Publisher's Summary

In the wake of Earth's collapse into chaos, Captain Hoshiko Stuart made the mistake of speaking her mind - and was exiled six months from Sol to a naval base in an unexplored and uncontacted sector. Placed in command of a single squadron of starships, she expected nothing but boredom.

But when she discovers an alien race threatening to exterminate all other races within the sector, Hoshiko and her squadron are drawn into a war to stop them, even if it means forging an alliance with aliens who may themselves become a threat to humanity and building an empire that may alienate her from her family once and for all.

The Black Sheep is the third stand-alone book in A Learning Experience.

    "A thinking group of stories"

    Interesting view of the future but you can't expect everyone to play by the rules there will always be someone who breaks the rules, and then you will need laws to stop them.

    Story
    "UFP, Red Alert, Engage..."

    Somebody is obviously a Star Trek fan (Like me).
    While the stories have a lot of political commentary, they are still a good read. The obvious references to Star Trek were fun and added some inside joke humor that I enjoyed. The third book in the series was as good as, if not better than, the first.

    PS: what's the deal about calling it the Teleporter rather than the Transporter?

    "interesting byplays"

    Not only a good story, but the chapter replays show what this country may come too. Another civil war.

    "Fun Book"

    An imaginative and fun series that cleaves closely to standard military sci-fi tropes. Could have done without the political narrative. Don't agree with the point of view and hear enough about politics on a daily basis without wanting to dive back into them in my recreational reading.

    Story
    "Setting up the legacy and....sequels?"

    it is always nice to get a follow-up to a time spanning series. Better still to get a follow up without a cliffhanger ending. This story addresses that ever present question one has after reading a multi book series of "what happened next?". It is a very expanded epilogue of sorts. Christian Rummel does an excellent job as usual narrating and imparting distinctive voices to the characters.

    "I enjoyed it!"

    I enjoyed the story, the narration was smooth and while some of the sub plots or explanations of sexual deviance were a little over done in my opinion, I thought it is an excellent saga thus far.

    "Fun Finish to the Trilogy"

    Plenty of space battles and even an awkward romance though the book could have done without that.

    Story
    "A good continuation of the series"
    Any additional comments?

    I usually don't like when series jump ahead in time and change characters, But this author does this well in this series. He puts a rather junior captain in a spot where she has no support of of higher command. She also has to small of a fleet for what she runs into and has to make a bunch of way out there calls, some how this turns out ok. So for this rather generic plot, CR pulls off and makes this a good story. I hope he puts out another book there is a big universe that hasn't really been expanded on in this series. Allot of places left to go in a verse that has been set up rather well.

    "fantastic"

    Christopher G Nuttall is fast lyrics becoming one of my favourite science fiction authors. Everything I have read or listened to that he has written is absolute gold. Keep up the good work.

    "A good conclusion"

    Probably the least engaging of the trilogy but still a great listen. At times it felt a little predictable unlike most of his books but still moved at a decent pace and concludes the story
