This is a writing sample from Scripted writer Mandy Gardner
Now that he's fully trained for planetary colonization, Zed Walker is eager to use his skills, and be the leader his colony needs. Despite his diligence, Zed soon learns that no amount of training could have prepared him for life's challenges on this purple planet. New people, strange places, and alien life will force Zed to examine his own moral code, and what it means to live a life fulfilled.
