Readable, although had a couple of physics errors, like needing to 'get back to speed' after cutting off the acceleration on a shuttle (no acceleration equals no perceived gravity was right, though). Some of the people made some decisions that seemed non-typical for them. One such thing was the conference on Babylon 5, although when you accepted that, the rest was quite believable. Mainly a Talia Winters - Michael Garibaldi novel. The events take place after "Points of Departure" and before "A Race Through Dark Places".
