Publisher's Summary

When the supergiant star Antares exploded in 2512, the human colony on Alta found their pathway to the stars gone, isolating them from the rest of human space for more than a century. Then one day, a powerful warship materialized in the system without warning. Alarmed by the sudden appearance of such behemoth, the commanders of the Altan Space Navy dispatched one of their most powerful ships to investigate. What ASNS Discovery finds when they finally catch the intruder is a battered hulk manned by a dead crew.
That is disturbing news for the Altans. For the dead battleship could easily have defeated the whole of the Altan navy. If it could find Alta, then so could whoever it was that beat it. Something would have to be done.

Basically a good science fiction story, well told.

Michael McCollum's Antares Dawn and the next book, Antares Passage, must be read together for a satisfying story arc. Sufficiently engaging characters.

I enjoyed it, but it was terribly out of date.

I thought the story was good, but the sexism could have (and probably should have) been given an updated explanation for the audio version. As written, it would have made total sense when it was originally published (I had to look that up and then said "Oh, 1986... right.").

I thought the universe created, however, was interesting enough to move on to the others in the series.
