Bart Steele has just graduated from the Academy and qualified as an Astrogator. Instead of getting a berth on a human ship, however, he disguises himself as an alien Lhari and signs on to one of their ships, risking his life to break the Lhari's monopoly on intergalactic travel by finding out what element is missing from human attempts to copy the Lhari warp drive.


I got this as an e-book, as a matter of curiosity; the premise sounded interesting, but I knew what I was getting into: this was written in the Sixties. The level of writing is for teens, at least it struck me that way. Classic Space Opera with a young man, his friendships, a moral, and a happy ending. Not the best thing ever, but not bad.
