{A Wattpad Featured Story}  Sam Sterling is the lone commander of a risky space mission.  Her task:  to take six prisoners to a remote asteroid, Externo, for a life sentence.  
  
But Sam's careful plan is disrupted when a meteoroid storm cripples her ship, and requires more than one person to repair.  To survive, Sam must free Dave--prisoner number six--to help repair the damage before it's too late.  With time running out and Externo looming, Sam must decide whether she can trust Dave's tale of innocence, or if her entire mission is a lie...

'if that IS your real name' always sounds a little comical to me.
I love the name 'Dave'. Its nice for such a dangerous person

I thought Dave was just a no talk lone wolf type pf prisoner until suddenly he was situated in a stasis frozen container. That's when I knew that i had to read more of this story. Great Intro and description !

It's an intriguing setup. Looking forward to more. (And just to confuse things in your comments -- I think you did it just right in flowing right into a scene with conflict/dialog without explaining.)
So the cells are taken from prisoner 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5 so they threw the 6th in the space? Mission passed + respect

Makes me a little worried about her mental state ... which is probably a good thing for the story. :)
