So if you’re a pair of outlaw senior citizens in the 22nd Century, and after years of loneliness you fall in love all over again, what do you do? You could go on an interplanetary honeymoon to Mars, get yourselves rejuvenated on the side, and try not to get arrested -- or killed.
Meanwhile, your kids back on Ceres are leading a Space Scouts expedition to a strange new planetoid, where a troubled youth from Terra learns a valuable lesson.
The thrilling adventures of life in the belt continue in volume 3.1 of ESCAPE FROM TERRA!

EFT v2.4 Now @ DriveThru!
They say history repeats itself. Though 200 years separate them, similar events can unfold in similar ways. And that’s what happens to the Cerereans as they once again must face a military challenge from Terra’s United World government.

Medium shot of Ed, with the Hotel Cafe area sort of over his shoulder and to one side of him. We can see a very agitated-looking Rhonda among the soldiers there, all watching him.
Caption: Finally, Rhonda's increasingly obvious agitation forced him to zero in on his target.
Ed casually saunters up to the Target, who is looking confused.
Ed: Hi, friend, you look lost.
Ed: Let me help you find what you're looking for.
Target: I â€¦
