Puk has also been ridiculed for not being able to hear, and not being able to fix it with cybernetics because of his family’s financial problems. Puck went to the same school as Dakota before he was also accepted into the SSA and has been known to be kind of a trouble maker. Puck wants to be able to do what he loves and explore the unknown, while Dakota just wants to find where he truly belongs. What happens when the two boys become roommates and cause absolute chaos during the Acceptance Ceremony. Not to mention that they end up in another galaxy and are told that they are an alien species salvation from their enemy.
