About the Series: The Confederacy
A Terran empire in democratic disguise, centuries in the future. More than fifty worlds, managed (if not governed) from the Capital on Terra and controlled by the Terran Space Military (TSM). Though the Confederacy has, overall, been a positive step for humanity, its time is drawing to a close: corruption is rampant, bureaucracy reigns supreme, and even the TSM is having a hard time keeping things together.

Reviews of Sydney Chambers: Captain by B. T. Jaybush

Stormswift reviewed on Jan. 14, 2020

An entertaining read. A mixture of adventure and sci-fi.

Pirates are attacking freighters of the 16 Cygni system and killing anyone who dares to resist. Only 1 Terran Space Military warship was sent to quell the pirates.

Sydney Chambers is newly promoted to captain of the old but refurbished Cahan Morrigan and she's eager to prove herself after the recent court martial. Unfortunately she has to defeat 2 separate groups of pirates lead by: Patrick a modern day Robin Hood and the brutal Hans who is 3 steps ahead and wants to wreak vengeance on her.

This space military tale (albeit sans aliens) will definitely appeal to fans of Star Trek.

Spoilers ahead:
The references to sexual assaults of Krista were in my opinion irrelevant to the story. Too much focus was placed on the pirates' stories which was disappointing. I expected more focus on Sydney's journey as captain.
I read the books in order and found that a few pages were repeated verbatim from the First Officer book - thus deduction of 1 star.
