    ePUB Robert J. Sawyer à à Starplex Epub ☆ starplex mobile, Starplex eBook So far all that they could make out was a series of maddeningly vague shadowsStarplex is just an absolute plethora of big ideas AnabsolutePLETHORA And by “big” I mean mind BLASTING and challenging So how does one go about reviewing something like this? It’s basically a “greatest hits” of cosmological ideas with elements of Star Trek The author intentionally draws parallels with Star Trek Starplex is an exploratory vessel albeit one that specializes in First Contact situations The Red Deer Press edition that I own includes a diagram of the bridge and a layout of the ship which went a long way in assisting me to visualize some of the events being depicted In a galaxy connected with local Solar System “shortcuts” wormholes that can only be

    ePUB Robert J. Sawyer à à Starplex Epub ☆ starplex mobile, Starplex eBookThough written in 1995 this Hugo nominated story is stylistically like those of the older 'golden age' era of the 50's rather than the sophisticated character driven sort of modern type The likes of editors such as Campbell Jr or Frederik Pohl of Galaxy and IF would surely have jumped at serializing a story like this It's good fun old fashioned fast paced 'spaceship scifi' with creative aliens grand battle scenes worm holes in this case actually termed short cuts time travel green stars popping out from nowhere This also has much of AC Clarke's optimism and sense of wonder to it yet Sawyer manages to make it all his ownThe pros are not uite as polished as they are in later Sawyer novels but the ideas are plentiful and the scope as astronomicalA very entertaining earlier effort by Robert J Sawyer

    ePUB Robert J. Sawyer à à Starplex Epub ☆ starplex mobile, Starplex eBookPretty good albeit super short It's impressive that Sawyer can pack as much in to a 300 page novel as would take other authors 5 600 pages But despite the amount of action and uestions and answers it still felt like it was lacking something Maybe taking a slightly slower pace would have lent the action and revelations a little weightHoly crap though what action There are a handful of big space action seuences and a particular battle scene in the back half of the novel was jawdropping in its inventiveness It makes battle scenes from recent space set movies eg the JJ Abrams Star Trek movies look simplisticOther things I liked The alien races were pretty well fleshed out as were the dolphins slightly different from the uplifted dolphins of David Brin's books and not actually uplifted There was a real sense of di

    ePUB Robert J. Sawyer à à Starplex Epub ☆ starplex mobile, Starplex eBookThis was a stereotypical sci fi book of old fun science shallow characters and anthropomorphized aliens Now I remember why I never read sci fi as a kid it was kind of bad back then and this novel is a throwback to those times While Sawyer tries to make the main character feel like a real person his efforts are mainly around the captain of the ship wanting the pretty young scientist instead of his wife no new insights or even an

    ePUB Robert J. Sawyer à à Starplex Epub ☆ starplex mobile, Starplex eBookI thought this novel was tons of fun I listened to Sawyer’s novel Factoring Humanity a couple weeks ago and it couldn’t have been different from this one Factoring Humanity is an intimate near future story that deals with big ideas but seen sort of on a small scale Starplex on the other hand is a big action packed space opera Sawyer is great at both of these kinds of science fictionThere are things in this novel that seem kind of ridiculous dolphin fighter pilots dark matter that well that’s a surprise but I was enjoying myself so much I was open to all of it Can’t wait to read the rest of Sawyer’s workI listened to this in audiobook and thought the reader did a great job

    ePUB Robert J. Sawyer à à Starplex Epub ☆ starplex mobile, Starplex eBookThis was truly an incredible book Starplex was a rare exploration of the Space Opera sub genre and as Robert J Sawyer intended did not focus on a military plot as the central theme but rather a peaceful group of scientists who's mission was to make peaceful contact with other races via a vast network of 'shortcuts' or stargate type devices Yes there is certainly spac
