Incidentally, the Galactic Federation has an established set of guidelines in which each of its members offer a particular service or practice a certain profession restricted to their race alone. Keeping his eyes on the prize, Dal is later accepted into Hospital Earth and is excited to be one step closer to turning his dream into a reality. Even more remarkable is the fact that he is the first non-human to receive medical training. However, not everyone is thrilled by Dal’s laudable desire to become a physician, as he is viewed as a threat to Earth becoming a full member of the Galactic Federation. Experiencing many inconveniences and discouragement at numerous occasions, Dal nevertheless brushes aside the negativity and manages to get through his training. Despite his efforts, Dal soon realizes that his troubles have just begun, as he must face countless obstacles, trials, and setbacks in his mission to become a full-fledged star surgeon. Comprised of a gripping plot, memorable characters, and an exciting setting, Star Surgeon is sure to engage any fan of the science fiction genre, as Nourse successfully interweaves variety, description, and detail to create a captivating piece that is out of this world.
