An accurate and fair review. I might add that the author seems to be unaware of recent politics and history... a Soviet Alliance in the future? Really?
The grammar and spelling mistakes are annoying. The unnecessary commas are infuriating because they disrupt the flow of sentences and confuse the reader. Also, the storyline is just a little predictable. Of course the occupant of the escape pod would be a young human woman... Captain James T. Kirk, step forward!
Aside from that, it's a half-decent story, and I may well buy the sequel - provided the author stops letting himself down with his poor language skills.
