MOONSTROKE II, Alien Territory
The isolation of Moon base Daedalus has ended after twelve years, and Katlin has left for college on Earth. Her home planet is not the dream that evolved from her childhood memories, though, and when news arrives that the base's liberator, Namazi, has been apprehended, she sets off with her only friend, Beau, to save him. Earth has turned its eyes on Daedalus's vast platinum store, however, and powerful forces are maneuvering to grasp the helpless prey, with Namazi playing a key, if unwilling, role. As Katlin and Beau are swept up into the violent storm, Van and the rest of the base's nexgens are finding that lunar life on their own is fraught with its own perils.

As the driver takes them higher and higher into the remote California mountains, the hapless volunteers debate what exactly they've signed up for. Just before their phones are confiscated, they find a paper published by the study's sponsor professor, predicting the effects on groups when confronted with dire dangers. As Caleb watches miles of wilderness glide past, he wonders if he should have settled for a life under a city overpass.

MOONSTROKE
It's been twelve years since a massive solar flare destroyed communications with the American base on the far side of the Moon, killing the platinum mining workers and leaving just three adults to raise thirty-seven orphans. Isolated, the base has carried on, and the orphans-now teenagers-have taken up the mining. It's all they've ever known. But now enigmatic lights on the horizon and in the sky mark the arrival of someone-or something-that heralds an end to a patterned life of restraint and enforced duty. Katlin, the daughter of the base leader, has enjoyed the full education afforded by the base library, and finds her loyalties torn between her father and Van, the capable young leader who is ready to break the yoke of servitude and face the wonders available in the wide universe.
