Geary’s legendary exploits have earned him the adoration of the people—and the enmity of politicians convinced that a living hero can be a very inconvenient thing. The century-long war between the Alliance and the Syndicate Worlds may be over, but Geary and his newly christened First Fleet have been ordered back into action to investigate the aliens occupying the far side of Syndic space and to determine how much of a threat they represent to the Alliance. And while the Syndic Worlds are no longer united, individually they may be more dangerous than ever before. Geary knows that members of the military high command and the government question his loyalty to the Alliance and fear his staging a coup, so he can’t help but wonder if the newly christened First Fleet is being sent to the far side of space on a suicide mission.
William C. Dietz, the author of the "Legion of the Damned" series, calls Dreadnaught "a rousing adventure", and Elizabeth Moon, the Nebula Award-winning author of the "Vatta's War" series, says it’s “loaded with edge-of-your-seat combat". Read by Christian Rummel, who has narrated The Lost Fleet series to excellent reviews, Dreadnaught promises to be an out-of-this-world experience.

Double crossing scum and aliens
Performed very very well, that can only come with equally great content, I like this better than watching TV as a whole as the story is driven without limits to budget as your mind is guided through battles and conference room confrontations to political back stabbing, toss in a few aliens and BAM! you have one of the best storys to listen too.

Got me into audio science fiction audio books!
This is one of the best books I have listened to. Normally I just listen to fiction or semi-fiction books, but i bought this on a whim. After listening I was hooked and listened in 1 sitting. I then went and bought all the beyond the frontier series books and wish i would have started with the first lost fleet books. The narrator is one of the best which makes me unable to listen to many audio books.

Good story, narration off-putting
Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?
I'd recommend the entire series; it would be hard to engage with this book unless you'd read the previous ones. High entertainment value, with interesting characters and politics to keep you brain busy between the gripping battle scenes.
What did you like best about this story?
The imagination and mystery surrounding the alien races.
What didn’t you like about Christian Rummel and Jack Campbell (Introduction) ’s performance?
I found Rummel's voice characterizations distasteful. Desjani sounds like a bitchy Stepford Wife more than a battleship captain, and some of the male characters sound like they have chronic sinusitis. The whole thing sounds cartoonish. This is just my reaction; many people obviously like the narration, which is certainly competent. I just don't care for the interpretation. I do want to read the rest of the books, but I think I'll actually read (instead of listen to) them
If this book were a movie would you go see it?
Probably not (I'm not a big movie-goer).
