Commodore Jack Romanoff and his crew won the battle for New Copenhagen but lost their quantum drive in the fight. Now they must free the human prisoners and strengthen their defenses before the Locusts trap them.
If it’s not already too late.
Only the alien hyperdrive they recovered offers a chance to get a new quantum drive and more missiles before time runs out. To master it and solve the mystery of the invasion, they must open a dialog with the aliens and get their willing cooperation. Somehow.
With no time to waste, they’d best be persuasive.
Two centuries after the Confederation staved off an invasion by the robotic Locusts, Captain Jack Romanoff faces mandatory retirement from an ever-shrinking Navy. Actions speak louder than words. The Confederation doesn’t think the Locusts are coming back.
But what if the politicians are wrong?
Snared in a scheme he doesn’t fully understand or trust, Jack gets his promotion, but it comes with a catch. With a crew of rejects, he must restore the most powerful warship humanity has ever built, after centuries of neglect and decay, before time runs out.
If he fails, humanity might not need to worry about history repeating itself ever again.
Be where your enemy is not. – Sun Tzu
The time has come for Commodore Jack Romanoff and the crew of the battleship Delta Orionis to strike back at the robotic Locusts. He’s outgunned, outnumbered, and commands a battleship flown by battered and bloodied reenactors and trainees.
Yet they must win.
The Locusts control New Copenhagen, but that’s the only place they can get nuclear warheads for their missiles. They must launch an alpha strike to take the system and hold it against all comers. If they fail, they lose their most potent offensive weapons and leave billions trapped under the invaders’ robotic heels.
They must not fail.
His grandfather used to tell him fantastic stories of spacemen and monsters, princesses and galactic knights. Little did Van realize, the old man's tales were more than fiction. They were real.
Hidden beneath the old barn, Van’s legacy is waiting: a starship, not of this world.
With his combat AI, an android bird named Perry, Van takes his first steps into the wider galaxy. He soon finds that space is far busier and more dangerous than he could have ever conceived.
Destiny is calling. His grandfather's legacy awaits.
Embark on the adventure of a lifetime with USA Today Bestselling Author J.N. Chaney and Terry Maggert in this brand new science fiction series. If you're a fan of found spaceships and galactic quests for glory, this might just be the story you've been waiting for.
~2022 Dragon Award Nominee for Best Military Science Fiction~
After successfully striking back at the alien invaders, Commodore Jack Romanoff and his crew have liberated the cluster capital at Argent. For the first time, it seems like they might be getting their feet back underneath them.
Keep your enemies closer.
When the secretive Poseidon Group—the people behind the conspiracy that threatened the very security of the Confederation—attacks, Jack and his allies must stand back to back against the traitors. Can they unmask the traitors before a knife in the dark leaves them defenseless?
Trust no one.
Commodore Jack Romanoff and his merry band of ragtag Navy rejects—skilled yet young war reenactors, a rescued Navy crew, and a Confederation spy—have rescued more than two hundred civilian ships and escaped a massacre in a battleship over two centuries old.
Too bad they blew a fusion plant doing it.
Trapped in a deserted system with the Locusts after them, they have a hard deadline to sort out the mess. Standing in the way is an arrogant Navy captain unwilling to bend his stiff neck, and the man’s unexpected—and unwelcome—allies.
Yet clever friends and shocking secrets may still turn the tide.
Jack and his crew have only one chance to get it right. To do that, he must bind them all together with bonds of blood.
Five years ago, aliens destroyed a carrier and its airwing at Jupiter without warning.
Since then, the Earth’s nations have learned to work together, and they want to know more about the aliens who appeared, attacked, and vanished without a trace.
The Americans have provided a new carrier and a slew of space fighters. Chinese engine and gravity technology has made going after the invaders possible. And the Russians have developed a new control system for the American fighters that will give the craft never-before-seen capabilities.
Most importantly, this blend of technology has allowed for pilots to connect directly to their ships, amplifying their reflexes and giving them the ultimate edge in combat.
Mankind’s next war is upon us, and Uplink Squadron is the tip of the spear.
It’s time to plug in and save the world.

Betrayal from the shadows.
When someone unexpected conspires against him, Jack must keep his ship and crew united and safe. If he fails, someone powerful that should have had his back will stick a knife into it, and the aliens will enslave or exterminate them all.
Honor or victory? Can he have both?
Now that August Walton is dead and new information has come to light, Cole Riker and his team of misfits are finally back on the cosmic highway to another unknown location.
This time they might actually have a shot at completing the mission and getting back home in one piece. Victory isn’t all it seems, however.
Finding a graveyard of ships belonging to Gray's people is just the first sign that things are about to go downhill. What Cole discovers inside is more bad news. Dead Anypsians, locked down systems—and the fun doesn't end there.
A new threat looms on the horizon.
With the Sol System several galaxies away, Cole knows it's not really his problem. Humanity is safe for now and he has a mission to complete. The last thing he needs is to get involved in another dispute that has nothing to do with him.
But sometimes doing nothing is worse than doing the wrong thing.
