I've read all of the books in this series. While the early books, such as this one, showed great promise for a good read by the third or fourth book I was getting darned tired of self-doubts and self-recriminations of the main character. Combined with the religious aspects of the series this turned a promising character and interesting saga into a chore to finish. While some might enjoy this type of story, I've found that for myself it simply isn't my cup of tea.

Imagine a space-bourn Hornblower... An inexperienced midshipman thrust into command by the deaths of officers above him and saddled with a restless crew and demanding passengers... and his own demanding conscience

This first in a series depicting the career of interstellar naval officer Nick Seafort thrusts the inexperienced midshipman unexpectedly into a position of command, where the fate of an entire spaceship of colonists rests in his hands.
A hideous accident kills the senior officers of UNS Hibernia--leaving a terrified young officer to save three hundred colonists and crew aboard a damaged ship on a seventeen-month gauntlet to reach the colony of Hope Nation. With no chance of rescue or reinforcement, Nicholas Seafort must overcome despair, exhaustion, guilt; he must conquer malfunctions, mutiny, and an alien horror beyond human understanding. He must save lives. And he must take them, in the name of duty.
