Fireguard's Thoughts:

Space Fortress is a bit of an up and down thing. First, the down. Your first mission in the book actually has nothing to do with the space fortress: you're assigned to capture a group of space pirates who've stolen a high-tech ship that allows them to raid other ships with impunity. They had me doing the exact same thing to get into the Space Hawks in the first book.

That sort of leads into the up, though, as this is realistically about the last time they could've included space pirates as villains. Space Fortress is the book where the stakes start to raise for the series as we first hear about Nemesis, the ultimate evil, here. The residents of the Space Fortress are memorable and very alien, and it was fun encountering them.

So while the part with the space pirates was kind of lame and redundant, this is a step up in the series.
