    It is the 24th Century and humanity is just gaining a toehold out among the stars. Stellar Survey Starship Magellan is exploring the New Eden system when they encounter two alien spacecraft. When the encounter is over, the score is one human scout ship and one alien aggressor destroyed. In exploring the wreck of the second alien ship, spacers discover a survivor with a fantastic story.

    Would you try another book from Michael McCollum and/or Ramon De Ocampo?

    I've listened to the 3 books in this series. I felt that the series could have been done in 2 books, maximum, but was dragged out to make it into three books. There is a lot of repetition and exposition in book 3 that is simply not needed. Other than this complaint, the story line was interesting and fairly well developed although not in a great deal of detail. Overall, I enjoyed the series until I reached the 3rd book which as I mentioned drags.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    condensed the series into 2 longer books


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    Yes

    Mars is supposed to be dead. Bizarre quakes are rumbling over the long-dormant tectonic plates of the planet, disrupting its trillion-dollar mining operations and driving scientists past the edges of theory and reason. However, when rocks shake off their ancient dust and begin to roll seemingly of their own volition carving canals as they converge to form a towering structure amid the ruddy terrain, Lt. Jain and her JSC team realize that their routine geological survey of a Martian cave system is anything but. The only clues they have stem from the emissions of a mysterious blue radiation, and a 300-year-old journal that is writing itself.

    I will start by saying I am not a fan of fantasy and never have been, I decided to give this book a shot since it was a mixture of hard science and fantasy. It did not work for me. I simply could not ever stop thinking the fantasy parts were unbelievable. I did listen to the whole book and ....as I said it is just not for me. I had just finished listening to The Martian which I loved and thought was excellent. To me, the hard science in The Martian was what made the book so good, and The Daedalus Incident suffered in comparison. If you like fantasy, I could see liking this story. For me it was an interesting experiment which failed.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Gibraltar Earth


    Which scene was your favorite?

    none, didn't like the book
