Description

It was supposed to be an easy job: find the Dark Star Revolution Starships, destroy them, and go home. But a booby-trapped vessel decimates the Meridian Alliance fleet, leaving Serengeti-a Valkyrie class warship with a sentient AI brain-on her own; wrecked and abandoned in an empty expanse of space. On the edge of total failure, Serengeti thinks only of her crew. She herds the survivors into a lifeboat, intending to sling them into space. But the escape pod sticks in her belly, locking the cryogenically frozen crew inside. Then a scavenger ship arrives to pick Serengeti's bones clean. Her engine's dead, her guns long silenced; Serengeti and her last two robots must find a way to fight the scavengers off and save the crew trapped inside her.

Professional reviews

"What a wonderful match of writer and narrator! Elizabeth Wiley's warm voice, varying as it needs to from character to character, is rich, nuanced, loving (where appropriate), and measured. "Serengeti" is the name of an A.I. "crystal matrix" brain that is the core of a massive battle starship. When an enemy engagement goes wrong, Serengeti struggles to save her crew, both human and machine, in a remote region of space. Every voice is believable. Every thing has a personality. They're heartfelt, well written, and expertly portrayed. Let's hope that actual A.I. evolves in the direction presented here. D.W.
