Item-Level Details

Translated Into: Baakra está en peligro (Spanish)
Rýchlejší ako svetlo (Czech)
User Summary: You must prove your worth to join the elite Space Hawks squadron, then help a race of ape-like aliens defend themselves against gigantic space locusts.
Fireguard's Thoughts:

Faster than Light is a decent sci-fi gamebook, although it's hurt somewhat by a problem that plagues the Space Hawks series: long stretches of text between choices. This balanced out by the world (and beyond) of Space Hawks being somewhat more vividly described than your average CYOA. All in all, not a bad start to the series.
