I found this review written in 2013 just couple of days ago. I think it’s worth the read. The entire article can be found here:
“What happens when a pair of enlisted sailors are loaned to an alien vessel? Shenanigans, obviously. Temporary Duty is a unique look at first contact through the eyes of a low ranking member of the military – essentially your typical everyman.
The story picks up after a visit to Earth by aliens. Thankfully they haven’t come to conquer; they’ve come to trade. But what does humanity have to offer a space-faring species? Weapons of war, naturally. It turns out humanity is really good at kicking ass.”
