Recognizing a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to make first contact, Alex pulls off a daring maneuver to latch on to the derelict. Alex discovers the ship was attacked by an unknown craft, the first of its kind ever encountered. The mysterious silver ship's attack was both instant and deadly.

    Good, old fashioned SF reminiscent of Heinlein

    There's a simplicity and an innocence to the books in this series that reminds me of "Golden Age" science fiction. If you're looking for high..Show More »

    The surviving Méridiens have returned to Confederation space, aided by their recently discovered cousins, the New Terrans. They expect a celebration after their 71-year absence.

But Alex Racine and his crew didn't come this far to run away from humanity's enemy.

    The Méridiens are fleeing to their far colonies - and they have reason to run. Over the course of decades, they have lost hundreds of ships, billions of people, and seven Confederation colonies to an alien enemy: an advancing swarm of silver ships transported in the bowels of a gigantic, spherical vessel. Alex Racine, who once enjoyed the solitary life of an explorer-tug captain, is now an admiral and responsible for the lives of a quarter million Librans.

    Awesome.....

    The imagery, the characters, and the story come to life giving a one-time experience. Yum

    Nine years of tranquility came to an abrupt end when a Méridien starship entered the Hellébore system, sounding a dire warning for Alex Racine, the Haraken president. Unwanted visitors had arrived again. But this time, they're not alien; they're human. Claiming to have followed the course of a colony ship launched a millennium ago when Earth wrestled with resource wars and climate change, the mission commander, Antonio García, requests a meeting with the planet's leaders.

    Good SciFi story

    The story was very good. The main con is that there was too much about what Alex and Renee were doing together. Got tired of her always "curling up" ..Show More »

    One if the best series

    I cannot recommend these books enough. It has really well developed and interesting characters. Get them.
