Introduction (blurb)

From the back cover

Book 1 of 2

Fabian Stevens thought he was doing an old friend a favor by helping her and some eager young Starfleet Academy cadets test a new prototype vessel. There's a practical joker among the cadets, but Stevens figures that will just keep everyone on their toes...

Commander Gomez must help her crewmates solve the riddle, find the culprit, and free them all before more damage is done -- and people are killed!
