Zachary Night has waited his whole life to start his top-secret training at Indigo 8 and become a Starbounder. But he’s only begun learning the skills he needs to protect the galaxy when a  mission goes wrong, stranding  him and his friends on a distant planet with a host of alien fugitives. When they uncover a plot to destroy Indigo 8, Zachary will have to race back to Earth. Can he make it before the training center–not to mention the planet–is lost forever?
