The continuing adventures of the starship A.S.F. Willful Child. Its ongoing mission: to seek out strange new worlds on which to plant the Terran flag, to subjugate and if necessary obliterate new life-forms, to boldly blow the...
And so we join the not-terribly-bright but exceedingly cock-sure Captain Hadrian Sawback and his motley crew on board the Starship Willful Child for a series of devil-may-care, near-calamitous and downright chaotic adventures through "the infinite vastness of interstellar space."
The New York Times bestselling author of the acclaimed Malazan Book of the Fallen series has taken his lifelong passion for Star Trek and transformed it into a smart, inventive, and hugely entertaining spoof on the whole mankind-exploring-space-for-the-good-of-all-species-but-trashing-stuff-with-a-lot-of-high-tech-gadgets-along-the-way, overblown adventure. The result is an SF novel that deftly parodies the genre while also paying fond homage to it.

A rollicking good time..
An amazing performance by MacLeod Andrews, one of his best vocal achievements. A fun continuation of the Willful Child saga, if you are looking for a fun read that touches on social issues in a fun and satirical way look no further. An interesting look at the state of the world today through the lens of a StarTrek spoof.
I call it brilliant.

Not as good as the last one
The author seemed to want to comment on the political atmosphere of 2016, along with how he seems to see that those whom are overly conservative are not up to his standards.
While there were done genuinely entertaining parts of this book, some parts were a slog to get through.
