Summary

On her maiden voyage, HMS Warspite discovered Vesy, a world populated by primitive aliens, aliens whose culture had already been twisted and warped by human refugees from the First Interstellar War. Now, Captain John Naiser and his crew spearhead a diplomat mission to the alien homeworld, hoping to ease them into the galactic mainstream. But with hundreds of others hoping to influence and shape the developing alien culture, and all hell threatening to break loose as human ideals meet alien realities, events on Vesy might just mark the start of a new interstellar conflict....
And a civil war that will tear the human sphere apart.

The usual boys own stuff from Nuttall

Military sci-fi is Marmite and divides opinion. I'm pretty much a fan, so I can't claim to be fully objective. Nuttall writes simple stuff, with little other than adrenalin driven excitement to commend it, but I'm hooked and can't wait for the next book.

disappointing

I have listened to the previous books in this series and this one was sadly disappointing. just a political story. no real action as such. a shame.

India on the Move

Captain John Naiser and the crew of HMS Warspite are back on Vesy with the newly appointed Ambassador to Vesy. In the prior book Naiser and crew had discovered a world (Vesy) populated by primitive aliens. The Russians were already on the planet when Warspite arrived.

When Warspite returned they found many countries of Earth already there with India having the largest contingency. India wants to control the plant and all the tram lines in the system.

The book moves very slowly and bogs down in political rhetoric which in many ways makes it boring. Nuttall usually writes a fast paced action packed story, this is not his usual writing style. I did note the irony of the British/India twist. Ralph Lister does a good job narrating the story.

The evolution of this story is stupid

i have enjoyed earlier books in this series but after a major interstellar war i find it hard to imagine a bunch of nastiness and factions squabbling over control of a new planet with a new alien presence...

maybe our species will remain as stupid and idiotic as we are today but i hope not and really are not interested in continuing this adventure...there is enough idiocy today... and the story line had lost its magic
