They arrive at their destination only to encounter an alien ship bent on destroying them and all other life in the galaxy. Now Lisa and the survivors of her crew have to find a way to escape from the aliens and warn Earth.
It's sort of Jonah or Moby-Dick meets Star Trek when a spaceship fishing for "quanta" loses its captain's son and they have to undertake a dangerous journey into hyperspace to save him. A good short story about fathers and sons.
