As a descendant of a legendary hero known for ending the greatest threat to the Universe, Lexia is granted ownership of her own vessel to travel between the stars. As captain, she forms an unlikely crew of misfits, refugees, and lost souls.

Just when she was getting comfortable with her new life, an ancient evil awakens. What can they do when confronted by what is thought to be an unstoppable force?

Their opponent is omnipotent. Victory against it is impossible. Their chances of survival, none.

Just another typical day for Captain Lexia and the crew of the Starship Sunfire.

Music often inspires scenes, helps mold the tone of a narrative, and in some cases, defines a character.


What follows is a collection of songs that are the soundtrack to this novel.

Lexia's Legacy 1.jpg

This is the opening for the first season of the Sunfire Chronicles as a television series. The opening credits of each season will reflect the changing cast of characters and allow for the opportunity to make numerous references to pop culture when it comes to science fiction and sci-fi, as well as introduce the characters.

The opening scene of the book was inspired by this song. The original draft of the book existed without the action-packed sequence that involved Lexia barely escaping a dangerous situation. When I listened to this, everything that was added to the introduction of the book played out in my mind.


This is Lexia's theme song. Nothing is impossible in her mind. She is the kind of person who will leap off a tall building and figure out how she's going to survive on the way down. She's fearless, determined, refusing to accept defeat, and always pushing herself to do the right thing no matter the risk.


Lexia is human. She didn't grow up in a human society. She's a single human among a group of aliens and androids. She's so accustomed to being around other species other than her own, that they are normal to her. She doesn't judge or discriminate, no matter what someone looks like, its who they are that matters.


This song inspired a "deleted" scenario that does not occur in the novel but would be ideal visually for a movie or television series based off the book. This will add to the experience for the visual representation of the book. Learn more about this new addition below under the "Bonus Scene" section of this page.

Lexia's Legacy : The Movie



Played by:

Zendaya is an actress that can reveal the subtle elements between Lexia's complex personality. She can embody the painful past, the playful humor, and the serious-minded leader. She can handle the physical demands of the role while expressing the depths of emotion that is Captain Lexia of the Starship Sunfire.



Played by:
Francesca Reale

Dryad is one of those characters that opens up a world of wonders for an actress in that the character is constantly developing, learning, and exploring new aspects of her personality as well as growing list of talents. Francesca has that wide eyed, innocent look to her that is ideal for this unique individual.



Played by:
Adam Rodriquez

He can be the action hero persona, but also portray a man who lets immediate concerns be like background noise that he ignores as he stays focused on the objective. He can show that yearning to be more emotional and expressive, but still show that reserved uncertainty that would fit Glen so well.



Played by:
Jim Beaver

Jim can play the gentle southern gentleman with a sense of humor. Combine this with his ability to be gruff, abrasive without being mean about it, that "tough love" mentality plays perfectly into the character's persona. That emotional depth of coping with a tragic past is where this actor will truly shine.



Played by:
Jim Parsons

Jim can portray the innocence and curiosity that this character is often motivated by. He can bring forth a genuine humanity to what would be a rigidly robotic role. He could play that fine line between being reserved and exploring emotional connections. Brent’s persona would play so well with this actor’s strengths.



Played by:
Vivienne Acheampong

Gold has been alive for thousands of years, bringing with her a relaxed, calm understanding of the Universe. Vivienne has that presence that I hope for Gold to bring to screen. Wise, comforting, gentle in her tone, a guide, a counselor, someone willing to say what is needed, and a powerful individual in a subdued, subtle way.



Avatar is a mysterious figure with a vast knowledge of the Universe who encounters Lexia early in her life as captain of the Sunfire. With his guidance, she is able to make alliances, meet new friends, and slowly grow the crew of her ship. His appearance of an elder human male hides the truth of his existence.



An artificial intelligence first created by Liam, captain of the Starship Parallax, was incorporated into the ship's computer system. Eventually, the AI is able to operate an android as an extension of itself. When Lexia becomes captain of her father's ship, she names the android Parallax before she renames it the Sunfire.

Bonus Scene: Not Found In Book

In a television presentation of Lexia's Legacy, after the conclusion of the first season of the television series, there is a bonus scene where there is Parallax, Lexia, Glen, and Tedorn sitting in the four seats of the control room. Then the music to Queen's Bohemian Rhapsody begins playing. Just like in the scene of Wayne's World set to that music, the four of them lip synch to that song. The twist? It's not in English or any Earth based language for that matter. They are doing the entire song with the lyrics replaced with a translation into the language spoken by Tedorn. It would be a fun, silly, over the top, but incredible way to close out the first season for our audience.

Hidden Author

Where would the Author make a cameo?

Stan Lee is notorious for making a cameo in movies and television series based off his written works. With that in mind, where would the author of this novel make an appearance in a visual adaptation of the book?

What better place for the author of the novel to appear than on board the U.S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701-D? Well... The ship that pays homage to that vessel, known as the Vostok. How cool would it be to catch the author as just one of the many nameless figures among the main command crew on the bridge? A dream fulfilled in having a chance to be on board this universe's version of this incredible starship.
