It is 2246, 10 years prior to the Battle at the Binary Stars, and an aggressive contagion is ravaging the food supplies of the remote Federation colony Tarsus IV and the 8,000 people who call it home. Distress signals have been sent, but any meaningful assistance is weeks away. Lieutenant Commander Gabriel Lorca and a small team assigned to a Starfleet monitoring outpost are caught up in the escalating crisis, and bear witness as the colony's governor, Adrian Kodos, employs an unimaginable solution in order to prevent mass starvation.

it's like if someone saw starship troopers and drunkenly was explaining it to a friend. Bugs, sensitive protagonist, cheesy military tropes, jock gf, super hot girl leaves said protagonist for "fleet" to be a lifer. I actually researched to see if the stories were related because this level of theft must be illegal?

Essentially the author's life story and an incessant pat on the back he gives himself for various achievements. The book is redundant and useless. "wake up early" there, I just saved you life and time you can't get back from reading this tedious rag. You're welcome
