But first she had to choose a human partner--male or female--to share her exhilarating escapades in space. Her life was to be rich and rewarding, resplendent with daring adventures and endless excitement, beyond the wildest dreams of mere mortals.

One of my all-time favorite series. The brain and brawn teams running humanitarian missions is just an excellent concept and makes for exciting adventures and great characters. ( )

3.5 stars. I was pleasantly gripped by the unique premise and dramatic plots in this episodic story. The only unfortunate bit of this book is how poorly it has aged with its language around the disabled humans who become brainships and the relationship Helva has with men. It's clearly a product of its generation of the free-love 60s and today serves as a good lesson in how far the underlying mindsets of the feminist movement have advanced. It's also hard to miss the differences in the style of the popular genre, which relies on a lot more dialogue than you see nowadays in best-selling sci-fi. I've only ever tried to read Pern by McCaffrey, and it didn't do it for me. Had no idea she wrote sci-fi as well and was very surprised by how much I enjoyed this. It's so good, I feel it deserves to be rewritten/retold with an updated take on Helva in which she isn't primarily obsessed with finding the right dude to ride inside her. This would make a great miniseries. ( )

I hadn't read the Brainship books in years so I decided it was time for a re-read and I happy to report that they stood up to the test of time. I really enjoyed the story and found myself very interested in the characters in these books. I am super glad I read them again. ( )

I just love these old-time optimistic science fiction books! ( )
