The Ninja Captain's Landing Port


Our own Ninja Captain is flying the blogosphere on a tour of his Cassa Series. I'm very pleased, he's landing his ship here today. Here he comes now. Welcome, Captain. It's an honor to have you.
Races of the Cassa Universe
When CassaStar begins, there are nine known races: Cassan, Vindicarn, Narcon, Fesell, Arellan, Charren, Torbeth, Jerril, and Lorvendera. This expands to ten in CassaFire with the introduction of the Tgren, and there is hint of yet an eleventh race.
While aliens will most likely come in a wide variety of appearances, people still relate best to other humanoid creatures. We need that familiar ground. So I didn’t want to vary far from it.
I did give some of the races unique, non-earth features though. Vindicarn are bald, ash-black in color, and their skin wrinkled like a Mexican Hairless dog/Sphynx cat mix. Arellans are slender with pale hair and almost bluish skin.
A little different, but still human enough!

Series Prequel
By
Alex J Cavanaugh
Genre:
SciFi Adventure, Space Opera 
The
prequel to the Amazon best-selling Cassa series!

A

pilot in training...
Fighting

the odds, Byron is determined to complete Cosbolt training and join
the Cassan space fleet. Poised at the top of his class, only one
situation holds him back–his inability to work with anyone in the
cockpit. Byron’s excellent piloting skills won’t be enough
without a good navigator…

CassaStar
CassaStar
Series Book 1 
To
pilot the fleet’s finest ship…
Few
options remain for Byron. A talented but stubborn
young man with a troubled past and rebellious attitude, his
cockpit skills are his only hope. Slated to train as a Cosbolt
fighter pilot, Byron is determined to prove his worth and begin a new
life as he sets off for the moon base of Guaard.
“…calls
to mind the youthful focus of Robert Heinlein’s early military sf,
as well as the excitement of space opera epitomized by the many
Star
Wars
novels. Fast-paced military action and a youthful
protagonist make this a good choice for both young adult and adult
fans of space wars.” -

CassaFire
CassaStar
Series Book 2
From
the Amazon best-selling author -
CassaStar was just the
beginning…
The
Vindicarn War is a distant memory and Byron’s days of piloting
Cosbolt fighters are over. He has kept the promise he made to his
fallen mentor and friend - to probe space on an exploration vessel.
Shuttle work is dull, but it’s a free and solitary existence. The
senior officer is content with his life aboard the Rennather.
The
detection of alien ruins sends the exploration ship to the distant
planet of Tgren. If their scientists can decipher the language, they
can unlock the secrets of this device. Is it a key to the Tgren’s
civilization or a weapon of unimaginable power? Tensions mount as
their new allies are suspicious of the Cassan’s technology and
strange mental abilities.


CassaStorm
CassaStar
Series Book 3
A
storm gathers across the galaxy…
Commanding
the Cassan base on Tgren, Byron thought he’d put the days of battle
behind him. As a galaxy-wide war encroaches upon the desert planet,
Byron’s ideal life is threatened and he’s caught between the
Tgrens and the Cassans.
With
a talent for worldbuilding and a compelling cast of characters, Alex
J. Cavanaugh combines high powered space battles and the challenges
of family dynamics to provide readers a space opera with heart.” -

    1. The first book took years, the second two months, and the third about the same. Sadly I've been working on the next one for about two years now...

  19. It's easier to relate to science fiction races if they're somewhat similar to humans.
