Aurelia was a fifteen year old girl from a very advanced world. She'd passed Starship Building easily enough but she'd slept through most of Celestial Navigation. That was how she ended up on a little back-water dump like Earth where her advanced powers seemed like miracles. Some thought she was the Messiah. Some though she was the devil. No one was prepared for the truth.
