It is decades in the future and various companies have established mining operations on the moon. Water and oxygen have been found under the surface, sustaining those operations. Also found was “moon gold,” a fuel beyond anything imagined. Winfrey Enterprises is determined to obtain a monopoly on moon mining and is destroying the competition. Jastrow Control has given Bucket and Bandit the assignment of disarming the bomb and figuring out what Winfrey's plan is before it is too late. That is hard to do when the Jastrow team has been infiltrated.
This is an exciting prequel, setting us up for nine months later and another story. I really liked the (original) Star Trek nature of the action. I was a little disconcerted by the light hearted banter between Bucket and Bandit when others were dying nearby. Nonetheless, I like a good sci fi novel and this prequel has certainly whetted my appetite.
