"Back to your planet, to your caves and dust," the aliens ordered. They were as powerful as they were evil, and Earth had faltered before them. Now the Time-deep Aleriona were tightening their grip on the universe, and all that stood between humankind and total extenction was a band of freebooters on a firestormed planet . . . and a legendary pirate ship called the STAR FOX!

Classic SF from a master of both hard SF and fantasy, by the author of the Dominic Flandry series and the Polesotechnic League.

All in all, a good book. However it has many phrases/lyrics, etc in German/French/Etc that the author seems to expect you to be able to understand. Not critical, but it might be better if you understand more than I did (which was only "petite peu")

Earth's (well, earthlings') galactic federation in a political process with another alien race. But the former captain of the military vessel Star Fox doesn't trust them. He wants to organize a mission to the supposedly destroyed earth colony to prove the aliens' lies. The government/s won't help (or allow it) so he needs to go as a renegade ... What follows is: politics, adventure, romance, piracy, and more!
