About This Audible Original

B. V. Larson returns to the world of his Audible best-selling Star Force series for the first time in three years with this original, full-cast audio drama.

A new stand-alone space drama by B. V. Larson makes its debut in the wildly popular Star Force series with an extensive and stellar cast. When the Ancients, a mysterious alien race, vanished before Earth's last ice age, they left behind a highway of interconnected rings across the galaxy. Humanity knows how to use the highway, but not how to build any more rings, or alter the connection pattern between them.

Now the Imperial starship Pandora is on a mission to discover and explore new interstellar connection points. On Venus, they meet a rogue robot, Marvin, with a mission of his own to reconnect the rings into a new pattern. The result is pure pandemonium. Everything goes haywire. Grotesque aliens are coming through the ring, overrunning Pandora's base camp.

The good news? The aliens can be killed. The bad news: The aliens keep coming through the ring, and no one knows how to turn off the connection leading directly to their home world. But even if the aliens can be defeated—there’s still Marvin to contend with and his alternate agenda.

Starship Pandora is performed by:

Mark Boyett as Marvin and Gen. Kerr; Marc Vietor as Maj. Drake; Tim Gerard Reynolds as Dr. Blear; Scott Aiello as Capt. Stiles; Natalie Gold as Lt. Hersh; Jamie Jackson as Emperor Crow; Graeme Malcolm as Adm. Newcome.

With additional roles performed by Kevin T. Collins; Lauren Fortgang; Natasha Soudek; Jeena Yi; Gabriel Vaughan; Josh Hurley; Eddy Lee; and B. V. Larson.

Finally another Star Force story! It was excellent! Marvin made for a great major character and it was even nice to see Crow alive again, the thieving groundskeeper! Excellent audio production as well. It was like listening to a major motion picture!

great drama!

longed for a dramatization like this. good stuff! stepping out of Riggs's mind a second time was thrilling and enjoyable. I hope to see many more productions in the future.

Star Force is Back!

I reviewed this presentation under another account. I didn't realize I had downloaded it under my wife's account.
In any case here's a link to a full review: http://box5183.temp.domains/~notacuba/star-force-series-starship-pandora/

It's too long to post in here.

In any case, it was an excellent presentation. The cast was perfect. It was great revisiting old characters, and getting an explanation for things which weren't fully explain in the series...such as Crow's "enhancements".

My hope is that enough people will listen to his presentation and BV Larson will continue the Star Force series.

With Kyle though. I like Cody but you can't beat the original main character, Kyle Riggs, who is referenced quite a bit in this story.

un sure

Not sure I like this multi person book reading experiment. It's better than not having a book at all but I think I prefer the old narrator type style.

too short for the cost.

I feel like this was too little for the price. I could have cared less if it was a full cast. a single narrator is fine by me.

Love Star force but this format is not for me

Dislike all the sound effects/noise and unnecessary theme music. I feel like I'm listening to a movie; it lacks context which has to be deciphered from the sounds which is overlayed on the dialogue making both hard to hear.

oh how I wish it was longer.

I really love this series. That said, I really enjoyed the performance, style and the way it was created. Definitely need more!

Awesome cast and characters

Excellent cast and characters! Sound design was really fun too. I'm not usually one for sci-fi audio but found myself engaged and entertained with Starship Pandora.

Nicely done

This is an interesting full cast dramatisation which brings the strengths of the so familiar characters to life. Well worth a listen.

Wow!! It’s a full Audio show!!

Using characters and sound effects, this will bring you inside the star force universe like never before.
Also explains so much of what happened between starforce/empire clashes.
If you haven’t read any of the starforce series, this is a great place to start to get you attached to the characters. B V Larson and co have done a superb job! I’m going to reread the whole series again!!
Thank you unit 14!
