Mutineers Moon

Mutineers' Moon

Plot summary Edit

The book’s premise is that the moon is a massive space ship controlled by a self-aware computer that wants its rightful crew back aboard.

The book begins with a prologue recording a mutiny aboard the planetoid -sized Utu -class starship of the Fourth Imperium (a more-than-55,000-year-old technologically advanced multi-star system empire), the Dahak. led by its Chief of Engineering, the ambitious and psychopathic Captain Anu. Anu's ostensible reason for mutiny is to lead his followers to refuge on some remote planet where presumably the genocidal wrath of the "Achuultani", a mysterious alien race that periodically exterminates all intelligent life it can find, and which has destroyed the previous three Imperiums, will pass over them.

The loyal crew is taken by surprise, and unable to defeat the mutineers. Faced with no choice, the captain orders Dahak to execute "Red Two Internal"—a command which will flood the entirety of the interior of the vessel with extremely deadly gases and compounds; this action will force both mutineers and loyalists to the lifeboats, and the vessel will then, acting on its other orders from the captain, allow back in the Dahak only the loyal crew and blow the disloyal members out of space. Red Two unfortunately entails the death of the captain as well. Because of his death, he is unable to command Dahak to destroy the mutineers as they leave aboard warships, not lifeboats, and the captain is equally unable to undo Anu's systematic sabotage of the power generators, intended to kill Dahak by starving it of power and thereby rendering it open to conquest by Anu's forces.

Unfortunately for Anu, Dahak' s computer systems catch the sabotage before it utterly wrecks all the power plants. but the damage is so severe that it is forced to cease all communications and non-necessary expenditures of power. Indeed, the damage takes decades to repair—by which point none of the loyal crew is still alive or able to contact the Dahak. Outnumbered and outgunned by the mutineers, the loyalists have been systematically sought out and exterminated. This places the ship in a dilemma in which it cannot return to the Imperium as it has been ordered to, but nor can it exterminate the mutineers as other, equally important, orders dictate. This impasse lasts for approximately 50,000 years, until the Earthling's early space program sends up one Lieutenant Commander Colin MacIntyre to map the dark side of the heavenly body Dahak had camouflaged itself as—the Moon. as a "dress rehearsal" for a similar trip scheduled for Mars.

His mission is hijacked by Dahak and his death is faked; had MacIntyre returned with his data, Dahak ’s cover would have been blown. While aboard, Dahak (the AI. not the vessel proper) explains the situation to MacIntyre, and prevails upon him to, as a descendant of the loyalists, become Dahak ’s newest captain, and to quickly exterminate the mutineers—quickly, because Imperium installations are being methodically destroyed, sure signs of the beginning of the latest Achuultani incursion. MacIntyre reluctantly accepts. The first step to making him the true captain is to massively revamp his body surgically, granting him superhuman resilience, speed, and strength, in addition to the built-in electronics granting matchless control of Imperium technology.

While Dahak has known for thousands of years where Anu's forces have bunkered up—under the South Pole in Antarctica —their base is protected by extremely strong force fields, force fields so strong that to penetrate them and destroy the base would require Dahak' s heavy weaponry, which would inevitably kill a significant percentage of the human population of Earth; an untenable action, to say the least.

MacIntyre returns to his old home to renew contacts with his elder brother, Sean, and to enlist him in a scheme to discover the mutineers' agent in the space program. It initially succeeds, but when he and Sean attempt to contact the agent, they discover their scan of the space program building was detected, and that it was a trap. MacIntyre and Sean fend off some of the mutineers (at the cost of Sean's life), but MacIntyre is rescued by an acquaintance, who sends him through a tunnel where he is captured by another group of mutineers.

This group, led by former missile tech Horus, was a dissident splinter faction of Anu's, which turned against him after the mutiny. Despite supporting Anu during the mutiny itself, Horus and his crew committed a double mutiny against Anu and fled into hiding on Earth. Once they reached Earth, they entered stasis so that the crew would be able to survive however long it would take for civilization to reappear on Earth (Anu at the time enforced primativism). Now, with civilization and technology emerging on Earth, his group has begun a passive, behind-the-scenes war against Anu. Because they are heavily outnumbered in weaponry, they have been forced to always play it very carefully. As a result, the crew of the battleship has created a huge network of humans, many of whom are descendants of Nergal 's crew. However, the arrival of the MacIntyre means that the end has begun, for Dahak has at last taken a hand in the game. Eventually, this group and its battleship, the Nergal. joins MacIntyre, and they embark on a grand plan to destroy Anu: first, they rapidly and effectively destroy a number of important installations that Anu's terrorists and other forces are based out of (convincing Anu to withdraw all of his important personnel back to the main base), then they have their agents inside the Antarctica base steal the codes to gain access for them; finally, they fake a major defeat, and when Anu relaxes, certain that they were cowed and hurt, their now-at-liberty agents send them the codes and they launch a full assault, backed up by Dahak's orbital weaponry.

The assault costs them dearly, but Anu is killed and his forces captured or dead. With the full revelation of Dahak ’s power, the world's governments have little choice but to submit to the Planetary Governor MacIntyre. However, Colin has little time to unify the world, because the Achuultani draw ever nearer, and the Imperium is silent, even when Dahak ’s communication systems are repaired. At the end, MacIntyre leaves the world under the care of old Horus, and departs for the nearest Fleet Imperium base, hoping to call upon Imperial assistance.

Concept and creation Edit

Author David Weber says the genesis for this book began with a question: "Assume that Earth doesn't actually have a Moon, but rather a giant starship disguised as our Moon which has been there for at least 50 or 60,000 years. Where did it come from, why did it come here, and why hasn't it left?" Weber says the answer to those questions built the foundation for this book and its sequels. [1]

Mutineers' Moon
Dahak #1
David Weber Riverdale: Baen, 1991. ISBN: 0-671-72085-6. Pp. 315

Review © 2007 Branislav L. Slantchev

Before Weber hit it big with Honor Harrington, there was Colin MacIntyre, a hot-shot NASA pilot whose training flight over the Moon. well, over what we think is the Moon but what in fact is Dahak. a humongous battleship of the Fourth Imperium that had stood a silent watch over the Earth for over 50,000 years. Yes, you read that right: our moon is actually a warship. The original moon was apparently destroyed when this impostor replaced it (although we are never really told just what sort of havoc an object with such mass would have on this planet before it got rid of the old Moon). It's not exactly clear what business the Imperium has building these monsters but at any rate, it is here and it is self-aware.

Which means, of course, it's probably getting lonely after all these thousands of years. But it's actually worse, for Dahak is on a mission from god (well, okay, on a mission from his original Captain whose last orders could be treated as the word of god for all practical purposes as far as the ship is concerned). So even though it's not the case that "in the beginning was the Word," it most surely appears that in the end it will be. For the instructions to Dahak are quite clear: it is to orbit around Earth until it destroys every last one of the mutineers that attempted to take it over but failed. Since these guys fled to Earth, Dahak must now just wait for them to surface so it can kill them.

Simple? No? Weber then takes us on an increasingly unbelievable journey where he tries to weave hare-brained conspiracy theories that link world governments, Islamic terrorists, and assorted warmongers to these mutineers who are led be a certifiable nutcase by the name Anu, which I am guessing is short for Anubis given the blatant references to Egyptian religion elsewhere in the book. Basically, the bad guys come out of kryo every century or so to wreak havoc and steal some fresh bodies, but other than that they seem content just biding their time beneath the ice of Antarctica (thank god Weber didn't involve Atlantis in this but he came close). This and battle a splinter mutineer group whose sole purpose in this is to provide the muscle for MacIntyre, making his defeat of the bad guys a bit less unbelievable. as in Earth not resting on the back of an elephant resting on the back of a tortoise but on turtles all the way down.

Fundamentally nothing more than a brain candy, this first entry in the Dahak Trilogy fails on just about every level. It's an easy read but the characters are just flat and uninteresting. The one glimmer of hope dies very soon during an attack on a house, and it's all downhill from there. The love-story between MacIntyre and Jiltanith (with her exceedingly annoying tendency to speak what the Cliff's Notes tell us was Shakespearean English) is juvenile with all that hatred getting turned into passion. There are several interesting but underdeveloped characters like MacMahan: Weber could have explored the moral ramifications of the plan the good guys implement instead of just dismissing them with a short note about them thinking about those. Or maybe Weber truly believes in that memorable sentiment echoed in Verhoeven's Starship Troopers . "We're in it for the species, boys and girls," so the survival imperative trumps any sort of artificial morality. Or does it? If we survive in that way, what are we going to be?

The novel is pretty weak even in the military department where Weber usually excels. The plan of the counter-mutineer mutineers reeks of implausible logic, especially because its success depends entirely on the enemy drawing appropriate conclusions (which he nearly did not and would not have had his staff been less afraid of him). Maybe Dean Acheson was right when he noted that "military recommendations are usually premised upon the meticulous statement of assumptions that as often as not are quite contrary to the facts and yet control the conclusions." Of course, with Weber playing God in his own novel, none of these military plans are subject to the classic Clausewitzian friction that would have undone them all in real life.

The final gripe about this novel is that there's just way too much going on for a such a simple and short work. The galaxy-spanning Fourth Imperium, the relentless Shiva of an enemy in the Achuultani, all the changes that earthlings must adapt to. It's all too much and it happens in too short of a time. In fact, it's as if the main confrontation is going to be between whatever remains of the Imperium (probably nothing) and the other aliens, so this action on Earth is merely a sideshow, a stepping-stone toward the larger stage. Since Earth would have no chance against the Achuultani unless the mutineers are defeated, their end is foreordained by the existence of two other novels after this one. Ruins the suspense a bit, I would say.

'NO MASTERS! NO GODS! Dare to Dream,' by Norman Nawrocki

If you're feeling powerless in front of lying politicians, thieving corporations, and Jeep Cherokee mindsets, then read anarcho-cabaret author/agitator Norman Nawrocki's NO MASTERS! NO GODS! Dare to dream.'

NO MASTERS! NO GODS! Dare to dream' is Nawrocki's third collection of urban tall tales, short fiction, 'news' poems, dreams, rants and rhymes. It pulls together new unpublished work and pieces from some of his theatre musicals and cabarets. The result: another timely shot of what he calls 'creative resistance' for all those aching for radical social change.

He writes about 'velorutionaries,' 'east end kids,' squeegee punks old and new, hackers, mutineers, and plain hungry folk who question the right of 'neo-neanderthals' in suits and ties to institutionalize misery. In 50 pages of sometimes satiric, sometimes poignant prose, he exposes the everyday injustices that ordinary people suffer in the name of 'profits' and greed and offers a vision of how things could be different.

Nawrocki writes about the growing frustration and anger of those below who are tired of State platitudes and corporate apologists, and want radical changes - now. He also writes about lousy lovers, Québec nationalism, homophobia and the future of Montréal.

David Weber - Example Problems

David Weber

David Mark Weber is an American science fiction and fantasy author. born in Cleveland. Ohio. In his stories, he creates a consistent and rationally explained technology and society. Even when dealing with fantasy themes, the magical powers are treated like another technology with supporting rational laws and principles.

Many of his stories have militaristic. particularly naval. themes, and fit into the Military science fiction genre. He challenges current gender roles in the military by assuming that a gender-neutral military service will exist in his futures. As he often places female leading characters in what have previously been seen as traditionally male roles, he is able to explore the challenges faced by women in the military and politics.

His most enduring character is Honor Harrington whose story, together with the "Honorverse " she populates, has been developed in 12 novels, and four shared universe anthologies, as of spring 2004.
