The 131 Preview Review Presents
As the description tells it you get a pretty good sense of where the tale is heading, Lt. Dale Abbott is a native Ohioan, who after a divorce leave him feeling rather raw decides to take a mission to the stars. One which all involved know to be a one way trip.
He is a Science Officer, with nothing left to lose, except his mind. Once awakened for his rotation the tedious tasks of maintaining the ship alone begin to twist his mind towards the past. All those that he ever cared for are long dead. He has been traveling for centuries along with seven other crew members who all have had their multiple turns at the DOVE Systems helm.
I don't want to give away the nooks and crannies of this tale from author David Edward Wagner. But I will comment on some things. The author manages to capture the isolation of deep space in a way that you truly feel just what Lt. Abbott is going through. This is a good thing, you are taken through the day to day, routines and like the Lt. you find yourself hoping for something new to happen.
