Product Description

William Weaver and SEAL Chief Miller are back with a new ship. The former SSBN "Nebraska" has been converted into a warp ship. But the people who are really going to bear the brunt are the poor Security guys, Force Recon Marines, who are kept in the dark and fed manure all day.

This brought back memories of my first E.E.Doc Smith reads years ago when I first began reading Sci - Fi, the explanation of the Science at the end of the book is a revelation I just wish I'd read it first!
I can't help but like the idea of a submarine belting through space solving knarly quantum physics problems yet still taking the time to meet and kill dangerous if somewhat innocent alien life forms. Still if a lifeform chooses to eat first and not bother to ask questions later it deserves the maximum application of fire power with extreme prejudice.
Alot is packed in with plenty o of science, action, casualties, new alien life forms,weapons and even a little teaser running through the whole book. What's not to like

Ringo gets your blood boiling for the right reasons! Another great story in a well thought out universe, taylor adds a solid science feel to the narrative with believable physics and a grounded cadre of on board science officers. The 'vorpal blade' herself feels like a craft that humanity could build with just a few scientific breakthroughs!
As for the people? You will love 'two gun' bergerstresser! He is just the kind of enthusiastic intelligent and courageous soldier that make this genre a must for any scifi fan

As one of the reviews has stated, the tone if not the tech remind me of the excellent old school Doc Smith Skylark series of the 20s. This is both a fun read, Space Marines in exo-armour suits, & fairly educational with Dr. Taylor providing a scientific milieu which touches on everything from the bio-sciences to the high-end quarks with a special mention of the mechanism of "ID Ten T decontaminant". I found, for this type of novel, the characterisation good, with the distinctive personalities of the crew being one of the key factors of the ship's voyage.
