Thomas Aquinas, Explorer of the galaxy (Thomas Aquinas series)
A Classic Space Opera in the tradition of Heinlein, Asimov and Anderson. Join on an epic adventure of colonization, exploration and war with Thomas Aquinas and his partner Azire. It is the year 2432 and expansion into the void and discovery of vast resources and wealth and colonization are primarily handled by the Churches and religions not the governments. Aliens and their cultures are discovered and brought into the fold of our civilization. Wars are waged. Discoveries are made. Mankind adapts and overcomes. The advances and use of slower and faster than light travel to colonize the near and the far are described in remarkable detail, the math, the MATH! Beautiful and rich alien cultures are described and assimilated. And some are completely eliminated.
