Jack lives and works on EM-05, a steampunk space station found on a major trade route between Earth and Mars. He spends his days tarring the insides of frigates and galleons, as they stop for repairs and supplies, on their way to the distant planets of the Solar System. There are very few other children that work on EM-05 and so it can get very lonely for Jack. However, he does have one close friend, an abandoned cat named Jet, and the two of them are inseparable.Sprocket and the Sparrow
Sprocket (Robot Thirty Seven) loves his work and he takes great pride in packing tin cans neatly into wooden crates.

He tries to share his newfound excitement of the sparrow discovery with his fellow robotic co-workers, but to no avail.Leif's Quest
