Couldn't get through this one... the premise is flimsier than aluminum foil.

Firstly, please disregard Paul W's comments. Anyone unwilling to suspend their disbelief long enough to get past his complaints really has no business reading a story like this. I mean, we're talking about hyperspace, and light years, and huge spacefaring craft and first contact and he's whinging about "respect for a commanding officer". Please.

Anyway, I found this to be very compelling and quick moving. In the end I wanted to know much much more about the story and the characters, and that is a good thing. A very quick read that won't bog you down but will intrigue.

What starts as relatively standard fare, 50's sci-fi packs an interesting twist. Short stories like this area almost always worth the minimal time reader's must inveeset, this is no exception.

Very interesting premise for a short story. The only issues I had is that it seemed a bit rushed, as though it would have made a better novella w/50-100 more pages. And the painfully obvious love interest pasted in is a bit forced.

Interesting and bite sized though.

And also like other stories of this length it puts forth an entertaining premise and an interesting twist and then its over.

Another fun, short, bite-sized read to be found here.
