This was definitely my favorite David R. George book in several years. My only complaint is about the structure. Each third was good, but I think it loses something read in quick succession, rather than waiting (and reading other tales of the Enterprise
?) in-between each "episode".
I see what the current title means (twice over). But can anybody see how the contract title of The Red Ensign
could have applied to the book? Because I'm not seeing it.
