The Lost Command (Lost Starship Series) (Volume 2)

Earth needs a miracle. Out of the Beyond invade the New Men, stronger, faster and smarter than the old. Star Watch sends a massed battle fleet to stop them. It’s a disaster. Admiral Fletcher barely escapes annihilation by heading at sub-light speed for a nearby star system. His battered ships are running out of food, fuel and missiles. He knows the New Men will use jump gates, waiting for him six months from now at his destination. Star Watch Command frantically searches for a way to rescue the vessels. Earth has an ancient alien starship in the Oort cloud, with a suspicious AI refusing to cooperate with the scientists. The vessel has powerful weapons—if anyone could figure out how to make them work after ten thousand years. Star Watch summons Captain Maddox, an unorthodox Intelligence officer who makes things happen. He is given command of Victory and told to fix the ancient weapons, rescue Fletcher’s ships and help them battle home again.

  1. A thoughtful and entertaining addition to the series. Much better than the first book of the series, ‘The Lost Command’ adds more background to Captain Maddox and the ship’s AI, as well as the burgeoning romance with Meta. We finally get to meet Dr. Ludendorff (I must be just as smart as him because I figured out the ships AIs problem before he came aboard) and he gets some of the ships problems fixed. 

  2. A lot of fun Why five stars? Sometimes the fun supersedes objective elements one could apply to rate a book.I found a few typos, somethings the author could do better, the end is an example, but his ideas and his execution made a very entertaining story that I think is way above average. Can’t wait for the next one…
