BOOK 1 OF THE CONTINUUM (Maiden voyage of the Armageddon) The Armageddon has the huge-ship, sweeping panorama, feeling of Battlestar Galactica, as well as the tense bridge scenes which became the hallmark of Star Trek. However, unlike either of those works. The Armageddon gives us as much a view of the aliens as it does the humans. Indeed, you just might come away from this book liking the Hykonian Admiral, Algol. If so, it's not an accident - there's no rule that only humans can be heroes.
