whimsical nature doesn t stop, exactly, but it shifts into a kind of Home Alone vibe where young Zero needs to use whatever he s got at hand since this is a sleeper ship, there s a lot of cargo, but it s not like Zero knows where anything in specific is to defend the ship, take down the pirates, blast the asteroids, and find himself another place to go into stasis before the ship accelerates for the journey to the new planet and turns him into goo.It s fun, it s cute, and I think even adults will enjoy this full cast production, making it a great choice for a car trip with the younger family

interstellar colony The ship will be sent on a 105 year journey to a habitable planet 20 light years away, and Zero and his family will wake up as if it were the next day, ready to start colonizing Except there is a malfunction in his stasis pod, and he wakes up alone on a ship that has been abandoned by its pilot The ship s AI is only moderately helpful, Zero gets to blow up some asteroids, and then space pirates out around the Kuiper Belt try to hijack the ship, and Zero has to fend them off Of course the pirates include a spunky girl Zero s age.Being written at the middle grade level, the story requires a few suspensions of disbelief, but the science is not completely implausible and the characters are credible if juvenile Like Macauley Culkin, Zero sneaks around aboard the ship, setting up traps for the bad guys, who while a bit comical will definitely kill him if they catch him Their motivations are not completely silly, and the story hummed along.Is this a worthy heir to the Heinlein juveniles I loved in my youth It s a bit juvenile than those, but both the science and the characters are a lot contemporary, and I really enjoyed listening to this despite the fact that it s a kid s story I highly recommend it for any budding SF fans flag 2 likesLike see review View 1 comment Dec 19, 2018 Eric Allen rated it liked it This one was okay, but it was a little too kiddie
