about half way through Harbinger, the first vanguard novel. So far the description of the station and its inhabitants is reminding me a lot of Babylon 5.
Kinda like a TOS-era DS9
A lot of things remind me more of B5 than DS9 - the diplomatic delegations, the interior parks, the trams to get about, the rougher unfinished areas away from the core, the raised officer level in the operations centre, etc.
Not saying thats a bad thing, just that its reminiscent.
And it is somewhat all alone in the night
