Forgettable. ( )
  DanielSTJ | Dec 18, 2018 |
Totally implausible plot, the first interstellar voyage staffed entirely by the military for no reason. No known threat to Earth. They visit a new star system, no one cares a bit. They discover a human, not a humanoid, a real human. Again no one cares. Fight some bug creatures that have an invincible weapon they only bother to use once and then forget about. Humans triumphant with only one casualty. Worse than Battlefield Earth, that's quite an accomplishment. ( )

good action - good world building - good technicals - likable characters - will definitely read more by this author (just barely fell short of "must buy the next book immediately") ( )

Who doesn't like Military Science Fiction? Seriously. And this was a pretty good effort after all, but serious fiction it is not. But who needs serious fiction all the time? Isn't it fun to see how smart and warlike we are, and how we can fight better than other species?

This was a fun read, weak on characterization but the military aspects were awesome, and I frankly looked forward to reading it every evening. What more can a person ask? ( )

Interesting and pretty well done military SF, with the first starship into space from Earth immediately running into an interstellar war.

Barring the idea that the first shot out of the gate we'd run into such a thing, it was a well done space battle book, with some interesting hints of what is to come, and what sort of universe the crew of the Odyssey and Earth is going to be dealing with.

Pretty good characterization for this particular sub-genre as well. ( )

First words
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.

Book description
Haiku summary

"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. [4] of cover.… (more)
