Has Fire with Fire turned you off from other books in this genre?
I do not think the author adds anything to the genre. I feel he took the Star Trek premise of a federation but does not tell it as well.
Any additional comments?
I just couldn't care about any of the characters in this books. I find it amazing that the female character in the book was put in cryo in 2066 and she is amazed that you can give a car voice commands and they can drive themselves. It is like the author wrote this book in 1955 and didn't update any of the technology.

i couldnt finish it. character so perfect can instantly figure out anything instantly. spoilers.
the main character is able to instantly identify a random person as an assassin, and figure out his convoluted plan to assassinate him by suicide using antimatter drive of a ship he rigged to explode, which would have killed some 8000 people. because a company tried to cover up alien life.
the guy is the gariest and sueiest of gary stus. he is a ploymath, which evidently means he is perfect at everything. think sherlock holmes meets house without the attitude/personallity problems as he is just so charming.
some attempt to make him seem more human with overblown ptsd issues and other tot.
the narrator doesnt help much, using a bad accent for all the foreign characters, and the 1940s radio/dudly doright voice for the main character.
this is one i REALLY wish i could return.
