The Steven Gordon series is a classic space opera series, written in an older style, that isn’t too heavy on the science, and concentrates more on the people. In this adventure, Steven Gordon, a child protégé, was severely hurt before he could accomplish the things he was destined to. Years later, while working for a friend as a night security guard, he is almost squashed flat by an alien craft, as he patrols the civilian space centre he works at. Thus the adventure begins. In the first book, the brain damage Steven acquired from his accident years before, is repaired by the alien craft. Conflict ensues with President of the USA as he wants to keep the ships, who were unmanned, and their technology for himself and his people. When a Japanese beauty becomes captain of a second ship, the race is on to avoid a global conflict.
Steven and the crews of both ships battle to prevent this global conflict. As the adventure continues, in the following novels, they are drawn farther from Earth. War with an unknown species, that wish to eradicate all life on Earth. New and formidable allies. A heavily populated galaxy that man has to now find a place within.
