Trying to save my class from being kidnapped by aliens was a challenge, it's true. But it was kids' stuff compared to living on the spaceship New Jersey. Luckily I have a teacher to help me. He's called Hoo-Lan, he's three foot tall and he glows in the dark. We could spend years exploring together.
Unfortunately we don't have years. We don't have even weeks. You see, the New Jersey's mission is to destroy Earth. The Interstellar Council just doesn't think Earth is worth keeping. Hoo-Lan's going to help me convince the Council that it is.
