Publisher's Summary

The war is over. Hurray! Half the fleet is back in mothballs. But out on the rim of human space, ships are disappearing. Some are merchant ships going about their business. Others are exploration ships on deep space probes. What's happening to them?
Captain Rita Nuu Longknife is ready to take the heavy cruiser Exeter to space and see what's out there. She may have a nursery next to the captain's cabin and a two-month-old baby on her hip, but she's taking a warship out there, and nobody better get in her way.

A WINNER !

I like the skepticism and the reluctance. It's the human condition to avoid the obvious .

What military allows a new born infant into space?

I don't understand why it was so important for Rita to bring her child into space. All militaries do not allow any enlisted or officers to be on duty while pregnant or for at least 3 to 6 months after, generally provide daycare, and wouldn't allow an unweened infant onto a military vessel especially one that is expecting combat. i just don't understand the author and it really killed the book for me.
