Be careful what you wish for...you might get it.
When downsized astronaut candidate Scott Cherella is offered a chance to go into space, he doesn't hesitate. He just has to pretend to be an Alliance of Planets starship captain. The moment he's beamed aboard, his lifelong dream becomes a nightmare. Sabotage erupts. To save the ship and crew, he has to depend on an uptight, disapproving colleague.
Although Veronese Qilana fears the smart-aleck Scott will never be able to pull off the switch, she must protect his real identity, a Terran masquerading as the starship's captain. Besides owing the real captain a debt of gratitude, she has her own ghosts and guilt to deal with. They must work together to uncover the saboteur and get the crew home. In doing so, they discover that opposites really do attract.
