"Beyond the confines of our small world, far from the glow of our star, lies a galaxy and universe much larger and more varied than anyone on Earth can possibly imagine. For the new NAC spacecraft Odyssey and her crew, the unimaginable facets of this untouched world are about to become reality. The Odyssey's maiden voyage is an epic adventure destined to make history. Captain Eric Weston and his crew, pushing past the boundaries of security, encounter horrors, wonders, monsters, and people, all of which will test their resolve, challenge their abilities, and put in sharp relief what is necessary to be a hero. A first-rate military science fiction epic that combines old-school space opera and modern storytelling, Into the Black: Odyssey One is a riveting, exhilarating adventure with vivid details, rich mythology, and relentless pacing"--P.

I enjoyed reading the book and the only reason I am giving it 4 stars rather than 5 is lack of character development as well as lack of deeper sci-fi concepts involvement. There are good deal of dogfighting scenes in the book if you are interested but if you are looking for a more or less classical sci-fi with some taste of romance this book is not something you I recommend.

While reading it, to some extent it is reminding me of Revelation Space series by Alastair Reynolds and whole idea of the Inhibitors. I will be more certain of the theme when I read the next 3 books in the series.

Often, with me, Space Operas are hit or miss. There's either too much mindless action or too much mindless action or there's even too much mindless action.

But sometimes, fortunately, I get caught up with a crew of some really great characters. They get thrown in some interesting situations with plenty of translator humor, and then, suddenly, all my worries just seem to melt away.

If you're looking for some great pew-pew, vroom, and kaa-plowie action, this novel has it in spades and spades, and it's great fun, but none of that would be quite as fun or engaging without a great cast.

This has a great cast. :)

It's also the kind of thing I've always enjoyed about Star Trek. It's all about people who get thrown into situations that may or may not be out of their ken or abilities, but more often than not, it is the fundamental aspects of living and getting along that make them so damn real and a part of our lives. The ship breaks. There's plenty of miscommunication in and out of the hull. And best of all, it's the little heroisms that snag me. :)

Of course, if you want to be an explorer on the first interstellar spacecraft, meeting good and bad aliens and getting caught up in some really stellar action, I think you'll enjoy this novel, too. :) I mean, this is the DEFINITION of Space Opera. :)

Good clean fun... with or without court-martials. :)

What a great start to a space opera/adventure series. The story follow Captain Eric Weston and his crew of the NAC Odyssey as they become the first humans to venture out of our solar system. Using the new interstellar drive system they travel great distances in a matter of moments. Upon arriving at a star several light years away they are surprised to receive what appears to be a distress call. What they find is shocking and will forever change the course of humanity. ( )

Pretty standard Sci-fi wars in space. Alien worlds with humans, incredible "warp" drives which gave everyone upset stomachs, cocky fighter pilots, female military leaders. All it lacks from the tropes is a little romance. Could have come from the 60's. ( )

As his fighter broke clear of the atmosphere, Eric Weston reached forward and flipped a series of switches to disengage the Scramjet intake and engage the pressurized oxygen flow to the twin engines. The rush of air across the fuselage had long since faded, thinning to nothing as he angled the nose down and aimed for geosync orbit. Beyond the cockpit glass, the curve of Earth was clearly visible as he casually flipped the plane over and took a moment to admire the view so far below.
