Publisher's Summary

Marine Lieutenant Jacob Brown was on borrowed time, and he knew it.

He was a rogue element, disobeying orders and pursuing mission goals of his own. His Scout Team had been burned, disavowed by his chain of command and the owner of the stolen ship he was flying was after them to get it back. To make matters even more complicated, the man Jacob had stolen the ship from is an infamous outlaw and mercenary named Jason Burke...his father.

Being hunted down by both the United Earth Navy and the mercenary group that called itself Omega Force, Jacob has only one chance to keep his team out of a military prison and bring down the head of the One World terrorist faction that always seemed to be three steps ahead of him...and that was only if his father didn't catch him first.

Love the series starting with Omega Force. This IMO was the best yet. Can’t wait for the next book in the series. 👏👏👏👏

Great series..

Well, most of the bad guys are dead or retiring from their office, thanks to Jacob and his crew, as well as his father. The end left it open for the next group of baddies. I look forward to the next book.

No romance and the F-bomb was used 45 times.

As for the narration: Paul Heitsch does such a great job on this series.

Best Book Yet

I love this book. Serious plot and the dark comedy was exceptionally well done. Crusher continues to remind me of a very good friend. MG reminds me of a Marine I served with. Webb's comment to Murphy that he could now "use words with more than 3 syllables and not eat crayons, was especially funny for me. I do hope though that interactions between Jason and Jacob don't happen to frequently. It would destroy the separate stories. Keep it up. This one is going in my favorites list for future listening.

Excellent series

Been listening to a ton of Sci Fi lately, and Dalzelle in my top 2 with Jack Campbell.
The fight scenes are not drawn out to add pages(minutes), there is an actual plot to all his stories, his protagonists are engaging and there is plenty of humor. Most science fiction has some sort of FTL and gravity generators, that's part of the sci fi, but the physics make sense, and the military stuff seems well enough done. No wokeness to notice. This is a good series

end of; and to a new???

a most interesting integration for a parallel story line as they share a lot of common ground and a coming of age in a dangerous universe....

Boy was that good!

Really nice and satisfying! The meet up between Jason and his sonJacob was terrific. I just love both series! I'll probably listen to this dozen's of times just like I have all the Omega Force books. I really just love this author.

The book I was waiting for...

I've read all of Joshua Dalzelle's books several times and love them so I was looking forward to the meeting of Omega Force and Scout Fleet. Without giving anything away, what a great next chapter in both series. I started out with Scout Fleet and quickly became hooked on Omega Force, Anyone into Omega Force will love this I'm sure, it's as much Omega 12 & 3/4 as Scout Fleet 3.

brilliant as usual

As usual the writer does not disappoint with plenty of good characterizations and the plot never misses a beat. Some nice twists and turns Make it a listen that's hard turn off. These books being audible make my long hours on the road more enjoyable and I find myself sitting in my car maybe an extra 20 minutes before going into calls because I don't want to miss the next segment.

really enjoyable

I enjoyed this and laughed out loud quite a bit!. Love the banter and relationships between the crews. This wrapped up nicely some story elements and I'm excited for the next. I wish it was longer but I'm happy with anything omega force related. I hope Josh keeps writing and that the books get more widely distrbuted and become well loved. A tv series would be nice!. Keep at it Joshua, you're doing good work

Great series

Good follow up to the original series. As the cast is mainly human, the stakes are a lot higher. With only one with additional powers and still not that skilled adds to the fallibility of the team. Only annoying thing which is common with most writers is the laws of physics in regards to ripping of doors etc. Great listen great action.

Uninspired

it feels as if this book was made around fixing up some dot point loose ends and a half assed attempt at fan service to the series. The hole book feels like an extended epilogue.
