The former SSBN <i>Nebraska</i> has been converted, using mostly garage mechanics and baling wire, into a warp ship ready to go out there.

That is until they land on an alien planet, get partially wiped out and then load back up again. Ranging in topics from the best gun to kill armored space monsters to particle physics to cosmology to health and beauty tips, <i>Vorpal Blade </i>is a return to the good old days of SF when the science problems were intractable and the beasts were ugly. The monkeys are out in the space lanes and ready to rock. As soon as they get ather roll of duct tape.
