by Robert J. Sawyer

Robert Sawyer does space opera. Actually, that should be did space opera. In the intro he said that Starplex was his swan song in the sub-genre. But for me, who has only read his later works, it was something brand new. Anyway, Starplex is the tale of Starplex, a starship manned by the various species of the interstellar Commonwealth who together explore the wonders of the galaxy. "Star Trek done right," he called it. I don't know if I'd go that far in agreement, but it was a well written tale with interesting characters, a mystery, some action and dolphin pilots. (Maybe that's type casting, but I liked the dolphin pilots.)

Check it out.
