Getting Out of Trouble

Welcome to Tuesday Blog Share. Today, we’re talking about Canoples Investigations on Trial. Our beloved team gets into a bit of trouble when they agree to be interviewed by Sally Wild, intrepid reporter. BD, Cassie, Carl, and Terry call reporters vultures for a reason. They are the worst space creature they’ve ever encountered.

Just what about Sally Wild has the team jumping through space hoops to clear their name has happened? Why this woman took their responses to her questions and made them look like space ghouls. Even worse, the adjudicator for the Space Pirates is using that information to get those miscreants off the charges that will have them on Fomalhaut for the rest of their miserable lives. Just what can our heroes do to clear their name?


BD, Cassie, Carl, and Terry are back on the case—only this time it’s a case they have to solve fast. Turns out Sally Wild, intrepid reporter, has an agenda and it all has to do with making the C.I. team look bad before the Space Pirates trial. Can BD and crew prove they’re not making up stories and beat a clock that’s moving fast?


Our jaws are still hanging down near our knees. Me and my crew—Carl, Terry, and Cassie—can’t believe what just happened. Sally Wild made us look like fools, and we fell for it. Stupidly, we forgot every piece of advice that Chief Pelham has ever given us; ignored Wade, my older brother, about never giving an enemy an even chance; and stepped right into a trap.

“We’ll never live this down.” Terry drops his head into his hands. “Everyone will laugh us right off Canoples Station.”

He’s right and I can’t figure out a way to fix the mess that we’ve gotten into. Even though Chief Pelham promised us that the reporter from Inside Galaxy would never do anything to get her banned from covering the upcoming trial of the space pirates, she has. And she is still on the station. Worse, everyone else believes that she’s a poor, abused reporter rather than the Mercury tat she truly is.
