Starship: Flagship | [Mike Resnick]

Starship: Flagship

The date is 1970 of the Galactic Era, almost 3,000 from now, and the Republic, created by the human race but not yet dominated by it, finds itself in an all-out war against the Teroni Federation, an alliance of races that resent Man's growing military and economic power. The rebel starship, the Theodore Roosevelt, under the command of Wilson Cole, is preparing to lead Cole's ragtag armada into the Republic, even though he is outnumbered thousands to one.

Publisher's Summary

The date is 1970 of the Galactic Era, almost 3,000 from now, and the Republic, created by the human race but not yet dominated by it, finds itself in an all-out war against the Teroni Federation, an alliance of races that resent Man's growing military and economic power. The rebel starship, the Theodore Roosevelt, under the command of Wilson Cole, is preparing to lead Cole's ragtag armada into the Republic, even though he is outnumbered thousands to one.

Cole is convinced that the government has become an arrogant and unfeeling political entity and must be overthrown. The trick is to avoid armed conflict with the vast array of ships, numbering in the millions, in the Republic's Navy. For a time, Cole's forces strike from cover and race off to safety, but he soon sees that is no way to conquer the mightiest political and military machine in the history of the galaxy. He realises that he must reach Deluros VIII, the headquarters world of the Republic (and of the race of Man), in order to have any effect on the government at all - but Deluros VIII is the best-protected world in the Republic.

But a new threat looms on the horizon. Cole, the Valkyrie, David Copperfield, Sharon Blacksmith, Jacovic, and the rest of the crew of the Teddy R face their greatest challenge yet, and the outcome will determine the fate of the entire galaxy.

Engage! Hear the rest of the Starship titles.

    "Sorry to see it End!!"

    Very rarely do you fine a saga that makes you want to just keep listening! Great Story, nice plot with Action and Drama. Charles Dickens is spining in his grave lol..That a side I wish there was another book.

    "Disappointment"

    An amazing series! Great characters, strong and thralling. But this installment failed to achieve the mark. The ending seemed to contrived and forced. Mike Resnick is a much better author then this. The entire book felt rushed!

    "I want more!"
    What made the experience of listening to Starship the most enjoyable?

    It tied together all the loose ends in a nice little package.


    What other book might you compare Starship to and why?

    Hmm, Elzabeth Moon's Vatta Series, or maybe touching on Jack Cambell Lost Fleet series, I also find a bit of the Destryermen in there sometimes as well!


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The first meeting with the Republic Leadership and the Admiral telling them to take a hike!


    Any additional comments?

    While I enjoyed the story and the series I think it finished just a little to abruptly. I can certainly see some spin off stories coming up but I still want more of the 'Teddy R' and Wilson along with Val and the others. I feel a little cheated at the end, but so often that happens!

    "Big fan of all the Starship books but this one."

    This book seems to be a rush job from beginning to end.

    "Good Not as good as the others"

    Well the first few books we real good. but the narrator did not do as good of a job on the voices. and this is one of my favorite ones. i even went back and listen to a bot of the previous books to make sure. the story was pretty good and i will listen to the next one.

    "Wilson Returns"

    Nice to revisit Wilson Cole and the crew of the TR. The story is just not a compelling as the previous.

    "Yawn"

    Love the series but the ending is a bit of a letdown. Expected a bit more to wrap it up after reading all these books.
