Publisher's Summary

Starship Victory is on its loneliest mission yet. Captain Maddox and his crew are thousands of light-years from Earth, searching for the dreaded Swarm Imperium.

But there are androids among them seeking to use the starship for hidden purposes.

Maddox and the crew are on their own, facing perils inside the ship and terrifying alien dangers outside in one of the remotest regions of the Orion Arm. Then they stumble upon the darkest secret of all. Unless the A.I. Galyan, Meta, Sergeant Riker and the others can help their beleaguered captain, Victory is doomed and Earth will never learn of the terrible threat gathering in the stellar darkness.

The Lost Patrol is the fifth book in the Lost Starship Series.

    "Good space novella with so many holes in the story"
    Would you listen to The Lost Patrol again? Why?

    No. I never listen to anything twice


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

    The crew could be less of a bunch of 10 year olds with their constant questioning of directives from the captain
    The captain is so self centered it can be annoying.
    The lack of common sense in parts of the story lines is a little annoying for example.
    The robots are often described as being very strong and heavy yet no one has thought to identify them with a scale?
    The enemy is often located a 1/2 light year away yet when the ship appears they immediately fire missile that fly less than light speed but will arrive in 30 hours?

    With all this I still enjoy the series and will buy the next book


    What about Mark Boyett’s performance did you like?

    Mark has a great range of voices


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Cringe mostly

    "Another great addition to the series"

    This story had a really interesting twist in it. For some this is a drawn out or slow paced series but I really enjoyed the pace and the details Vaughn puts into these stories. There characters are enjoyable and I look forward to the next book if one comes out.

    "Keep The Series Rolling"

    Great Continuation for a great series. The book answers many questions but does a masterful job in setting the stage for book six. All I can say is, "Bring it on".

    "Keeps getting better!"

    This is an excellent addition to an already outstanding series. The characters continue to grow, interesting new characters are introduced, and the plot continues to develop in interesting and unpredictable ways. An outstanding book, and I can't wait for the next one!
