Neumann, have expressed concern he is not up to the challenge. However, his unique mental abilities have proven essential to the defense of the United Planets in its fight against the Titan invaders.
My Thoughts onLieutenant Henry Gallant:
When we first meet Lieutenant Henry Gallant he is wounded but still fighting after the surprise attack on his ship. I felt like I was dropped into the middle of a book with that start but the next scene was days before the attack and everything fell in place. In spite of the exciting start the book is actually rather low key. Gallant is assigned to the unexpected human colony. His job is to get the supplies and help to repair the ship. There is the chance of a romance with Alaina Hepburn but duty comes first for both. There are some twists in the plot. The Ancient AI is not what it seems. Some people in the colony do not want the ship to get back to Earth. Gallant has to deal with sabotage on the planet and a Captain who is hard to work with. This is book #2 in the series but works well as a stand-alone.
