"A captain's first duty is to the Confederation..." Confederation Fleet General Order Number One
The destroyer Shigure is the oldest destroyer in the fleet - or so she seems. Equipped with a powerful, new device, the "Late Rain" is chosen for a special, dangerous project. With a young crew and modifications that makes her vessel not what she seems, Commander Leslie Hawkins presses into unknown space to examine structures detected by a Confederation Fleet survey vessel - and discovers that Mankind is not alone.

Solid space opera combat action
James Young opens his Vergassy series with a taught mixture of anime-flavored characterization and well-done tropes with Star Trek in the vein of the original Wrath of Khan and Search for Spock. Add in dashes of Honor Harrington (,but much less stuffy), and a bit of Modesitt, and you've got some fun space navy action. You can tell Young knows his Star Fleet Battles inside out.
