This is the first of a 7-volume series of Yah and the Space Cadets. The series narrates the adventures of twelve young explorers, including Yah, who is the son of Emperor Annur and Empress Nisbar. Their purpose is to establish a viable civilization in a far corner of the universe.
Suppose your people discover a faraway planet; would you send your own 15-year old son, named Yah, along with eleven of his school mates, to explore the planet and determine if it is fit for a civilization? The round trip takes a little over two years but the expedition needs to cross the Eanono Wormhole. Then again, how hard can that be? But just in case, you send a group of professionals to assist your son and the rest of the cadets.
It is clear that Yah and his friends will need several powers to accomplish the mission and, rather cleverly, you and your assistants devise a program of power-acquisition. The question becomes: Which powers should they acquire first? Would you include invisibility, the ability to see the future or just the power to be prudent but not fearful? Would that be beneficial to the expedition?
To make things even more interesting for Yah and his friends you do not reveal to them that you have plenty of powerful enemies and that, most certainly, they will run into them.
Fortunately, your son, his friends, and their companions are immortal. The cadets may be a bit naïve but they are also quick learners who fear nothing. What will happen to them during their first expedition? Will they succeed?
You will find the answers to these questions in the very entertaining and adventure-packed first volume of the series: “Yah and the Space Cadets / Well Before the Beginning / The First Expedition.”
“How did he manage to escape?” asked Ada.
“He jumped off the platform while the pole was swaying under a strong wind. He managed to grab the post and then made it down safely. He then disappeared. The following morning the guards noticed he was missing and started an intense search to recapture him, but were unsuccessful. They decided to cover up their mistake and have denied, to this day, that someone managed to defeat the prison system.”
“Do you have any idea where Nostcal may be located?” asked Ada.
“If I did, I would tell you, but no one knows,” answered the system.
“Surely, you must have an idea as to an escape route,” typed Ada.
“There are billions of possibilities. Too many planets to hide in,” said the system.
