Joshua Dalzelle about this book: In the 25th century humanity has colonized hundreds of worlds and has enjoyed centuries of peace and prosperity with all the room and resources faster-than-light travel has now afforded them. The Black Fleet Trilogy is the story of what happens when all that changes and humanity is faced with an unknown and terrifying enemy. In Warship we see what happens when a single, obsolete starship meets this enemy for the first time. A single captain must make hard choices that will have profound ramifications for the entire species.
This is a story I had originally written in the late 1990's as a single, enormous volume. I was never happy with the result and I always wanted to come back to it some day and write it as I saw it in my head. Warship, and the rest of the Black Fleet Trilogy, is that story distilled down to its bare essence and rebuilt from the ground up. The result, I hope, is a military scifi tale with a bit more grit than my other scifi series.
