    We all have books that haunt us, right Those books that, for one reason or another, float at the edge of our consciousness, that appear in our peripheral vision but don t quite seem to register on a regular basis but once in awhile make an appearance, reminding us that they are still there and we have yet to read them Voyage of the Star Wolf has been one of those books, and in a moment I will explain why But first The Silk Road Convoy has existed for a long time, having built itself up to be the [...]

    I started this, then realized there was a prequel plus another related book, but I finally got back to it Like Star Hunt the prequel , Gerrold continues with his idea that spaceship battles would be like submarine warfare than the fighter jets we re used to seeing It s a great, very vivid and tense concept, and I liked it a lot.Where Star Hunt focused on the psychological state of the crew, Voyage of the Star Wolf uses that as a basic premise and then packs a lot story and action around that G [...]

    This is a fun space opera Gerrold, perhaps best known for The Trouble With Tribbles is obviously a Science Fiction fan of all media The book is loaded with puns and quotes from famous movies, TV and novels from the past I suspect I missed many The best, IMO, is his name for a new crew member, young, innocent, handsome Lieutenant JG, Valentine Michael Jones which I think is a hoot Another is using interocitor parts to jury rig a piece of equipment, shades of Metaluna I want to re read this just t [...]

    I can t explain why I like this so much it s written like and by an author of TV shows but it s just enjoyable, perfect escapist fluff, and delightful to do so You have your near human bad guys with all the fun animalistic stuff thrown in , your tough as a machine in ways than one captain, the idealistic but world weary XO who can t decide if he wants a captaincy or not, the near omniscient computer, and there s just enough background to make it a fun read without bogging anything down with rea [...]

    Solid story with interesting characters You can tell Mr Gerrold knows a thing or two about writing a tale from the bridge of a spaceship I will say I m concerned that the Morthans will be just powerful enough to almost always win except at the end without ever really becoming a fleshed out people, but what s a bad guy race for if not to be, well, bad guys Looking forward to the next book in the series.

    When I saw that the writer of this book was the writer of one of my favorite Star Trek episodes, The Trouble With Tribbles , I knew it would be good I wasn t disappointed Fast paced and keeps you guessing It is a great read I can t wait to read the other two books in this trilogy.

    The plot is layered with traps within traps Science fiction, yes Space opera, yes But mostly a satisfying psychological thriller.

    Interesting take on starship life The story I always heard was that it started life as a Trek script idea, morphing into an original tale.

    A friend suggested this book, and it turned out to be entertaining It feels like pulp military sci fi, and since Gerrold s background is Star Trek TOS The Trouble With Tribbles TNG you can immediately see references and character traits similar to Star Trek The storyline was quick paced, and kept me engaged There are no strong, developed female characters though so it is definitely geared for guys.After reading this 1st novel of the Star Wolf trilogy, I m eager to continue reading the series.

    The Voyage of the Star Wolf is an excellent scifi action adventure set within the confines of the Human and Morethan spheres of influence, after a significant military strike against the human interests we follow a lone badly damaged human starship LS 1187 as it attempts to return to it s base and remained undetected from the superior forces that surround it The consequences of this major engagement and this crew s actions reverberate throughout populated space and as tensions continue to rise a [...]

    I m not sure whether this book should be considered the first book in the Star Wolf series or the second Many seem to consider it as the second but the first one is also considered to be a prequel Personally I see this book as the first.It s a good book It is nothing spectacular but good The story is okay although it would have been nice to get a wee bit ship to ship action I definitely like the new captain, the Star Wolf, which they are getting somewhere half way through the book He s my kind [...]

    This was originally known as Voyage of the Star Wolf , a single book, which I read ages ago Since it became a series, I have not continued The original version was like Moby Dick in space A later version came out, being the first book in the series, with chapters added It completely changed the original story, and I was not happy EDITI was mistaken The original was Voyage of the Star Wolf , and when he chose to make a series out of it, Star Hunt became a prequel I was still disappointed that h [...]

    Written by David Gerrold, who penned the famous original Star Trek episode, The Trouble with Tribbles, the novel is about a small starship, LS 1187, who is the sole survivor of a space convoy completely destroyed by the Morthan Solidarity a race of genetically enhanced people The crew, brought home by its executive officer when its original captain was killed in the attack, are demoralized and command of the ship is given to a hard, detail driven Captain Hardesty Captain Hardesty restores the cr [...]

    The prologue about The Silk Road trading route was very promising lots of interesting exposition about the State of the Universe as well as some nice, tense moments describing an inevitable conflict Unfortunately, Gerrold lets all of that promise evaporate very early in the book by bogging the plot down with dated colloquialisms, irritating characters, and flimsy politics Things never get back on track and by the time the gratuitous and hilarious sex scene arrived, I was ready to move on to some [...]

    Classic sciecne fiction in the best sense of the word Had it not been written over 20 years ago it could be the lead publication in Neal Stephenson s Hieroglyph projecct promoting sf that brings a positive view to the use of technology in resolving problems I have not read much Gerrold besides When Harlie was One and his Star Trek books That seems to have been a mistake Reading this book put me in the mindset I often found myself in when reading the truly great, e.g Asimov, Heinlein, early Niven [...]

    It s written really well, and it s not your typical single ship defeats wave after wave of enemy ships scenario It s also not terribly exciting and the characters seem to lack some development I do like the fact that HARLIE, the articifical intelligence from Gerrold s book When HARLIE Was One , is one of the characters 73 100

    A bit too much like his other books, especially since a main character doesn t get his due for political reasons Interesting for the mention of Chtorran Good, but not especially unique Edit I re read this review a few months later and found that I could barely remember reading the book Not a good sign.

    Nick Tramdack
    Fun space opera, works as a kind of anti Star Trek in that the ship is an underdog, not the flagship, etc But on the other hand, if you don t at least kind of like Star Trek, you probably won t like this.

    Michael Griffin
    I loved this space opera novel This novel had me hooked from beginning to end I loved the story The characters were engaging Nobody took stupid pills.Now I need to read Gerrold s War Against the Chtorr series.

    Decent scifi B movie vibe Characters are all archetypical with little development, but well written There are actually quite a few interesting ideas surrounding transhumanism here, but they don t get much play.

    I started out really good with a crew bring back a damaged ship to port Then it got stupid when the author added a cyborg captain named Star Wolf , Worf from star trek but a catman , and a bunch of blue sex pot aliens.

    Jimmy Lee
    Damn I love this book This is the book that really got me into scifi Read it, if you like scifi

    Lance Roberts
    Up to Gerrold s HIGH standards though not his absolute best.Thought provoking and enjoyable while being a good space operatic romp in the vacuum.

    Great fun with a cast of terrific characters I would happily read a dozen novels with this crew

    David Buchholz
    The opening sequences in which the craft is damaged and loses its internal gravity, and the effects on its crew are pretty terrifying

    Gerrold creates a complete and fascinating future space traveling world But his characters are what keeps me reading his books So good.

    Very good space military science fiction

    Entertaining SF.

    Gerrold has a great imagination and his universes are always interesting and original to the point of, Wow.
