Someone has hacked the facility's network and is trying to gain access to the higher tiers. Galactic terrorism!

The Orbiter crew has only one recourse: To set a trap for the hacker, using one of the androids as bait. Coggi was chosen because of her intuitive nature, her curiosity often getting her in trouble.

Author Details

He is English, though resides in Belize at present. He runs a wildlife rehab' and release sanctuary in tropical forests far from civilization, though soon to retire from this very exhausting and sticky lifestyle. Two of his novellas have recently been accepted for publication and a full length novel is in the works. The characters he writes about come from flirtations with reality and personal experience, romance or love always a major element in the story, whether a psychological thriller or science fiction. Would you believe the real inspiration for his novella "Right of Human" was a coatimundi? Alan is fascinated by writing style and continually strives to invigorate this art-form, whether it be with hyper-fiction threads leading to different outcomes or dropping narrative in favor of dialogue driven plots. To one side: For more than 35 years Alan has been tirelessly writing a philosophy of science paper entitled "Time's Paradigm", re-evaluating our understanding of time and taking a fresh, in-depth look at how we perceive its passage. Yes, it is controversial and has many alternate view-points - well, that's how progress is made. It is published on line.

Steve Catto
About: Steve Catto is an old man, or at least that's what it says on his birth certificate. He was born in Yorkshire, but his parents took him to Australia when he was six years old and he grew up there, sometimes racing cars across the desert.

He was never very good at school, but the one thing he did learn was how to learn, and he started writing programs for the computer at the local university, much to the disdain of his teachers who told him that he would ‘never make a living out of that rubbish'. In his late teens he returned to the UK, and his parents followed him – which wasn't what he wanted because he was hoping to get away from them. His first proper job was in the computer department of an infamous Oxford publishing company, and he subsequently went on to write software for electricity control systems, and simulators for the military. He started to fly gliders and wrote programs to analyse the data from aircraft flight recorders, where he also learned to fly, and crash, lots of other types of aircraft as well – which was the best part of the job. At various times in his career he has also lived and worked in France, Switzerland, and Canada, and he now lives in Scotland. Since appearing in school plays as a child he has performed almost continuously on the amateur stage, and spent a few years scuba diving. These two things have nothing to do with each other. In terms of his pedigree as an author he has written many technical manuals and filled in countless timesheets, so is well versed in the art of conjuring up works of fiction, however he has never written a novel before, especially not one that involves a blonde girl and a man with a bow and arrow, but he did once spend three weeks working in a factory that made handles for buckets.
