Publisher's Summary

What was supposed to be a six month cruise of discovery had turned into a glorified babysitting adventure for a bunch of civilians. Leave it to the Imperial Navy to ruin a good thing.

Petty Officer Tanner just wanted to finish the patrol and get back to normal. That, and as far away from the enticing Miss Nora Johnson as possible.

All that changed when the ISS Intrepid was threatened with destruction and he quickly became the only thing between these civilians and instant death.

After crash landing on the strange new world, Petty Officer Eric Tanner had to keep these civilians alive until they were rescued. Heaven knows they weren't going to do it on their own.

Heinlein Juvenile with a Splash of Larry Niven

Starts out pretty good, with a cool space adventure and than moves on to an unexplored planet. What got me most was that I kept listening not to find out if these people survived or to hear about the strange animals, but because of the sexual tension between the two main characters. Our main character is TOUGHER THAN LAST WEEK'S DONUTS and he is in charge of a bunch of college kids who DIDN'T EVEN KNOW WHAT THEY DIDN'T KNOW, when it comes to survival.

This is a YA book, the main character is a 23 year old virgin. HE WONDERED IF THIS WAS WHAT SEX WAS LIKE. As I said before it started out pretty good, but as it went on it got sappy and went overboard in the main character worship. There is a lot of talk about his large square shoulders and how much he sacrifices for the others. Towards the end their is the constant, "Oh, he is going to chew me out or They are going to court marshal me, etc, etc. while all who are listening know the opposite. There is no sex and no foul language.
