Neutronite didnt exist in large quantities, and there were no hyper-doors. Galpol was happy to go about the business of policing the Galaxy as it had done for thousands of years, but as their influence expanded, so did their need for officers and man-power. It became necessary to recruit students. Gradually, these became younger as training demands became more rigorous. Of course, cadets were secondary school students - not to be used in operational work. Well, that was the idea, but it was strange how police cases began to intrude into their studies. They began to practise real police work. Sometimes the kids could do things the senior officers couldnt - such as go undercover to deal with youth problems. For instance, there was this kid who knew how to make neutronite - a strange stuff that generated dark energy. Everything would have been fine if the Ganglions hadnt captured him and his father. Even Galpol knew that combining Ganglions and Neutronite was not a good recipe for peace in the cosmos. Things became even more convoluted when the Ganglions fell out with each other, and a radical faction siezed control of their kingdom. Suddenly, Galpol had to rescue Ganglias royal family. Could they ever become allies?About the AuthorGeoff was born in Jersey, then under German occupation, during World War II. Soon after the war, his family moved to Brisbane, Australia. He was educated at All Souls School, Charters Towers - a rather traditional boarding school after the English style. What knowledge one didnt learn through the ears was well and truly belted in through the rear end, complete with blood blisters. His first contact with the cane was for not running around a sports oval fast enough. He now prides himself on a complete disinterest on sports and knows nothing about cricket. This led to his creative and artistic sides developing. He had a way with words, and was a skilled debater.
