"intriguing characters make this excellent Space Opera"
Calling all Star Trek lovers. You will adore COMMAND
PERFORMANCE by award-winning sci-fi and fantasy novelist
I didn't think it possible to create more intriguing
characters than those populating the Star Trek or Star
Wars universe, but Linnea Sinclair has added exciting,
fresh plots. Of course space is such a huge place. The
colorful cast of characters includes a lovesick half-human
cyborg, a dashing, telepathic ladies man, a very hip and
sassy but private heroine, a beautiful empathic/telepathic
healer, and a pair of adorable furzels I yearn to scoop
right out of the pages and take home for keeps if mine
wouldn't get too jealous.
Sass, the ship's captain, is perfectly nick-named and
reminds me a lot of another spunky, cute blonde I know
from somewhere... She's spunky, sassy, and one tough lady
you don't want to cross. As self-assured as she is about
her job, her abilities and every other part of her life,
she is scared to let any man too close, especially one who
is half man, half machine.
Admiral Branden Kel-Paten, reminiscent of Lieutenant
Commander Data, becomes so very human when he becomes
smitten with the sassy, remote captain.
Charmingly warm healer and confidante, Dr. Eden Fynn, is
the perfect foil and best friend to the captain. This is a
female captain-doctor team is the best since Captain Kirk
Telepath, Jace Serafino, the sexiest and most adorable
space rebel since Hans Solo makes my pulse jump into hyper-
drive. He can visit me telepathically anytime.
I loved Sass's "No No bad captain" t-shirt and think I
will buy it for sure.
Chemistry sizzles between lovers and friends as magically
as between the cast of the original Star Trek. I've been
counting down the days till the sure-to-be exciting
sequel, COMMAND DECISION, coming to the NBI star-studded
galaxy in 2003, which is nowhere near soon enough for this
space opera junky.
