George Moffat, fresh from the Training Center of the Frontier Patrol has arrived on the desolate plains of Planet Ooglach to start his practical training assignment. Putting him through this severe test will be the Senior Constable of the Frontier Patrol—Old Keno Martin. The trainee starts full of confidence and in high spirits adopting a condescending attitude to the “old man,” only to find his confidence in his abilities to keep up the grueling pace waning fast.
George’s first assignment—tracking down a murdering, illegal export gang—is almost his last. But, after enduring the extreme cold and heat of the rugged planet he helps save the day, and in the process discovers how come Old Keno has wasted the last several trainees that were sent to him.
