A three star book, but one of those rare ones where it's not because it is mediocre, but because it's just a good, albeit forgettable book. "Formulaic and uninspired but well-crafted" is a good phrase for it.
Probably the best thing about it is that this is an omnibus of shorter stories. As such, no book/story outlives it's welcome. Each is much like a television episode, a self-contained story that you can choose to enjoy at your leisure or binge it.
The characters are a bit flat but overall fun. They are typical space fiction archetypes that are put in a new position in each "mission" and you get to watch them work out the problem of the week. The problems range from trying to outrun a much richer and more powerful enemy, to a bit of space pirate action, to learning one of the character's backstory.
I'd recommend this book to anyone who likes a lighter spaceship book (or show). It is an experience rather than some highbrow literature. I for one will continue the series.

Yes, for those you remember the tv shows Fire Fly or Farscape then this book is for you. A large part was entertaining enough that I am buying the remainder in the series. The characters are flawed and the stories are just thrown together but that was the same with those tv shows.

Star Wars or Farscape meets Firefly or Serenity and absolutely brilliant with characters that are complex but easy to like making you want to know more.
