Young inventor Tyler Washburn was always getting into trouble due to his numerous failed projects. Early one morning when testing his newest invention, the "Automatic Locker Organizer v.2.0," Tyler could not help but be drawn into a closet with a strange blue glow where the touch of one star whisked him across the galaxy to join aliens at the STAR academy. Tyler finds acceptance for his creativity, talents and different beat at The Society of Technologically Advanced Races where he joins students from all over the universe to promote intergalactic peace.
