Baxter Moon is in his second year of training as a pilot in the space scouts. He's opinionated and too sure of his own brilliance for his own good. He's just lucky that he really is nearly as good as thinks he is. After winning an appointment to the prestigious Galactic Academy of Scouts, Baxter has experienced one surprise after another. His current surprise is being placed in charge of a team sent to investigate the loss of two consular ships. Earth and Aqua have been having diplomatic issues, and decided to meet in neutral space. Now both ships have gone missing and Aqua will not allow the military to send in soldiers. Only second class scouts have the training necessary to do the job but not the training to use deadly weapons. It's a sticking point with the Aquans that's going to get a lot of people in a lot of trouble. From official release/information:
From back of book: From the log of Sigma-II squad
I also never thought we'd rescue a beautiful blue-haired princess in a ship that has been overwhelmed by a dangerous alien force who plan to take over Earth, paralyzing their victims with entertainment.
And this was just my first mission.
