Army Specialist Bobby Ty considers her deployment to be all fun and games. That is, until an in-development armor prototype goes missing and she's accused of stealing it. She denies having any involvement, but it's hard to plead her case when it winds up on her wrist hours later. Her protests of innocence are short lived, though, when her base is attacked by unknown assailants. During the indirect fire, she falls into a space craft that appeared after the crust ruptured.  Upon awaken she finds herself in a new place with a new dominant species in charge.
      
      A species that does not like her claim to humanity. A species that states Earth is a creation myth, legend, believed by fools. They go so far as to denounce her claim of humanity and lock her up on grounds of insanity.
      
      Through the midst of her confusion and befuddled state, a Universe-wide war threatens to be the end of her before she can manage her way back home. It is here, fighting to stay alive in jail and battle, that Ty realizes she is more than just a lost space traveler with unfortunate luck. There's a bigger strategy at work, where the fate of the Earth and the Universe, rest on the shoulders of Bobby Ty, a human out of time, and that strange prototype with a mind of its own.

riddled the land, some close enough to feel the heat from the devilish weapons.
With the word prototype, this is my kind of story. Reading on!
Just a suggestion: have you thought about making this chapter 1 and sprinkling the info from the original chapter 1 across the book, leaving us in mystery?

Question: if this prototype's existence is Top Secret, would everyone know it's missing?

                              "...I had sought out a restroom,  a real restroom[,] after sweating in my body armor all day."
                              Because "a real restroom" is an extra modifier it's an appositive and therefore should be enclosed in commas, which was why I added one.
 #NBR why is this significant? "We were a male and female duo, alone in broad daylight." Can you expand that or give me as the reader  more  information?
