After completing the final instalment of what I can only describe as an old school space opera I feel a sense of anticlimax not experienced since civilisation vanquished the dark forces of Boskone; but anticlimax only in the sense of thats it! No more! I thoroughly enjoyed the series and feel genuine sadness that the journey alongside many diverse characters is at an end.
My comments really cover the whole series, not just the last episode. It had everything, a struggling band of flawed heroes fighting impossible odds, implacable enemies, a race against time, system spanning battles involving weapons of super science... There are clear influences from other works including some of my personal favourites such as E. E. Smith's Lensman series and Christopher Rowley's Starhammer books all of which I feel Vaughn Heppner has paid homage to.
I have no hesitation on recommending the Doomstar series to anyone who enjoys a good ripping yarn.
My only criticism SPOILER ALERT
I sort of hoped Osadar would meet up with Captain Mune, she deserves a break.
