No one goes into media-tie-in books expecting great literature. You read them because you miss characters from the show. And since the author was one of the first writers for the show, I expected this book to be true to the show and fun. Alas. This book managed to weave all three sins of bad writing into one book: The info-dump, the head-hopping, and the lack of continuity with the series.

Thus, I was bored and annoyed. I HATE head-hopping. One POV per scene, please! But the last- contradicting
This was a fun book based on the Andromeda television series (but in an alternate timeline, near as I can tell). I enjoyed reading it, but it showed me that the ability to craft a tight, moving script does not necessarily translate to an ability to write smooth, polished prose. There were some technical/stylistic issues surrounding tense shifts that kept throwing me out of the story, and I'm fairly certain they were due to the inherent differences between scriptwriting and normal prose.
