Team Human. Stop immediately. Surrender your vessel and no one will get hurt . . .

Kimi is the pilot and Ben is the navigator. Together they are Team Human and they're in the race of their lives. They are out to prove to every alien in the solar system that Humans can fly. But first they have to choose the right spacecraft. One that's fast enough to win. And then they have to outwit double-crossing aliens and cold-hearted pirates. They both know it’s dangerous out there. Luckily they have a little help from a shape-shifting friend . . .
