Starbound

This Sci-Fi family adventure brings together the flavor of a classic Swiss Family Robinson story together with a flavor of a Star Wars escapade in a high action space adventure.

This adventure begins with the United Mining Coalition Corporate Space Freighter, Mayflower, carrying thousand of families racing to secure to the red planet of Cryon. A competing freighter, the Nashita Corporation hot on their tail has secretly planted a saboteur aboard the Mayflower. The youngest of the Crusoe family, Tyler, and his friend witness the saboteur planting thermal bombs in the ship’s reactor room and the Mayflower explodes in a fury of fire. Tony Crusoe, head of the Crusoe family and the Mayflower security team is severely wounded in the explosion and his family find themselves marooned in a small escape pod. Katie, the Crusoe’s middle child and an experience simulator pilot valiantly flies the crippled ship to the water latten moon, Titus. Katie safely crash-lands the small pod on the beach of one of the small islands where the Crusoe family battles the elements and exotic creatures that inhabit the island. It is an eight-legged dog-like creature that saves the life of Tony’s wife, Dr. Julie Crusoe from the deadly saber-toothed, glowing red-eyed panther creature that convinces the family to adopt it and is named appropriately, Mr. Legs. After settling into their new tree house, fashioned after Tyler’s favorite story, Swiss Family Robinson, built among the island’s jungle trees, another ship crashes on the island and Michael, the Crusoe’s oldest son, and Katie take a homemade flying barge to investigate. Seemingly impossible, they discover another escape pod from the Mayflower carrying two children Violet and Bridget Jenkins who now join the family. S Soon after, Katie and Michael bring their father to a mysterious cave that they discovered containing a plentiful and valuable find, Gynomite which was the freighter’s original objective on Cryon. Yet another threat looms in the universe, ordered not to leave any witnesses behind by Nashita’s commander, the saboteur begins to search the galaxy for the survivors. A vicious attack from the saber-toothed creature threatens the Crusoe’s home and survival. In a nail-biting battle with the creatures, Tony and Mr. Legs return wounded yet victorious. The celebration is cut short by the saboteur and his small army where an exciting cat and mouse game now begins between space-aged one-man hovercrafts and the Katie’s homemade flying-barge through the thick jungle. After an exciting battle the Crusoe family turns the tables, defeats the saboteur and uses one of the Nashita’s battleships to escape from the Titus and race over to Cryon and claims it for the United Mining Coalition Corporate.
