Priscilla Hutchins has been through many experiences.
This is the story of her first unforgettable adventure…
Priscilla “Hutch” Hutchins has finally completed a nerve-bending qualification flight for her pilot’s license.

With low demand for space pilots, Priscilla finds a job on the bridge of an interstellar ship, working for the corporation that is responsible for the terraforming.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Hutch-Academy prequel! This was a pure joy to read! Thank you, Mr. McDevitt, for painting the scenery so beautifully again. I really enjoyed this look back at the early days of our dear Hutch, as you wove your masterful storytelling with serious issues. While I missed seeing your short story "Cat's Pajamas" mixed in, I was glad for your references to it. The first book of yours I read was "Omega," then I was hooked! Since then, I've tracked down all your novels. Thank you for all that quality "thinker" sci-fi!
