STARDUSTERS

SYNOPSIS:
There is a race of beings called “Books” whose primary reason for existence is to gather information. All across the universe, Books respond to requests for information and do whatever they need to in order to find answers. This series follows a Book names Tapiet, who when we meet him, is trying to deliver information regarding a cure to a disease that is plaguing a particular race in the galaxy. The planet Tapiet is on comes under attack, and through his escape he ends up traveling with a soldier named Captain Rigell. In the quest to deliver the information, Rigell and Tapiet pick up two more crew members, and uncover a much bigger issue–a dimensional wave that is going to destroy all sources of power and technology in the galaxy. The only way to save the galactic races is to travel to a cosmic graveyard of ships and steal planet-sized vessels that can transport the inhabitants of the galaxy to a place far away from the dimensional wave.

CHARACTERS:
Tapiet: A child-like being who is part of a race called “Books.” They are collectors of information around the universe. They have a “genetic imperative” to respond to requests for information about anything, and they are living repositories of information. They take up quests to find and deliver the answers to questions that are asked of them.

Captain Rigell: A soldier who becomes protective of Tapiet, who he believes to just be a child. Only after getting caught up in Tapiet’s adventures does he begin to understand what a “Book” actually is, and how important Tapiet is to the universe.

Alpha Prime Korskoff: A doctor who requests information about a cure to a disease affecting a certain race of beings in his section of the galaxy. Tapiet responds to his request for information, but when they meet, things go awry and Korskoff becomes an unwilling member of Tapiet’s group.

Ting: A fairy-like being who joins Tapiet and Captain Rigell after they free him from slavery.

Silverband: A giant space worm that Tapiet befriended who has come to the aid of Tapiet on multiple occasions.
