Captain John Powers is on what turns out to be his final charting mission with his ship and STARCORE. When the message comes in that the USS PERFORMANCE is to be decommissioned at the end of the current mission, John starts the process of shutting down the ship. The crew is now given the chance to reflect on what being a member of starship has meant to them along with how the various ship's missions affected them personally. Find out how a crew deals with the news of being decommissioned and John who puts in his retirement papers for the last time. Join the captain and crew for their last voyage together. However, it is John who finds that he must now face retirement, alone and the ultimate personal crisis of his life. A medical diagnosis of Multiple Sclerosis, which even 22nd Century medicine cannot cure yet, adds to John's sense of aloneness. This book tries to capture the spirit and warmth of the human heart.read more
