The year is 2650. Seventy-five years ago, an alien fleet attacked Earth. Without warning. Without mercy. We were not prepared. Hundreds of millions perished. Dozens of cities burned. We nearly lost everything. Then the aliens abruptly left. We rebuilt. We armed ourselves. We swore: never again. But the aliens never came back. Until now. With overwhelming force the aliens have returned, striking deep into our territory, sending Earth into a panic.

Characters are very one dimensional and the narrative linear no parallel plot lines unless you count the Russian plot line which is not fleshed out enough.

In the 25th century, humans have conquered space. The advent of faster-than-light travel has opened up hundreds of habitable planets for colonization, and humans have exploited the virtually limitless space and resources for hundreds of years with impunity. So complacent have they become with the overabundance that armed conflict is a thing of the past, and their machines of war are obsolete and decrepit. What would happen if they were suddenly threatened by a terrifying new enemy?

A throw everything at them (them being Aliens) including the kitchen sink sci-fi drama involving a Captain with nothing to lose and a crew of missfits in an old but capable warship the Blue Jacket. It is immediate and uncontrived which is not something that can be said of the other space operas I have read or listened to over the past 10 years. Grim determination like My Stars My Destination.
