  -This reminded me of the "masterpiece" known as Battlefield Earth.

  This might be my favorite out of the space ranger stories.

  I hate this story with an unbridled hate.

  Laughed out loud at the "been a while since I drove a stick shift" remark. These aren't as good as, say, a Byrne FF tale but I am finding The Thing a rather enjoyable series overall. Kinda with the flavor of the Silver era. Definitely not something that engenders unbridled hatred. I reserve that for MTU and Mantlo stories.

  You can tell this was written in the 80's... well, at least I can since this was my generation. All these trials seem to be covering griped Ben has had since the beginning.
