The Lam-Ang Experiment (Book One: Alan M.G.)
by Michael A.R. Co
Hundreds of years in the future, the Dawn-1 is savagely attacked by an unknown entity from inside the Capariaan Nebula. Thirteen starships have so far vanished in this mysterious region, including the Dawn-1.
Three years later, Dr. Namungan, the mission's chief scientist, trains her own son to solve the mystery. But there's a catch: he's only nine months old.
