Publisher's Summary

While scavenging in the desert, Jansi stumbles across PIM, a stelcorp starship, embedded in the sand. PIM is damaged and needs the boy's help, but Jansi has never encountered a starship before, much less one capable of thought and expression. Together they forge an unlikely friendship, until a Stelcorp shuttle arrives, threatening PIM with destruction. For the boy and the starship, there will be no future unless they triumph against the galaxy's mightiest force.

Critic Reviews

"What if a primitive young nomad met a superintelligent computer in the middle of nowhere? That's what happens to Jansi, a scavenger who runs across a damaged Stelcorp starship in the desert and slowly forms a mutually advantageous friendship with the ship's computer, PIM. Simon Oats uses mechanical enhancement to voice PIM and gives Jansi's wild and fearful side full play as he brings this oddest of odd couples to life. The story tackles themes like the nature of communication in such a believable way, it's no wonder it won Australia's Children's Book Council Book of the Year for Older Readers Award in 1998."
