Ringo does Star Trek. Really.

While a sequal to Thru the Looking Glass, it is really a very different kind of story. Namely a spaceship - in this case a converted submarine - goes exploring the galaxy.

Unlike Star Trek the Captian and XO never leave the ship. Instead the Marines do the dirty work. We see navy life from the top and bottom.

While the body count is high eventually, I was shocked to be in a Ringo book and half way through with no one dying.

Very hard SF, and if you don't like physics mixed into your fiction it isn't for you.

Otherwise good book all around.
