I picked this trilogy up at least a decade ago, but it didn't leave
much of an impression. Figured I'd go through it again. Conclusion:
it's a pleasant but lightweight space-opera (unsubtly "Star Wars less
stupid") which I will probably have forgotten again in another decade.
Good points: the authors know both medical practice and how life
really works in the military. (Sure, it's a very U.S. Navy sort of
far-future starship military, but if Battlestar Galactica can be
functionally identical to the U.S. Air Force...) And the plot threads
do come together very tidily at the end.
I guess at some point (in the next decade) I should read the follow-on
