Unbelievably well executed story of humanity beginning to reach for the stars.
Ned is a jock pilot who knows what is truly important.
He makes the characters come alive. I feel like I'm standing in a room with them hearing them speak.
It evokes a feeling that we as humanity can truly do anything. It also is a refreshing look on the modern education system with a true grasp of the problems my generation is creating in the modern work force.
Sure, it was a fun story, I enjoyed it overall, but it was distracting to have the author incorrectly use physics. I'm not sure if it was intended to try to make the culture more primitive, but a race that lives underwater not understanding how pressure works. (The example is using a lower pressure inside the airlock to prevent things getting in.) Also, the whole time they have gravity on the ship. I could probably have ignored that except they use it in some of the fights.
I'm not sure, again, the story was good, but it was just hard to enjoy when errors kept popping up. I think the big thing would be having it reviewed before publishing.
