Phoenix 300 takes place in the year 2150 where Earth is overpopulated and humans have migrated to space, living in harmony with the Zardoxian aliens. The show revolves around Aaron Coleman, a 15-year-old who moves to a spaceship called Phoenix 300 after his mom gets engaged to an alien.

As Aaron adjusts to life on Phoenix 300 with a new group of friends, the spaceship searches for a new habitable planet for humans and aliens to live in.
But, the spaceship is running out of resources. There’s a new selective system in place where all underage human residents who have arrived within the past 6 months have to apply for a visa at the age of 16 and pass an aptitude test in order to stay on Phoenix 300. Now Aaron has to work hard to keep his new life. Will he make it? ©2014, Paola Crespo
