Follow the adventures and career of Xiu-Li "Mariposa" Chen from crewper to Captain as she and other humans venture forth into a sixty light year bubble of local space that will become the Human Sphere, once humans join the mysterious Assembly Of Sentients. Xiu-Li Chen and several friends and colleagues are instrumental to many of the pivotal events along the way, and must deal with all of the complex results afterward. She is one of only two survivors of the first actual "alien encounter" with another sentient intelligent species - and eventually she must not only negotiate with them, she becomes embroiled in their internal politics, along with her first officer Commander Ecurba, who has several of his own adventures as well.

Fleet service in space, in the best traditions of Pope, O'Brian, and Forester.

Review by: Bill Hacker on Oct. 5, 2012 :
not a critical review, I just know what i like! I find this series to ve very entertaining. on small point, tho. I find military rank structure confusing. officer ranks go ensign, Lt (jg), Lt commander, commander, etc. However, super lt commander Bugs (in Pase Time)is compared to army SGT MAJ or Navy Master CPO. So, is Bugsy a high ranking enlisted guy or a medium rank officer? Keep them coming, I have them all.
