first explored in 2255 but proved to be a sterile disappointment, with no livable planets. Instead, the fleet found nothing but cold, airless asteroids. The system was quickly forgotten ... until the Wasatti attacked. Then, Vega provided the perfect location for a secret construction base to conduct the research and development projects needed to beat the cockroaches. Ground was broken by 2320 (ten years after the first attack) and culminated in the creation of the sentient starship, Sampson K. Perry. The base is nothing more than tunnels and caves cut into the iron-hard rock of one tiny asteroid.
A small squadron of three frigates, led by Stephen Campbell, is all that protects the Vega Construction Base from the Wasatti. Rather, stealth serves as the best protection for the secret base, hiding in plain sight among billions of other asteroids.
The five children at the base (Jimmy, Ali, Henrietta, Stiles, and Peter) arrived at the VCB accompanied by their parents between 2358 and 2362.
Vega is a hot A-type star, nearly 40 times as luminous as Sol. A gigantic asteroid field serves as the perfect hiding place for a secret construction base for humanity in their war against the Wasatti. At its peak, approximately 3,500 humans and Hive lived at the base.
