Another area I thought Mr. Ferren could have improved his writing would be to show and describe past events instead of just telling readers what happened 40,000 years ago. I think there are 3 or 4 times where large portions of back story are told instead of experienced. Lastly, Mr. Ferren did a good job of removing typos from his work, but proofreading could be improved. I found a few places where missing words made a sentence flow poorly or incorrect use of a homonym, "roll" where it should be "role", "heals" instead of "heels", "coarse" instead of "course".
If Mr. Ferren is able to expand on the universe he created and actually describe it in a way his readers can better visualize, I think he will become an outstanding author. As far as I'm concerned, that's the only thing keeping him from being an author I would continue to read regularly.
Without spoiling it is safe to say, that this episode is some kind of a continuum for previous Galactic Alliance book (Translight). A crew of terran ship ends in to a s*** of a episodes of encounters, boredom, fights and accidental survival and lousy relationships.
With spoilers: You find a new species from the space. And then another. Some of them try to kill your species. Fortunately, others are deus ex machina. And there you go.
The theme form previous book is obvious but with worse twist. You can read this through without too much brain damage but still its not very good. One third of the book is entertaining, one third is boring and one third is humiliating.
Did it get a bit long winded on past histories? Well maybe, but one might appreciate the difficulty of bringing 40 millennia of history into a standard sized novel. I would not let that get in the way of a solid four star rating!
