Description: Clarke, a mechanic and technician on board the space craft, makes a daring plan to steal and take over the space ship in order to free himself and the other people forced to stay and work on the ship.

Summary: Clarke =, along with hundreds of others are all working slaves on a space hub launched in space. Clarke is an intelligent technician who's been performing different tasks for the space ship in order to keep things running and for people to survive. What the higher officers don't know is that Clarke, during his hours of work, has been secretly creating a way to steal the ship and put it into Mars' orbit and free everyone on board. Clarke eventually becomes acquainted and friends with his cabin neighbor, Nora, a nine year old little girl who lives with her mother. He eventually become close with them and one night Nora shows up crying because one of the officers had just severely beaten her mother. Once this happens, Clarke puts his plan into action so he can save Nora and her mother before it's too late.

Excerpt: The soft, yet insistent chiming from my wrist unit eventually made me open my eyes. At first confused by my surroundings, I then spotted Nora standing next to her mother's regrowth tank and it all came back in a rush. If my alarm was sounding, it meant I had an hour before my automated units went active and I wasn't ready yet.
