Rating: 3 of 5 Stars
Genre: SF
Pages: 232
Words: 80K


Lucky is starting to integrate into his new body but not consistently enough for Burke and the Crew to trust him with important roles on high stakes missions. However, that is taken out of their hands when the ConFed reveals its plans to wipe out the remaining fleet of the Empire it conquored in the previous book.

It’s up to Omega Force to put a stop to things and to start a galaxy wide rebellion before the Machine becomes powerful enough to rule unchallenged.

My Thoughts:

This is definitely a junkfood series. It’s light, fluffy, doesn’t fill you up, tastes good and when you’re done you wonder what you ate. And if you eat too much, you get sick. This Omega Force series is a big bag of Cheetos Puffs and 2-3 books is just the right serving. I have a feeling that 2 books is really the recommended Dr Bookstooge serving, but I’ll be finding that out next month when I read the 3rd (new to me) book.

But on to this book. My only “real” gripe is Dalzelle’s continual pushing of his other current series, The Terran Scout Fleet. It’s in this same universe and I “think” the main character is Burke’s son (not sure though) and I even understand why Dalzelle is trying to do it, but it just grates on me. Kind of like that guy who coughs “just that way” that annoys you for no apparent reason.

Honestly, describing this series as Cheetos is the best description and I feel no need to elaborate more. But for your edification and continual seeking after Knowledge, I’ll include a valuable link only available to everyone who is reading this (so feel very special)

  1. What a load of old waffle! I don’t even know why you bother getting out of bed to write this rubbish! Never seen such a pile of gobbledygook, mate, take a good look at yourself, you’re better than this! I’d rather have a half-eaten packet of Monster Munch that read another word of this disgraceful piffle. Rot!

    1. Excellent! and right on schedule too!

      Folks, I ordered the Full Bunty package from Film Authority only last night and look at that, he’s delivering already. You just don’t get service like that nowadays on most blogs.
      5stars for the excellent service.

  2. I’ve only ever seen Cheeto’s once here, I won a packet in Londis, they were football shaped to celebrate the Euro footy cup. They were quite yummy so I’m glad there isn’t any more floating about.

    1. Yep, cheetos has found that perfect combination that makes it a perfect junk food snack.
      When we buy them now, we only buy the little individual serving packages. Too much temptation otherwise

  3. Afraid I’m not a fan of the ol’ Cheetos, shockingly. Cheesy crisps/chips have never been my thing. Y’know, crisps are a delicacy, so I only go with the finest crinkled salt and vinegar. Prawn cocktail is my guilty pleasure. Mmm… Delicious.

    1. Uh oh, chip snob!
      Sound the alarms, get the emergency lights going, break out the big guns!

      This means W-A-A-A-A-R!!!!

      I suggest we fight over at Dix’s and make a mess of his place. Then we can make peace and castigate him for having such a messy comment section. That way WE have the moral high ground for any future arguments we might have with him. Sound good?

      1. It would be perfect, it really would. BUT!

        I am currently banned from Dix’s, which means I would be bucking his authority like he did the New York Times. I would have to fight on two fronts: for beautiful crisps, and against Scottish toddlers, at the same time. Someone should just start blog which can just be a battle ground for any of our thorny debates!

        1. Ok, how about a detente until we can resume the War at Dix’s?
          We can think nasty thoughts about the other’s choice of chips & crisps while saying nice things to our faces. That will also have the positive affect of giving us time to really marshal our arguments and figure out how to make the most mess possible.

            1. On a separate note, when are the answers to the last quiz going to be revealed? I’m curious to see how many I actually got, since that was the first quiz where I felt even semi-qualified…

              1. Yeah, you didn’t too shabbily! The answers will be released in the next quiz, which comes on Sunday, but I’ll release the guesses and tell you your score… Well, I don’t have an actual date for that. I usually just do it when I think people’s patience seem to be wearing thin. Tomorrow?

          1. Oh yes they are. I was just thinking about that, how odd it is that I can just buy these American products, or their equivalents, in the supermarket, as if my country is an extension of the US but only in part, and our culture is still quite different… Anyway the cassiere may not know your name.

            1. I’m afraid we’re entering the age of multinational corporations, just like the old sf books/movies predicted.

              I’d be surprised if they didn’t. I’m pretty famous you know. I had my own website and everything 😉


  4. Sci fi stories tend to be rather fluffy these days. In the so-called Golden Days of the genre there were lots more thought-provoking work being put out. Isaac Asimov, for example, was an East Coast professor. His heir today is Gregory Benford, another professor, but Benford doesn’t have quite the scientific crispness that Asimov did. Did you know Asimov died of AIDS gotten from a foul blood transfusion after surgery? True dat! Poor guy … well, he wrote enough books. It was time for somebody else to take over.
