Publisher's Summary

The best-selling military space opera: the complete series in one box set.

Captain Keyes is loved by the public but hated by Command. He captains the UHS Providence, an aging supercarrier and the last human ship not dependent on dark tech - technology humanity has used to rule over the galaxy since barely defeating the Ixa in the First Galactic War.

Dominance has come at a cost. Over the decades, old allies have grown resentful, and when dark tech itself fails, Captain Keyes’ predictions start coming true: those old allies are now enemies.

But Keyes is not the only one proven right. As the galaxy plunges into war, the Ixan Prophecies are being fulfilled, one by one. Humanity’s oldest enemy is on the rise, with weaponry never seen before.

The fate of the galaxy now depends on Captain Keyes, his tired ship, and his oddball crew. It doesn’t pay to be right.

Box set contains:

  1. Supercarrier
  2. Juggernaut
  3. Reckoning

Captivating

Scott Bartlett's Supercarrier Box Set: The Complete Ixan Prophecies Trilogy had the three components of what I consider a captivating series - character development, a plot that intrigues and develops naturally, and something that can be difficult for many writers, a dialog between characters that doesn't seem unnatural or flat. There is depth to this book. Congratulations Scott!

Very poorly written Draft

How did these book get published. This was the worst sci-fi space story I’ve ever read... the story line doesn’t make sense, there’s terrible development of events and the only reason I listened to whole thing was hoping there might be some good writing somewhere in book 3 but there wasn’t and you can’t get a refund on audible for a shitty story.... I’ve got roughly 200 audible boooks and this is by far the worst one I’ve ever wasted a credit on. Scott Bartlett you may enjoy writing but your work is so poor compared to Craig Alanson and so many others that know how to entertain an audience... either learn from him and others that can write much better than you or don’t write.

Wow

I’m so impressed with this book series. Each chapter kept me on the edge of my seat. Each character in the book was fully fleshed out with their own motivations. The narration was perfect, and enhanced the experience. I loved it and would recommend this book to anyone! I received a free copy of this book in return for an honest review.

Awesome Space Opera

Scott Bartlett does an amazing job at world building and fleshing out the universe this takes place in. The story is fast paced and good from beginning to the end. The Narration from Mark Boyett compliments the book well and keeps you thoroughly entertained. I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

A Wild Ride

Take a wild ride through this military science fiction trilogy. “Supercarrier” has it all and will keep you on the edge of your seat to the very end. The story runs at a breakneck pace twisting and turning like a roller coaster and the characters are brought to life keeping you engaged and caring about what happens to them. The narration by Mark Boyett is bang on breathing life into all the characters. I thoroughly enjoyed this series and can’t wait to start on the next one.

overall good story

Interesting storyline. At times the politics in the story get exasperating, but that's what extreme political polarization is like too. its interesting to see the authors take on the nature of civilization and politics, and for a story to show an advanced civilization so divided. Patiently waiting for more.

Great Series!

So I consume a lot of audio books. I am always on the lookout for a new box set. I hadn't heard of this author before but the series sounded interesting. It was great. Great characters, both the flawed humans and flawed aliens. Mr. Bartlett has created a very cool universe as he takes us for a ride. I am also always impressed when an author does such great work while remaining clean. To me, this is a sign of a great writer. I also was not aware of the narrator's work before this series. Mr. Boyett ranks up there with Jefferson Mays and Bronson Pinchot for being able to create unique voices for each character and switch between them flawlessly. I now have a new author and a new narrator to follow.

Well Done Story !!!

I was very impressed by Mark Boyett’s narration that brought the characters and the action to life in this exciting space opera series. I am especially pleased at having the complete series to listen to and enjoy non-stop! I think that if you appreciate good science-fiction, this series will be very satisfying! The writer is skilled at his craft, which will be immediately noted in the fast and sustained pace from beginning to end. This story line will draw the listener deep into the book. It is very well done, fabulously narrated, and won’t fail to leave a lasting impression.

one dimensional is all aspects

Couldn't get more than half way through the first book, probably the worst space story I've ever heard. no nuance, no shade, all binary choices and thinking. avoid.

A rambling yarn

I've downloaded a few of these expansive and generally multi-part sci-fi epics and this one is better than many in concept and scope. You don't have to concentrate too hard, so they're good for insomnia or long journeys! However, the main issue I have with many of this genre, and this one is no exception, is that they routinely seem to default to a US-Marine-based shoot-em-up in which the outer space location is largely irrelevant and the story could be transposed to Vietnam/Iraq/France etc etc in more recent times... There's lots of aerial dog fighting too, slotted in between the recurrent Marine gun action. The more thoughtful narrative bits about science, exploration or origin or even galactic politics and associated machinations are much more varied and, I found, much more interesting for that. I actually eventually started skipping through some of the fighty bits of this title to get to chapters that had a bit less gun action and more substance, and a slightly less predictable narrative thread. Let's fervently hope that this vision of a constantly warring, militarised galactic travelling future isn't how it actually turns out if the human race ever does make it to the stars!

very slow, with some big plot jumps. I'm afraid that I dumped it before finishing book 1.

Great value, great trilogy - 5 Stars

Scott Bartlett has done us all a favour by releasing this on Audible, its the box set including his books Supercarier, Juggernaut and Reckoning so you're saving credits on buying each individual book and also not having to worry about pesky cliffhangers in between books, so thanks Scott! These three books make up the Ixan Prophecies trilogy. I discovered Scott's books after reading Spacers and was glad to find that he had quite the back catalogue of books for me to catch up on and so I started here. It's a military sci-fi space opera, which I am discovering is quite a large genre and I am very much getting into this niche. The book introduces us to Captain Keyes and his Supercarier the Providence which is old school tech in an advanced 'dark' tech universe. Were also introduced to Vin Husher who after being demoted from captain of his own ship is sent to the Providence as penance for insubordination. Husher makes the best of it and learns from Keyes who is shaping up to be his mentor. Were also introduced to various other characters and several species of alien to help build the universe that this book takes place in. The Ixan Prophecies referenced in the subtitle is a literal set of Prophecies set out by the Ixans who are a race of aliens whom fought the other sentient races in the first galactic war. And as the Prophecies start coming to pass our heroes must attempt to avoid war with pretty much everyone else whilst stopping the Prophecies from coming true. The book(s) spans a lot of time and space and there are plenty of action packed space battles as well as some ground based manouvers. As I was listening I was struck with how well Bartlett has done to keep each fight fresh and engaging. The narrator is Mark Boyett who does an excellent job of reading the story and doing the voices for different characters. When I first heard the voice of the character Fesky I wasn't sold and listening to that voice out of context it sounds crazy but it soon grew on me and by the end of the book it fits the character perfectly. You'll understand what I mean when you listen. I don't really want to say too much more and give away the plot, it's 26+ hours in total so should last you a while whilst commuting, working out or cleaning or whatever you do whilst listening. For a single audible credit I can't think of much better value for a book! I really enjoyed the trilogy and am going straight from here to Scotts Mech Wars series which is sort of a semi sequel.

Fly Phoenix

Its been a long time coming and well worth the wait. It comes as no surprise that its humanity against the universe. However, I found Husher's naivety to be frustrating at times. Supercarrier is one of those easy to listen to military sci-fi books that packs a punch and was well worth my credit: All the more so because narration, as always, by Mark Boyett, was first class.

A complex story

I recieved a review copy of this book. It presents an excellent story following a chaotic multisided conflict, and the struggle against seemingly impossible odds. The narration is excellent and there is significant depth to the story. My only disappointment is that it was difficult to visualise the scale of the space battles from the descriptions in the book.

Good if you're a teenager or early twenties

Forget it if you're not. 2D characters, multiple deus-ex-machina, every sci-fi trope you can think of and then some. I'd have loved this four decades ago, but now I couldn't even finish the first book. Despite that, the narrator does a good job of keeping the character voices separate.

not my cup of tea

I got bored with this book (these books) after an hour, the story lacked interesting characters, and the storyline was the same as many of its genre, no recommendation from me.

Just Silly

Peopled by childish characters who continually make foolish decisions, this story has a plot that makes even less sense. I found myself sympathising with the bad guys simply because the heroes were such jerks. I thought this was quite frustrating to listen to. The narrator was very good, as usual.
