4.0 out of 5 stars More romance than sci-fi March 14 2004
This is a sci-fi...fantasy novel, and is rather unusual in the way it moves between the various genres. It´¿s a dual romance story, that of Dr Eden Fynn and space pirate Jace Serafina and Captain Tasha Sebastian (Sass) and her commanding officer Admiral Branden Kel-Paten, who is a cyborg otherwise known as 'the tin soldier'.
The novel moves along at a good pace and has interesting main characters. The thing I found most disconcerting about this book was the lack of any real development for any secondary characters. At times it´¿s like the entire universe consists of four people and two cats despite the fact you know that they are living in a heavily peopled environment like a space ship.
In many ways this is more of a character novel than it is an SF story despite what appears to be a strong SF universe at the start of the story. If you like the novels of Catherine Asaro you may enjoy this book, though that strong SF universe gets badly diluted half way though the book.
COMMAND PERFORMANCE ends with an unexpected story twist and there is a 'to be continued' note stating that the story will continue with another, yet to be published novel, called COMMAND DECISION.

5.0 out of 5 stars A remarkable piece of work! Oct. 23 2003
By Detra Fitch TOP 500 REVIEWER
The story began on the Triad Huntership Vaxxar. Captain Tasha "Sass" Sebastian had many secrets in her past. And that was where she wished them to remain! Her best friend just happened to be the ship's Chief Medical Officer, Dr. Eden Flynn. Stories abounded about the trouble the often found themselves, as well as, the unique ways they got out. Eden was an emplath with telepathic abilities which greatly helped her in her profession.
Admiral Branden Kel-Paten was referred to as the Tin Soldier. As a teen he had become bio-cybernetic, more computer than human. He was not supposed to feel emotions. So if anyone found out how he felt about Sass, he would be in for a "Section Forty-Six."
After surviving a vortex, they picked up the human pirate Jace Serafino, who was a rogue telepath with a deadly brain implant. Jace and Paten had known each other before. Neither like the other. However, after being attacked by Illithian fighters, they were thrown into an unknown section of space where they must put aside their differences if they intended to survive!
***** A remarkable piece of work! Sass and Eden each have a pet that resembles a cat with telepathy and intelligence. I especially loved those two fury creatures! Each character has their own quirks and personalities, that readers can easily come to care for. The only problem I have found with author Linnea Sinclair is that she cannot write fast enough for me. Highly recommended! *****

5.0 out of 5 stars A fabulous foray into a world of wonder... Dec 4 2002
I have to agree with the many other reviewers who found this story exciting, romantic and a can't-put-it-down read. I would also add that Ms. Sinclair has managed the difficult task of blending solid, 'hard' sci-fi with a wonderful romance, and sacrificed neither. A major accomplishment from a very talented writer.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful Nov. 22 2002
I'm not going to describe the plot again, since the other reviewers have done it. But, I will tell anyone who likes Space Opera that this is one of the best I have read. It's funny, poignant and action packed. Don't miss one of the best books I have read in a long, long, time.
