Cedric was a brave police pilot whose job it was to catch people who broke the law. But Cedric wasn’t an ordinary police officer – he was a S.T.A.R. policeman (Special Tactical Astronaut Ranger). It was the 24th century and STAR police officers flew spaceships around the Solar System to protect people from Prince Blacklung’s space pirates.
Cedric sat in his cockpit as his ship circled Saturn gracefully. He drank a little juice from a cylinder as he watched the centre of his computer screen. His robot engineers were repairing the ship’s engine and he was watching out for space pirates. About 10 minutes earlier Prince Blacklung’s space pirates had sliced his engines with their lasers. Cedric was in trouble and he knew it!
Prince Blacklung and his pirates were the opposite of nice. If he and his pirates found Cedric they would celebrate by destroying his ship.
