Publisher's Summary

In the stillness of space, several asteroids disappear in the 82 G. Eridani System. Time passes and space wavers, and the missing asteroids reappear. They’re traveling at near-light-speed for the single populated planet. Nuclear-tipped missiles from the lone battleship fail to stop the asteroids, which crash against the planet, turning it into rubble and killing the 650 million inhabitants.

Someone has found and now tested the perfect planet killer, an ancient device that turns asteroids and icy planetesimals into world-destroying projectiles. Earth is a mere 20 light-years away. But who’s to say the hidden weapon will head there next? It can go anywhere in the commonwealth and destroy any world.

Star Watch is desperate, employing every ship, every scientist, and everyone, including the crew of Victory, to defend the planets.

Captain Maddox, Professor Ludendorff, and others must put aside every difference and concentrate on finding a weakness in the ultimate weapon, one they can exploit. Otherwise - the alternative is too stark to contemplate. It is time to pull together and think and fight like never before.

The Lost Tech is the 13th book in the Lost Starship series.

Great!

May not be the greatest Sci fi but I still loved it. Keep the series going well worth the money . Not sure why Auditable does not listed Lost Tech. under the lost starship series. They would have +20 times the reviews. Auditable should have a follow series button! Can’t know what you don’t know!!!

Lacking Character Substance

I have enjoyed each book in the series, but I have to add a exception to this book.

The dialogue and character interaction has become so tedious to get through and the amount of 'fill' where history is narrated over and over was so unnecessary I stopped listening mid-book, I ended up listening to another book and then came back to this one, eventually finishing it.

This is still a viable story with much potential, but the interactions and character development has not progressed as well as the storyline. I would argue that the dialogue has gotten so bad it is actually causing the series to be less enjoyable than previous installments.

More development toward an overall premise, please

I am beginning to suspect that this is yet another author who can never seem to finish what he has started. The best sci-fi series are those that come to a resolution, or at least a major waypoint, that can at least serve as a satisying end point, while still leaving room to explore in other directions, if need be.

I am losing interest in this series

I have lost interest in this series. It was always a little campy, but it has gotten worse and the new villains seem to be the same as the old ones. I don't think I will buy the next one.

another good addition to this series

This is another good addition to this series. The performance by Mark Boyett is great.

This is beginning to get incredibly repetitive...

I am beginning to get tired and bored, of the continuous mind control stuff. It was okay for one, maybe two books. It just seems like that is the core of almost all of this series, now. When one feels that they must keep using the same plot, concepts, and nearly identical stories in every book, it is then better to just close out the series. I'm about to listen to The Lost Tech, and I wager that mind control will be at the core of the disaster, yet again...

Mark Boyett is the ONLY reason that I've not yet shelved and forgotten this series. As always, Mark can bring a story vividly to life, even if that story is essentially the same story as the previous seven or eight books. Frankly, Mark is likely the only reason that Mr. Heppner is continuing to sell this awful repetition... Just my two cents.

Series is becoming tedious and secular

I've enjoyed this series from the beginning but it is quickly becoming repetitive and boring. The same issues keep coming up; oh no someone got mind controlled and cant be trusted anymore, the professor is up to his tricks, this main character lost all character development that happened in the past 12 books and is making the same stupid mistakes again. This series is also losing all its tech/science based adventure and is now more focused on the mystical/religious/spirit nonsense that is explained through loose reasoning and mysticism.

Poor audio quality

I have loved every book in this series. Plus the narrator has been great. But the recording of this book keeps skipping and is very frustrating.
