In the 22nd Century five regular 14 year olds attend Moonridge Academy, a boarding school on the Moon where Space Specialists are trained. For homework they capture dangerous and diverse Terrators on different planets using cool gadgets, turbo charged vehicles and radical moves which give rise to action-packed sequences with comic undertones.
It is the late 22nd century. Duke, Sam, Carl, Fay and No attend Moonridge Academy, a boarding school that has been set up on the Moon to train children in the complex art of Terrator capture. Terrators are the unstable and unpredictable destructive creatures who are the mutations of an exploded Space DNA Lab. An explosion so fierce that it hurtled their genetically engineered DNA throughout space. Our 5 heroes are regular 14 year olds who have gained a reputation for being the school's top team. To achieve their weekly Terrator-capturing homework they only have their Exoskels, their vehicles and their wits. But trouble lurks everywhere. They soon learn that only experience and teamwork can help them overcome the obstacles they face both inside and outside school. It's not easy to deal with the demands of Terrator hunting when you're also struggling with 0-Gravity Sports, having regular face-offs with evil Professor Asimov and being pressured by your parents to get better grades in Stellar Geography.

Alexander speaks four languages - Dutch, English, German and French. He's currently learning Lunan, but it's a touch one to crack since the grammar book is still 178 years from being published.
