I'm a space opera junkie from way back, but this one didn't do much for me.

This is supposed to be a collaboration between the listed author and E. E. "Doc" Smith -- but don't let that get your hopes up.

Even the climactic space battle is something of a dud, which is not what you'd normally expect from Smith.

Not awful, but not all that entertaining, either.
