“Galaxy 101” is the story of the events that take place at the end of the twenty-first century, when an inexperienced Earth is dabbling in interplanetary travel for the first time with a newly discovered thermonuclear power source in a spaceship called Friend.

Stumbling upon the truth that some of the other planets were bullies bent on galactic dominance, the unschooled Earthlings befriend their only ally, a young and brazen Martian pilot of half-earthen descent named Rodius Gladdenhammer.

With Rodius as their guide, they strive to garner an interplanetary alliance to ward off the aggressors in what culminates in a great galactic battle as the beginning of the twenty-second century is ushered in.

Can Earth defend herself against such interplanetary thugs and survive in a hostile universe?

Find the answer to that question and more in a light, creative, and informative trip around the stars as Earthlings go back to school and study Galaxy 101.
