Beta Three, call sign Thinker, like so many young fools before him, joined the Legion after the love of his life walked out. Fresh from the boot camp called Planet Hell, Thinker's unit is called to defend a remote ConFree world from a mysterious System incursion. The Legion doesn't negotiate with slavers, even if it means another costly war.He and the rest of the fearless Legion will soon discover that giant exosegs, slavers, and systies are just the beginning. Once before, the Legion faced the godlike, utterly alien and evil, Omnis, and drove them back at the cost of billions of lives.

Thinker is only just beginning to comprehend the depth of his insanity.

adolescent enhanced narration, not audiodrama

PRODUCTION :
This Audiobook is an "enhanced" reading/narration (main narrator with supplemental character qyotes supplied by other voice talent as opposed to an actual Audio "play" (much like Simon&Schuster StarTrek books)
The main narrator is OK a little dry, the others are wooden or play character voices "over the top" and silly.

STORY :
The story is a butch homage to Starship Troopers
in fatuated with military technology, but little of the political theory of it's conceptual godparent.

The piece also has an adolscent sexual fixation on female chacters...obsessing about their legs or undergarments for no story purpose

While not terrbile (I was looking for bubblegum, not literature), in the end I found it directionless and somewhat dissatisfying

Puerile fluff

If you are into comics without graphics this might be for you. It's poorly presented, has an unbelievably infantile story line, sexless, fawning interactions between the main male and female protagonists. The constant battle descriptions are even more boring and repetitive than the background sound track.
