"Sergeant Samuel Morgan Campbell had been in plenty of tight spots before, but nothing like this. It had happened in a few terrifying seconds: the starship he and his crew travelled on, the Outward Initiative, shattered to pieces before their eyes and disappeared, leaving them stranded in the endless night of deep space on Lifeboat LS-88-- all systems dead, light-years from any known colony. Somehow, Sergeant Campbell and his crew of half-trained children ranging from freshly graduated Xander Bird down to eight-year-old Francisco-- have to repair systems with no tools, navigate with no computers, and-- if they could find a planet they could live on-- land a shuttle whose controls more than half-destroyed. And if they manage all of that, then the real were challenge begins; the only planet in range has secrets that even Sergeant Campbell cannot imagine!"--Dust jacket flap.

Eric Flint did a middling good job writing alternate history novels a few years ago. Then he learned he could put his name on works by unknown writers and still make a lot of money without having to do anything for it.

This book is 300-plus pages of cardboard cutout characters talking to one another about all manner of things that contribute nothing to the plot, imaginary physics performing heroic and miraculous deeds explained in loving detail, and a story. Not a plot, a story. Plots include suspense.

300 pages without a moment of suspense is an accomplishment of sorts, I suppose.
