||Fairly decent book. A lot goes on, but I think Thompson manages to keep everything following without it getting too confusing. Debtor's Planet is an interesting ride, introducing a new planet and it brings back Offenhouse (the frozen 20th century business man from The Natural Zone). The only problems with this book is the author added a little to Earth and federation history which conflicts with what we see later in Enterprise, DS9, Voyager, ect. Also the characters behave a bit weird sometimes. But this are minor errors in an otherwise good book. I recommend checking out Debtor's Planet.
