    1. Overall a very nice series. Very hopeful, a bit naive and a bit outdated, but also charming, thoughtful and lovely in many ways. The characters were very engaging and diverse. Some of the ideas of what alien life would be like were very creative. And the ship was just wonderful, much nicer than even my charming suburb. If I could travel the stars like that, I'd be off in a heartbeat (if they let dogs come along, of course).

    2. This finishes up the 4-volume Starfarer seriesAlien Contact specialist JD inherits a starship from a squidmoth, the Starfarer team meets the various alien inhabitants of a 4-planet system, and tries to get humanity accepted by interstellar Civilization, even as they deal with both political and interpersonal issues amongst themselves

    3. Finally finished this; not sure why it took as long as it did. I enjoyed the story, and the hopeful/optimistic wrap-up of the series. I wanted to shake Stephen Thomas for CONSTANTLY making assumptions about other people without checking to see if they had any basis in reality or not, and was glad when he finally pulled his head out.

    4. Ebook. Good conclusion to the series. The important issues are resolved and the ending, while a bit too fast at the very end, does have happy promise.
