Daniel is an Unwanted. Unlike the clone captains, his missions are menial. Until he's in the right place at the right time. No one else is close enough.

All Daniel has ever wanted is to fit in. However, being an Unwanted makes him at the bottom of the food chain. Clones despise the Unwanted, because the clones are the best of the best, genetically--that's why they were chos

Our hero is captain of a starship, but no one takes him seriously until he becomes the wrong man in the right place and they have to use him.

This is book one of the series, so a fine place to start.

This is something of a space opera, but definitely more on the humorous side than the serious. The story is fairly well written, but kind of repetitive, making the same points multiple times. The characters are different and distinct, but they also are lacking in the depth needed to make them truly li

"Ghost Probe" is a classic sci-fi adventure with an interesting twist. When a strange radio signal is detected in deep space, the president needs his finest officers to check it out. Unfortunately, the closest vessel is a lowly asteroid miner staffed with a ragtag crew of misfits.

The leader of this crew is Captain Daniel, an "Unwanted." In Price's future, the rigors of space travel are reserved for two sets of people. Clones of the best and brightest officers, and the products of unplanned pregn

A story of a space captain in the minority, an Unwanted, trying to prove himself so he can rank up to fully explore space and not just be a space miner – all with a ragtag group of fellow Unwanteds and misfit clones in his fleet.
Honestly, I started this book and kind of assumed I would hate it because of the corny jokes and pop culture references…those never work well for me. But as the story went on and I saw that these dad jokes are part of what make the character of Daniel, I started to have

Review: GHOST PROBE by Craig A. Price Jr.

GHOST PROBE is Volume 1 of THE SPACE GHOST ADVENTURES. A too light-hearted Space Opera with rather juvenile humor, GHOST PROBE is the story of an exploratory spaceship, captained and crewed by the “Different” (not cloned). Usually tasked with asteroid mining, Captain Daniel just wants to finally discover alien life. How he does is really a surprise twist.

Captain Daniel is finally being allowed to explore planets with his crew. This book reminds me of Piers Anthony’s books, however instead of puns he uses short pithy expressions and catch phrases. I like when the author has the characters saying they are not in a book or they are not a writer. Lots of humour. Captain Daniel gets into lots of trouble and has to find a way out. This was a fun read into a new universe.

This book is so much fun. full of puns, TV sci-fi references and a crew of misfits. When the captain says "we are all idiots" he's not kidding. The writing is wonderful with a great sense of humour, lovely one-liners. I am looking forward to the sequel.
I received a free copy in exchange for an honest review

The story line line sounded good but the book is silly and riddled with errors (habitual planets instead of habitable planets). Daniel is the worst captain of a spaceship ever. I couldn’t finish this book. Sorry.

Just terrible

Far leftist ultraliberal political and pro-drug agenda. That can be excused (no it can’t but we’ll all pretend it can), but the humor can’t rightly be considered humorous and that’s why I quit reading it. I’m not sure how this author made a best-selling novel.

Loved this short but intriguing story. Daniel is an Unwanted but perhaps not for long. Don’t miss out.

To boldly go where no man has gone before.
Daniel is chosen, to explore an unknown sector of space because he is the only one close by. The crew of the Ghost, will prove themselves more than worthy of the challenge to discover a new sector of space. Characters and personalities like the 'Orville's' crew. Looking forward to the next book.
