INTRODUCING HONOR HARRINGTON
Having made him look a fool, she's been exiled to Basilisk Station in disgrace and set up for ruin by a superior who hates her.
Her demoralized crew blames her for their ship's humiliating posting to an out-of-the-way picket station.
The aborigines of the system's only habitable planet are smoking homicide-inducing hallucinogens.
Parliament isn't sure it wants to keep the place; the major local industry is smuggling; the merchant cartels want her head; the star-conquering, so-called "Republic" of Haven is Up To Something; and Honor Harrington has a single, over-age light cruiser with an armament that doesn't work to police the entire star system.
But the people out to get her have made one mistake. They've made her mad.

Good book son
On Basilik Station
Webster is one of my favourite SF authors. Reminiscent of Heinlein, his space operas are thought out, meticulous and full of valiant heroes we cherish (Go Nimitz!). This, the first of his Honour Harrington books, is sure to please!
Many, many words wasted on pseudo technology. Too few on telling the core story.
