  • Starship: Flagship begins a few weeks after the events in Starship: Rebel. The Theodore Roosevelt, under the command of Wilson Cole, is preparing to lead Cole’s ragtag armada into the Republic, even though he is outnumbered thousands to one. He is convinced that the government has become an arrogant and unfeeling political entity and must be overthrown.

    The trick is to avoid armed conflict with the vast array of ships, numbering in the millions, in the Republic’s Navy. For a time Cole’s forces strike from cover and race off to safety, but he soon sees that is no way to conquer the mightiest political and military machine in the history of the galaxy. He realizes that he must reach Deluros VIII, the headquarters world of the Republic (and of the race of Man), in order to have any effect on the government at all - but Deluros VIII is the best-protected world in the Republic.

    How can he approach it? Finally he hits upon the solution. Lafferty, his Republic contact from the previous book, controls a few hijacked Navy ships. The Teddy R “surrenders” to them, and they tow and escort it all the way to the heart of the Republic, to Deluros VIII itself - at which point all but a handful of volunteer “captives” move to Lafferty’s ships, and then covertly land on the planet itself.
