    Lieutenant Jacob Mercer likes fast motorcycles, faster women, and screamin' space fighters. As a reckless fighter jock in the Resistance fleet battling the Corsican Empire, he lives solely for the thrill of taking out as many Imperial bogeys as he can. A rebel victory is looming on the horizon when the Imperials abruptly change tactics and, in a surprising show of devastating force, incinerate the city of Dallas with a thermonuclear blast - killing millions - and delivering a merciless example of what happens to upstart worlds..

    Job Done!

    Captain Jacob Mercer and the USS Phoenix barely escape with their lives from the Imperial ambush at Liberty Station and soon find themselves orbiting the frontier world Destiny, a forbidding planet infested with pirate gangs. With critically unstable engines, Jake is forced to seek raw material for badly needed repairs before the ruthless Admiral Trajan tracks them down.

    Better and Better

    This is turning out to be a very good space opera and I look forward to the next instalment.

    Captain Jake Mercer and the crew of the Phoenix finally escape from Admiral Trajan's relentless pursuit, hoping for some much needed rest and supplies.

Jake must enlist the help of a local paramilitary organization to not only regain his ship, but also to fight off the Vikorhov Federation, one of Admiral Trajan's surrogates in the sector.

    A good listen

    This series keeps getting better, although I do wonder at the lack of judgement of the captain, Jake!

    That said, I listened to this in one si..Show More »
