After the latest mission of the starship Flying Dutchman, Earth is safe not just for a year but for hundreds of years. The ship’s weary crew wonders what they will do with their lives in peacetime, but the enemy has other plans, and there is danger on the Homefront. Starring Zachary Quinto, R. C. Bray, Kate Mulgrew, Robert Picardo, and everyone's favorite AI, Skippy the Magnificent, alongside a full cast. Includes plenty of pew-pew-pew, original sound composition, and maybe some singing by R. C. Bray.

First thing this is not an audiobook, but while most of the performances are great they have been hindered by some of the bad background audio that makes it hard to understand what’s been said.

The story it self is good and acts like epilogue to the pervious book and prologue to the next book

More than half the book doesn’t follow the joe or Dutch when it does the author insist on putting you through a comedy routine and insisting that it’s fun.
