Publisher's Summary

Science to build a starship. Wizardry to take it past light speed. A crew to give it a soul.

The Mobius is a cobbled-together ship with a matching crew. Captain Carl Ramsey is an ex-Earth Navy pilot whose crew won't let him fly his own ship. The pilot is his ex-wife, the mechanic is a drunk, and the chief of security is from a predatory species. Instead of a star-drive to travel through the astral space between worlds, the ship's wizard does it by hand.

Mission 1: Salvage Trouble

A salvage mission turns into a rescue, and no good deed goes unpunished. With two refugees onboard, the Mobius crew is hounded by bounty hunters, border patrols, and corporate enforcers.

Mission 2: A Smuggler's Conscience

"Don't open the package." It's the smuggler's credo for good reason. When the Mobius crew takes a peek at their illicit cargo, the entire job takes an about-face.

Mission 3: Poets and Piracy

The Mobius crew gets caught in a turf war between a pirate fleet and a galactic criminal syndicate. The trick is getting everyone out alive (and maybe getting paid in the process).

Mission 4: To Err is Azrin

Sometimes, you can't go home again. When a job takes the crew to their security chief's homeworld, she gets dragged into a familial power struggle. Can the rest of the crew bail her out of an old feud gone horribly wrong?

Pretty good

Yes, for those you remember the tv shows Fire Fly or Farscape then this book is for you. A large part was entertaining enough that I am buying the remainder in the series. The characters are flawed and the stories are just thrown together but that was the same with those tv shows.

Television in Book Form

Any additional comments?

A three star book, but one of those rare ones where it's not because it is mediocre, but because it's just a good, albeit forgettable book. "Formulaic and uninspired but well-crafted" is a good phrase for it.

Probably the best thing about it is that this is an omnibus of shorter stories. As such, no book/story outlives it's welcome. Each is much like a television episode, a self-contained story that you can choose to enjoy at your leisure or binge it.

The characters are a bit flat but overall fun. They are typical space fiction archetypes that are put in a new position in each "mission" and you get to watch them work out the problem of the week. The problems range from trying to outrun a much richer and more powerful enemy, to a bit of space pirate action, to learning one of the character's backstory.

I'd recommend this book to anyone who likes a lighter spaceship book (or show). It is an experience rather than some highbrow literature. I for one will continue the series.

probbaly better in small doses

interesting - but too "tv-show" for me. No one grows, or changes in the first 4 "missions" - much like a scripted TV show, everyone is exactly the same as they were at the start of the previous mission. No growth means not a lot of tension. Nice, but not great.

Probably one of the best SCIFI series I have read

What did you love best about Mission Pack 1?

This whole series is fantastic. I was a hardcore Firefly fan and this scratched that itch just fine.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Mission Pack 1?

Every moment. I can't even pick one item because I have listened to the entire series at least 4 times and read the books many times as well.

What about Mikael Naramore’s performance did you like?

Excellent voices. Some readers have voices that are distracting but not Naramore. I may seek out books read by him for this reason.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

In space, the wizard will never let you scream.

Any additional comments?

JS Morin has captured lightning in a bottle with this series. On par with Scalzi and Elizabeth Moon his writing never ceases to entertain me.

Fun adventure romps

I've grown to like this series. It has a crew of semi crazy never do wells up against a busybody of their own in various escapades. The setting is interesting and the dialog is fantastic.

Enjoyable adventures

Loveable crew of misfits, balanced with peril of jobs they take on that are less than respectable. Good world building around them with rules for travelling etc.

Narrator does great job with all the characters.

Surprisingly okay

Not a lot of trouble went in to world building. It just was. Humor and a little bit of smart. I enjoyed it

Star Wars or Farscape meets Firefly or Serenity

Star Wars or Farscape meets Firefly or Serenity and absolutely brilliant with characters that are complex but easy to like making you want to know more.
