Dr. Randy “Rad” Adam Daniels is 13 and he’s smarter than probably the whole crew of the Odyssey put together, including the onboard computer. Back home, he mastered every science he put his mind too and have advanced degrees in many of them.
After accomplishing all this, “Rad” still couldn’t get it out of his mind that it would be fun to be a spaceman. He applied for a position as chief engineer on board the Odyssey. The previous captain—Captain Buzz Sawyer—laughed when “Rad” showed up at the ship. He stopped laughing after Dr. Randy “Rad” Adam Daniels recalibrated the ship’s sensory array; increasing its reliability by over 500%.
