Jumps right into exciting action aboard the SFPT – 109 John F. Kennedy. Captain Daniel Cooper is concerned about making sure his staff of military, civilian, and scientific personnel aboard the sentient Space Fleet Patrol Torpedo ship Kennedy are ready for the next surprise that comes from another galaxy. The earth has not yet joined in trade with any extra-terrestrial worlds, but new technology makes flight to such places much simpler. After having rescued aliens from invaders, Cooper, his superiors and specialists have to figure out where the threat originated and how to make sure they can secure enough crystals from the planet Rys to build and power weapons. What is supposed to be a simple trade mission turns into a battle, but at least significant intelligence is gathered, along with the crystals, from a grateful king. Pursuing the need to fight this unknown threat, some of the alien survivors add their expertise to improve the overall functioning of the Kennedy and other space ships. Meanwhile, back on earth, a hidden plot threatens to undo all the good that Cooper and his team are accomplishing in the far reaches of space. Will the double threat prove too much for the decorated, daring captain and his compatriots or will the spirit of intergalactic cooperation succeed?
Loaded with space battles, the will to dominate the world, greed, diplomacy, romance and intrigue, there is nothing missing in this fantastic science fiction thriller. Confrontation: Aliens and Humans – Allies and Enemies is actually Book Two in the Space Fleet Sagas, but can be read quite easily as a stand-alone. There are many characters, but the relationships and close working conditions help keep everything straight, and the action carries you right along as each one does his or her job expertly. The outside influences are just one element to keep it interesting and the relationship you build with each of the crew members keeps you on the edge of your seat.

I’m often as surprised as the reader by some of the things happening along the way.”
