Four centuries have passed since the end of the alien invasion that almost destroyed humanity. The surviving races, human and alien, now live in peace as allies. But when a terrifying new enemy cuts a path of destruction through the Alliance, there seems little hope of resistance. The situation is desperate, and desperate measures are required. With reluctance, they agree to resurrect a hero from the past, Colonel Mitch Taylor.

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

An understanding of military service would help. A ship's captain (or commodore) does not spend time explaining his actions to his subordinates. Nor does he (or she) admonish his crew to pay attention to their duties.

Would you ever listen to anything by Nick S. Thomas again?

No

Which scene was your favorite?

I could only listen to about 10 minutes of this. Since I love scifi, I am normally very forgiving.
