The Orphans and the Passage Through Time - Michael Beilke

That's it, done.

 

I hope everyone gets captured and eaten by the Garunga (or whoever the hell they are).

Or caught and squashed in a massive backlash from the wormhole (or whatever it is).

Or maybe all the suns in the area will go supernova at the same time and put them all out of my misery.

 

If it was tightened up a bit it might make a nice middle grade science fiction space adventure, but even then I think it might just be way too simplistic.
