Ensign Andrew Dahl has just been assigned to the flagship Universal Union Capital Ship Intrepid It's a prestige posting, and life couldn't be better . . . until Andrew begins to pick up on the fact that:
- Every Away Mission involves some kind of lethal confrontation with alien forces.
- The ship's captain, its chief science officer and the handsome Lieutenant Kerensky always survive these confrontations.
- At least one low-ranked crew member is, sadly, always killed.
Not surprisingly, a great deal of energy below decks is expended on avoiding, at all costs, being assigned to an Away Mission. Then Andrew stumbles on information that completely transforms his and his colleagues' understanding of what the starship Intrepid really is . . . and offers them a crazy, high-risk chance to save their own lives.
an excellent idea and mostly well executed however the characters can come off as a little one dimensional and the ending is a little dissapointingPublished 6 days ago by Mr. Nathan Dodd

Engaging story about a crew on a space ship who discover that they are akin to 'Star Trek'. They aspire to do something about it before everybody gets killed. some swearing.Published 2 months ago by ellison
This book is a train wreck! Awfully written and an even worse plot; dull and just plain dire. Save yourself the money and pass on this bookPublished 2 months ago by James Rae
