    Zack Quick has been on the move for 10 years, hacking big corporations and exposing their secrets. Then he stumbles upon one of the biggest discoveries that will forever change the world - and possibly get him killed. Kaylan Farrow is the pilot for Earth's most advanced spaceship, whose maiden voyage is supposed to take her crew to Titan, but newly released images from a deep space probe threaten to cancel the mission.

    Good Listen

    Once I got into the storyline, there was no looking back. This is promising to be a very good series.

    Narration was pretty good too.

    After initial contact with an alien entity leaves Kaylan unconscious, she wakes up to discover that she's now in command of the Athena mission stranded in a star system far from Earth. The ship's computer is malfunctioning, and former hacker and astronaut trainee Zack Quick is the only one who can fix it. If he can't figure out what's wrong, they have no hope of getting back home. In order to survive, the crew of the Athena must explore an alien star system to find the species that summoned them.

    Not as good as the first

    Really liked the first this one lost me a but, not so bad as I'll return it... I made it to the end but not as good as the first..

    Eight months have passed since the Star Shroud barrier was engaged to protect the Earth, but it won't last, and humanity is scrambling to build a fleet. Cut off from home, the crew of the Athena has taken refuge on the Boxan colony world, a last safe haven for the creators of the Star Shroud. When Kaylan forms a psychic link to a mysterious Boxan soldier fighting gruesome battles on a dying world, she has to act even if the Boxans refuse.

    Still interesting

    Still enjoying the series. However, where was the ending? The story just seemed to be left hanging in mid air, which is why I have only given 4 star..Show More »
