From Booklist

Entertaining and episodic, Starplex is a tale of interstellar exploration and adventure rather like a reconceptualized and debugged Star Trek. In the twenty-first century, the has both developed faster-than-light travel and contacted nonhuman intelligent races. Starplex, under the command of Keith Lansing, is one of the contact makers. Lansing faces hostile crew members, the personal and cultural idiosyncracies of nonhumans, the problems of first contact, and a marriage that may be deteriorating. No one, probably including Sawyer, will claim great originality for the yarn. Technically, it is good rather than great, yet it emphatically works, will draw readers, and may be the opening of a long-running series. Roland Green

Review

"The ultimate grand tour!" - Jack McDevitt
"For big-time interstellar adventure, look no farther."
-Gregory Benford
"Starplex should gladden the hearts of readers who complain that nobody's writing real anymore, the kind of story that has faster-than-light spaceships and far-off planets and interstellar combat. half a dozen sweeping questions of cosmology (not to mention everyday ethics and morality) while keeping the story moving ahead full speed.
Enjoy."
-Asimov's Science Fiction
"Highly Recommended."
-Library Journal
