Mina Helling, the granddaughter of the late Professor Lucius Helling, awoke one morning to find that everything she ever knew about physics, biology, and the entirety of human history was wrong.

After attending her grandfather’s funeral, in place of commiserating with a gaggle of mourners displaying fake plastic offerings of condolences, Mina finds herself paired with Drake Mandrick, a humanoid alien with a solar powered brain and generally dismissive attitude towards life and most everything associated with it. Together, they steal a short-ranged vessel to escape the repossession of Earth due to non-payment, get captured by a group of moronic Phildaftians only to be saved by Drake’s crew just before they are suffocated in the cold vacuum of space, and venture on a quest through space and time to uncover the location of a lost cache of Pure Blue, the quintessential building block of everything that is, was, and always will be. It was just one of those days.
