Chapter 1

The docking ramp from Mudd’s ship retracted and Michael hailed Harry and said, “Thanks for the help Harry, I owe you one.” Harry said, “No problem Mikey boy!  You don't owe me anything!” There was a short pause and Harry said, “Well, maybe...” Michael stifled a laugh and said, “Bye Harry.” After they said their goodbyes Harry’s ship turned away and left the asteroid field as Peter came to the bridge and said, “Dude where did you get this ship?” Michael replied, “It was a special project Zhargosia Space Command was working on before this chaos started.  When Lord Serenity announced himself and started tearing apart both Zhargosia and the Federation the long distance shuttle was shelved.  I had some of my contacts within SHIELD dig it up and were able to finish it and drop it off here.” Peter said, “Heavy stuff bro.  What are you calling her?” Michael replied, “I think Runabout would do nicely.” Michael pressed a few buttons and said, “Okay Peter, where is your ship?” Peter looked at his console and saw a star chart and Peter scrolled through until he found a nebula and said, “The Gashula Nebula, no more than a day away.” Michael pressed a few buttons and said, “Course laid in.  If I was all of you, you better put your seatbelt’s on because Its been a long time since I done this on my own.” Peter sat next to Michael as Chloe sat to Michael’s left and Gamora sat at Peter’s right while the rest sat in the lounge.  The Runabout left the orbit of the asteroid and the asteroid belt and Michael pressed another button on his console before pushing a lever forward and he said, “Warp 5 to the Gashula Nebula!” And the stars in front of the Runabout turned into white lines and the Runabout went into warp.

Michael got up from his seat and said, “That wasn’t so bad.  I don’t know about you but I am starving!” The others followed him as he went to the lounge and he stood by the food replicator, pressed a button and his food came out before he sat.  Peter looked astonished and said, “Dude, that thing makes food that you want?” Michael said, “It’s called a food replicator and it does.  You can order anything that you want, so long as its in the computer banks and the food banks are full.” After Chloe order hers the others ordered their’s but stood hesitantly as they watched the replicator reveal their meals before they sat down and ate.  After they ate Gamora and Drax spent their time sharpening their blades while Rocket modified his rifle as Groot sat in one of the rooms and slept while he snored and Peter sat in the bridge listening to his walkman while Michael and Chloe slept.

heavyreader: great scifi novels but needs a better spell checker (check auto-substitution level) and grammar checker!!! otherwise, ready for mass market publishing!!

Dru83: This is the second or third time I've read this one and I just love it. It has just about everything you could ever want packed into one scifi story. It still has some parts that are a little rough in terms of grammar, punctuation, and word usage, but it's still an awesome story. I love how detai...

Sara Grover: Being that this is your first story and I assume first draft, a lot of little mistakes are common, we all have made them; little things like your instead of you're, missed capitalization, missing punctuation, etc. As for the plot, I have a lot of questions and I did leave comments on certain sect...

John Smith: This is what Sci Fi is all about. Reads like early Heinlein. In the style of Space Cadets. No esoteric problems..but good ol blaster and space action with a host of relatable characters

PaulSenkel: If you like Arthur C. Clarke's Odyssey, especially The Final Odyssey, then you will probably also enjoy this book. I definitely did.It does, however, address a more adolescent public than the above-mentioned book.I enjoyed the story and finished it in a few days. The overall situation on earth an...

Tiffany Thomson: This story is not something I would normally pick up and read but I'm so glad I did, I wasn't able to put it down and my husband was yelling at me at 3am to put it down and go to bed (just waited for him to doze back off before picking it back up) I really hope Natalie brings out another book eit...

ericaporamoralcine: La trama es muy interesante y original y eso ya dice muchísimo cuando todos tratan de triunfar con ideas ya trilladas.No puedo opinar en detalle sobre la gramática, porque a pesar de entender el inglés a la perfección, la falta de uso en cuanto a lectura y diálogo hacen que me maneje bastante mal...

The fight sequences are a treat especially when Isanfyre is training to become a warrior. I found the names really cool and thankfully easy to pronounce. Personally I have always struggled w...

re8622: The Last Exodus quickly grabbed my attention. Almost as soon as I started reading the story, I couldn't put it down.

Oru Manna: Within this tale is a cast of characters with intensely unique voices and personas; each one radiating their own desires so clearly, you would think they were all written by different people. Their behaviors, their speech patterns, even their thoughts are so independent of one another, it really ...
