Not bad. Then again, the admiral in this series is getting less and less believable as a character. I suppose there's precedent for people like him, but his predilection for ignoring what's in front of his face is getting a bit extreme.
Enigma finally resolves the mystery behind Ulelo as an unknown alien force attacks the Federation, handily defeating any ship that stands in its path.

The book was okay, but I didn't really get into it. The plot felt weak to me.

I am just flying through these now.

This was another good one. Lots of action, an alien race stronger then the Federation.

The evil i had been referring to in other reviews is finally reveiled and it is not
what i thought. Nice.

On to the last one in the series.

InteresTing Book not the best but a Good read, and it was nice to see where the Ulelo story was heading. ..
Friedrich Haas
Loved the cover. I would rather have written the script to make this into an episode. It needed to be cut down and visual.
