Publisher's Summary

If you are looking for epic space battles, if you are looking for generals achieving victory through genius tactics, if you are looking for berserker warriors carrying empires aloft on their swords, look elsewhere my friends. Here, you will find laughter. Here, a quartermaster must discover why the human insists that the mass produced broom, identical down to the molecule to every other broom on the base, is the "wrong" broom, and why and how they expect him to fix it. Here, aliens learn the meaning of "enough C4". Here, a medic meets the challenge of understanding why a human thinks it can survive on chocolate cake. Here, Monty Python meets Star Trek.

Interesting story ruined by narration

I am a fan of HFY stories, and I enjoyed reading this story, after the unedited narration made me put down the audiobook. It wasn’t the best, mostly about the communication and mundane difference between cultures. I was more hoping for a bit more humorous culture shock and aliens having issues grasping slang phrases and colloquialisms. The aliens seemed more a child than a researcher from an alien race.
The biggest issues with the narration is it sounds like the final proof read or a old TalkBoy recording from the early 90s. There is a constant electronic buzz.
Also there doesn’t seem to have any editing to dialogue, like one long take. There are periodic keystrokes can be heard, mispronounced and the following correction (E.G. start of chapter 11 Nike), and silences long enough to make me check of Audible was still playing.

Great stories!

These are some pretty good stories and I am glad I could listen to them all in 1 book. Even though I love to read, it can be hard to read some of the words from this story so I am glad I could listen to it while working.
