In the far future, Captain Mikhail Volkhov of the Svoboda, his brother Turk who is and commands the Reds on the ship, ----- people designed as super- warriors, but Mikhail is the clone of Peter the Great and will be Tsar of New Russia -- are ordered to discover what happened to the ship Fenrir, which disappeared, and has reappeared encased in coral.

They wind up in Saragasso, a sea without a planet, where ships go when they can’t or don‘t make their jump. Time, physics and many other things don‘t work quite right here.

Turk meets Paige who runs a fishing boat with many family members and is an amazing linguist and translator. She makes Turk feel like the man he is. Mikhail, who‘s lost a lot of ship, his crew, he thinks Turk, was never terribly sane and takes a bad turn.

A very unusual first contact novel, space exploration, military sf, character-driven hard science fiction. A mix of things that are rarely successfully mixed, but this is a keeper.
