Along with new supplies, the supply ship brings some new residents to the base including a new girl Dash's age who he eventually befriends. Dash becomes convinced Dr. Holtz's death was foul play and begins an investigation into many suspects to solve the mystery. Each chapter opens with an excerpt from “The Official Residents' Guide to Moon Base Alpha” NASA's instructional guide to living on the moon.
