Before long Joyce is tangled up in intragalactic intrigue as she finds herself with surprising new allies and abilities which put her at the centre of a conflict that could determine the future of the galaxy - not to mention Earth.

If Joyce and her new-found crew are to save the day, one thing's for sure: she can't just stick to her knitting anymore.
