Adventure, science, heroism and redemption intertwine in this illustrated, interstellar space opera by Matthew Medney and John Connelly. Medney joins Books on Tap Live for the launch of the first book in a planned ten-book series set in the Beyond Kuiper Universe.

In Beyond Kuiper: The Galactic Star Alliance, world-renowned astrophysicist Bernard William Hubert experiences a catastrophe of unimaginable proportions while visiting CERN, leaving him as the sole survivor. Stunned, the scientific community and the world look to Hubert for answers. He has only has one response. Aliens. This inconceivable explanation is dismissed, and Hubert is investigated, resulting in his being shunned by the scientific community. As the former Lead Scientist of the seminal space exploration company Outer Limits, Hubert is intent on proving his theory and develops a new company with the intention of designing an engine capable of interstellar travel to do just that.
