Military discipline and honor have been a poor match for Capt. Wilson Cole´s life of pillaging and plundering. Seeking a better way of life, the Teddy R. has become a mercenary ship, hiring out to the highest bidder. Whether it´s evacuating a hospital before war can reach it, freeing a client from an alien prison, or stopping a criminal cartel from extorting money from a terrified planet, the crew of the Teddy R. proves equal to the task. Along the way, they form a partnership with the once human Platinum Duke, team up with a former enemy, and make the unique Singapore Station their headquarters.The life of a mercenary is not always predictable. Circumstance now pits Cole and the Teddy R. against the former Pirate Queen, Valkyrie. Soon the fragile trust that has grown between these two legends is put to the test as they find themselves on opposite sides of a job. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Jonathan Davis, Mike Resnick.

The Galaxy´s Doomed Without Him The Ixa smashed the galaxy to bits before they were defeated. Captain Husher has sounded the alarm in the decades since: the Ixa’s creators will return to finish the job. But unlike Husher, the galactic government didn´t battle the Ixa, and the politicians have convinced themselves that maintaining peace means limiting the ability to wage war. Now the enemy has returned, with high-tech weapons that prove they haven’t limited their own combat capabilities in the slightest. If Captain Husher and his beleaguered supercarrier crew can´t manage to stop the invaders, they will happily devour the galaxy whole. Fans of Daniel Arenson and Jay Allan will love Capital Starship, part of a new military science fiction series set in the Ixan Prophecies universe. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Mark Boyett.

It was supposed to be an easy job: find the Dark Star Revolution Starships, destroy them, and go home. But a booby-trapped vessel decimates the Meridian Alliance fleet, leaving Serengeti - a Valkyrie class warship with a sentient AI brain - on her own, wrecked and abandoned in an empty expanse of space. On the edge of total failure, Serengeti thinks only of her crew. She herds the survivors into a lifeboat, intending to sling them into space. But the escape pod sticks in her belly, locking the cryogenically frozen crew inside. Then a scavenger ship arrives to pick Serengeti´s bones clean. Her engine´s dead, her guns long silenced; Serengeti and her last two robots must find a way to fight the scavengers off and save the crew trapped inside her. 1. Language: English.

Starship engineer Anailu Xindar dreamed of owning her own ship, but she didn´t find the courage to actually go for it until she was forced out of her safe, comfortable job. She goes shopping for a cheap, practical freighter, but she ends up buying a rare, beautiful, but crippled luxury ship. Getting it into space will take more than her technical skills. She´ll have to go way outside her comfort zone to brave the dangers of safaris, formal dinners, a rude professor, and, worst of all, a fashion designer. She may even have to make some friends...and enemies. The Sculpted Ship is set on the outskirts of an interstellar empire where FTL travel is commonplace but intelligent robots are rare and expensive.

Once upon a time there was a boy named David, who slew a terrible foe.... David Birkenhead might have been only twelve years old, but his entire life was already laid out for him. First, his father was supposed to teach him how to run a starship´s engine room. Then, when the time came, he´d take over the job himself. This was the way of things for slave bunnies like David; luxuries like career choices were reserved for humans only. Not that David was complaining - compared to the farm bunnies or domestic-servant rabbits, he had it made. There was even a pretty doe waiting for him in the wings. Then, the ships of the Boyen Emperor arrive on David´s home world, and nothing could ever be the same again. Great houses of nobility would contest for power, kingdoms would teeter on the edge of oblivion.... And out of the resulting vortex, young David would bring peace and justice to a thousand worlds. 1.
