In the grim darkness of the future there is only rum giant malevolent space goldfish and the lashI need to remind you that the distilled intoxicant of choice in this universe is called goofjuiceActually just the cane and it turns out that only junior officers are subject to being beaten with it Which seems like a weird line in the sand to draw in a system where miscreants can be literally hanged by the neck until dead for infractions such as striking the captain and in a series where so much time is spent calculating demerits and logging how often various midshipmen get caned and whether or not it will break them or make them stronger or teach them an important lesson about not beating up other people Corporal punishment is clearly a key piece of Feintuch's interest in doing the Age of Sail In Space yet he restrained himself from introducing a spacecat o' nine tails No one is going to get keelhauled in vacuumI was not able to bring myself to give a star rating to the first book in this saga on the grounds it was too outrageously aggressively dumb that it defied the logic of a book rating system This second installment which you will notice I did manage to rate puts into perspective what my problems were Unlike the first book this book has a fairly strong plotcrisis that dominates the whole book our hero is dumped on a disabled ship light years from home with only his least likable midshipman whom he and his officers basically terrorized into a nervous breakdown in the previous book a skeleton crew of troublemakers a handful of aging passengers and a gaggle of feral street children dumped on an orphan train to space Seafort has to try to make a functional crew that can keep everyone alive and figure out how to deal with the impossible position he's in at the head of a sealed community with almost no hope of rescue no way to get home and dwindling rations This provides plot with stakes to scaffold the stuff that Feintuch cares about namely having Seafort yell at everyone alienate everyone because the naval regs reuire him to do so angst around self hatingly and then reluctantly accept that his harshness has in fact made him a hero because it's What Needed To Be Done and What Teenaged Boy Doesn't Need A Good Beating Now And Again To Teach Him Manners But here there are stakes that relate directly to whether or not Seafort's rigid sense of duty and naval hierarchy will save his ship or destroy it In the first book this social drama was basically all there was except for occasional thrilling Incidents like taking out the manual and figuring out how to reprogram the ship's computer for three chaptersSo I can consider this A Novel In fact it's a novel with a pretty good plot as milscifi standard plots go Things are tense I genuinely needed to know how they would get out of this one To Feintuch's small credit the subplot with the feral urchins was not treated entirely cheaply but see below as you would expect Seafort finds a few Worthy Individuals Who Want To Better Themselves among them but there's no overnight integration of the privileged passengers and the lowlife teenage gangmembers and even Seafort's protegés for the most part have not become settled in the civilized world of the Navy after the six months of so that the novel coversThat said The final plot resolution is an unabashed deus ex machina and that sort of spoils it I've mostly avoided talking in detail about this whole subplot because it's just BAD but it needs to be said everything involving the feral street urchins is extremely racist in implication and execution This is a novel written in the mid 90s and the Clinton crime bill and its racist scaremongering about super predators are all over it I don't even know where to start with the treatment of female character'sSeafort's romantic life But it's bad Really badIf it weren't for these last two elements I could probably give this book two stars on the grounds that although terrible on any objective level it's tolerable as mindless fun But because of them I have to give it but one star And 13 demerits

This is the second book of the Seafort Saga and it is even a bit better than book one One of the most interesting aspects to me was the introduction of the trans pop cultureIn the futre Fentuch envisions in some large cities the elite live in shielded buildings and much of the city below is deserted The transient population lives amidst the rubble of the old cities and has a great mistrust of the the Uppies The trannies appear here for the first time They are a violent gang like culture but with some rules and honor Nick Seafort must work with the tranies and the rest of the crew as they seek to repair the ship Won't give any spoilers but the race to get home alive is gripping
