Item description for The Middle of Nowhere by David Gerrold...
The second installment in the acclaimed Star Wolf trilogy, this tale pits the captain of the limping Star Wolf space vessel against an "imp," a parasitic biocomputer that is creating havoc and pirating vital information from its position inside the ship. As the imp gathers information to aid the impending attack of the enemy Morthan fleet, Captain Korie struggles with both the internal problems caused by the imp, and the threat of an oncoming Morthan attack. Classics of military science fiction, the Star Wolf trilogy combines fast-paced action with powerful studies of the military character.

Miserable Sequel Feb 28, 2004
AFter the VOYAGE OF THE STARWOLF, I expected the crew to come back to base, get refitted and go after the bad guys. Instead, they remain stuck at Star Dock, savenging their ship to others and playing cat and mouse with a Morthan Imp.
One of the premises of the book is that the humans have superior technology to the Morthan wannabes, but if one Morthan can take down a complete starship, then why do you need all these power warships. All you would need are stealthy transports to get your monsters close.
I realize that any Sequel needs a certain amount of repitition to link to a previous book, but it seemed like a good quarter of the books was the same thing said slightly different.
On whole an unsatisfying read.
Fantastic speculation on war in space Aug 27, 2003
Although this book is a continuation of of another novel (The voyage of the starwolf), it easy to grasp the events that occurred in the first novel without reading it. the events take place onboard a star faring destroyer which is subjected to sabotage by the enemy, and how the crew deal with it. Although this does not seem exciting, but the speculation of the author on how a deep space faring ship would probably be built is appealing to SF fans who insist on finding new and original ideas in every novel they read
The STAR WOLF series defies the limitations of its genre. Jan 5, 1998
"The Middle of Nowhere" accomplishes what few science fiction novels attempt, to explore the aftermath of the "great battle" and its lasting effects on survivors. The starship LS-1187 has limped back to starbase after surviving a battle which destroyed the entire armada to which it had been assigned. The crew, exhausted and elated by their survival against all odds, is treated to the coldest of receptions, while doubt and suspicion hang over the actions and dispositions of their ship. The author gives the reader an intimate view of his character's motivations and emotions, something often lacking in the genre. Add to this a more scientific rendering of space warfare (rather than the romanticised STAR WARS variety.) "The Middle of Nowhere" is engrossing and sometimes enlightening, always entertaining. You needn't have read the other books in the series "Voyage of the Star Wolf" and "Star Hunt" to enjoy this book... but when you are finished with "Middle of Nowhere" you will find yourself seeking them out!
