7. TROUBLE ON QUAHA 10

The Quaha 10 leader’s son is condemned to death.
Can Tony and Bea save him?

Man-eating quahacats run wild on Quaha 10 at night, so the people sleep in a town behind high walls.  There isn’t much room in the town, so children are given tests at the age of 12.  Those who fail are locked out of the town at night.  One of the tribe’s leaders is happy to do that – until his own son fails the tests.  Then he calls the Federation for help.  Tony and Bea are given the job.
