The heavens await.
"My world, Lyapunov, has always had a... disagreeable relationship with our neighbour, Gran Manillo. Personally, I've never understood why, but politics was one of those things I always disliked and never paid attention to. It's just the way of the world and human nature, I suppose, always looking for things to be aggrieved over.
It is therefore with considerable surprise that I find myself, the daughter of one of Lyapunov's most powerful men, having to work alongside the first princess of Gran Manillo. It's a chance for us to iron over some of the bumps of the past, to maybe mend our worlds' relationships.
But it's also a chance for us to start an interstellar war, if we're not careful. My name's Yana Anisimova, and these next few weeks will be some of the most challenging of my life. But who knows... perhaps they'll also be some of the most enjoyable? We'll see."

One other girl also makes the decision to go along, causing some problems for those she leaves behind in the process...
