Custodians of the Cosmos
Kale Butterly’s dream of being a starship officer seems dead when he fails the entrance exam for the Coalition Officer’s Space Academy. So he devises a fool-proof backup plan–get a custodian job on a starship, meet lots of officers, and impress and amaze them until they recommend him for the program. He only needs one recommendation, but Kale underestimates the exceptional level of fools his fool-proof plan is up against.
In this action-packed science fiction parody, Drayton Alan weaves the comic story of the unsung heroes who keep the starship COSMOS squeegeed clean. This quirky group of custodians, robot techs, and interior decorators find themselves fighting ignorance and aliens, with nothing more than high tech shop vacs and all-purpose spray cleaner. Can the custodians save the starship? Will Kale become a Ship’s Officer, as he's always dreamed? Can humans, robots, and a sassy race of squidmen live peacefully within the same galaxy? Find out the hilarious answer in Custodians of the Cosmos
