Recently picked this (2007 printed) book up in a charity shop for £1, and well worth the pound! The story-line takes place within the re-imagined Battlestar Galactica Universe, the story line is about a professional scavenger called Tom Varek, who comes across the Omega Station, full of cylons, but there is more to story than that, don’ want to spoil the story line for those people that will read it. I conclude that it is an excellent and enjoyable story-line, slots perfectly into the Battlestar Galactica world, read the book in 3 days (a few days off work due to government election period in the UK), could not put it down, kept reading chapter after chapter, really lost myself in the book, excellently written, keep all the main characteristics of the Battlestar Galactica universe, introduces new characters not seen on the TV series. Another book for my Battlestar Galactica collection. 5 out 5... Well worth reading for Battlestar Galactica, only problem no pictures in the book...... ( )

I'm not a fan of the show, but my husband is, and he truly enjoyed this story. He read it in only a day, which is a near-record! He said it doesn't exactly follow the show, but it was a good, quick read that fans should really like. ( )

The story was fairly sound, but the character development was really lacking. Garder created a nice, little backstory for Tom Zarek, but the story contributed little to Adama's and Tigh's characters. Good bedtime reading, full of fluff. Garder also need to learn how to write in the past tense without using the word "had". ( )

Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0765315793, Paperback)

Sometimes no news is bad news.

It's been twenty years since the end of the Cylon war. The twelve human colony worlds are rebuilding, and the Cylons . . . the Cylons have been just too quiet. They are nowhere to be found. The robotic race that tried to obliterate their creators has gone to parts unknown in deep space.

The aftermath of the war has created a new, illegal profession: scavenger. Tom Zarek is one, scouring the outer settlements for valuable Cylon technologies and artifacts and usually returning empty-handed. But now, he and the crew of the Cruiser Lightning have found the Omega Station, a scientific station shrouded in secrecy beyond the edge of charted space. This is it, the big score, except something is wrong…the base is still occupied, not by humans alone; by Cylons too!

The Battlestar Galactica, one of the oldest warships in the fleet, receives the Lightning's distress call, a cryptic one-word message: "Cylons." William Adama, newly promoted to second-in-command, is worried. Most of his crew are green, new recruits, not prepared for anything but the most routine missions. And, as Adama soon discovers, this mission is anything but routine. Omega is indeed full of Cylons, but also something much more disturbing . . .
