  • This is the story of Sean McKinnie, a young farm boy from the medieval world of Brae who longs to escape the family farm. On his way to begin study at the university, Sean stumbles into a fire-fight between troops of the local tyrant and Congressional Marines trying to overthrow Brae’s corrupt and brutal government.

    Saving the life of one ambushed Marine, McKinnie is taken aboard the Congressional starship cruiser Lewis and Clark and is befriended by the starship’s crew – becoming an unofficial ship’s mascot. His new friends realize that though McKinnie comes from a backwater world and is ignorant of interstellar politics, he is highly intelligent and might become a valuable asset as a covert Congressional agent. They teach him about Congressional history, including how humanity’s homeworld was destroyed in a collision with an asteroid.

    Surviving pirate attacks and deep personal losses, McKinnie grows from an innocent country bumpkin into a civilized young man, and develops a relationship with Lt. Alexandra Andropova, a young nurse in the ship’s medical department.

    Completing his training, McKinnie embarks on several missions to primitive worlds including a return to his homeworld of Brae. He discovers that slavers kidnapped members of McKinnie’s family and others from Brae to be sold to an alien machine-intelligence. Pursuing the slavers, Lewis and Clark and her crew must battle machine-controlled starships and a massive machine-controlled deep space station in a desperate attempt to rescue the kidnapped humans.
