After overhearing that her parents plan to send her away to boarding school, Nico goes in search of her aunt Ruth, a famous scientist who has a life she can only dream of. Nico climbs aboard her ship, Anthos to take a quick look. Then the ship moves, and Nico is still on it. If she is to stay on the great ship destined for voyage and discovery, she must help her aunt with important research. But there are male scientists on their tail. With the help of cabin boy, Matteo, and a kitten called Astra, can Nico outsmart them? Can Nico guide Anthos to victory – can she change the world?
