I liked this book and story Its a good tale But, you must disregard a bunch of things scientific and or science fiction for it to be believable First, you have to believe that a spaceship as far away from the Earth as this ship was could be there without a ship s pilot captain and crew The ship in the story had only 3 people on board and none of them were pilots Then you have to believe that a ship could be sabotaged by someone pouring a substance on hatch seal Every space ship I have ever read about had all metal hatches that sealed metal to metal And in my opinion a rubber seal would very quickly deteriorate just from the cold of space Then you have to believe that the engineer could pilot a shuttle craft to the ground and then quickly learn the language of the native aliens Then you have to believe that the foods that the aliens ate would not make the

Great StandaloneIt s a great and quick read Same universe as the other novels but with no real major plot connections Overall it s the type of book perfect for an afternoon read This story was not at all what I thought it was going to be It reminded me very much of several of the old Star Trek Voyager or Next Generation episodes By no means was it bad It just wasn t great and wasn t my cuppa , as they say. I couldn t stop readingThis book reminded me of the old classic science fiction books I would read when I was young I really enjoyed it Reminded me of Andre Norton Wonderful reading experience Interesting scifi story with a couple twists and turnsThe writing was decent and the character development was pretty good It kept me interested to the end Not a hard core scifi book, about discovery and interactions between people of different worlds. Simplistic Fun Nice twist at the end.
