Benny Love's trip to the moon was supposed to be two weeks of driving out-of-this-world Space Runners and exploring the moon's surface. It wasn't supposed to include the start of a war between humans and the Alpha Maraudi, a group of aliens intent on destroying Earth. Stranded on the moon, Benny and his friends make contact with a peaceful Alpha Maraudi general. After getting to know the aliens, Benny can't imagine sitting by and letting the war continue. It's up to Benny and the Moon Platoon to help the humans and the aliens come to an understanding, one that won't mean the destruction of their home planet, or of the entire Alpha Maraudi population.
