Martian Ms. Podkayne Fries thinks that Earth isn't fit for habitation and has one goal--to be the first female starship captain. Paddy jumps at the chance to accompany her uncle on a trip to Earth via Venus in order to pump the brains of starship officers. What Paddy doesn't know is that there's more to her uncle's mission than she sees--including danger for them all.

But she’s about to learn some things about war and peace, because Uncle Tom, the Ambassador Plenipotentiary from Mars to the Three Planets Conference, is traveling not quite incognito enough — and certain parties will stop at nothing to sabotage negotiations between the three worlds...
