When a group of young recruits respond to an S.O.S. coming from Freighter 601, they get more than they bargained for.
Introduction by Jordan Stine
Our story begins with, "A crescent wrench-shaped ship drifts around a small, beige moon." It's a sentence I've read over a thousand times. For me, it's reminiscent of Star Trek: The Motion Picture. As goofy and franchise-grabby as that movie is, the opening is one of the most beautiful moments in the Star Trek franchise. If you've never seen the film, (which is like watching a Windows 95 screensaver on acid), for the first three minutes the audience zooms through outer space at light-speed. The overture softly plays like an orchestral piece at the beginning of an opera, briefly romanticizing a pensive trek through the cosmos. Stripping away the summer sci-fi blockbuster and lens flare. The destination is unclear, but adventure beckons.
Space Cadets Radio is a story about a man, his crew, and their trek to alien worlds. They head towards the unknown with swashbuckling space pirates in search for hidden treasures. "A crescent wrench-shaped ship drifts around a small, beige moon," awaiting the seemingly inevitable journey to solve one of the universe's biggest mysteries; the legend for the Goliathon.
