Question: Scify book about military ship captain that retrains misfit crew from the military and meets aliens

Home » Science Fiction & Fantasy » #21264

Asked by attrianna on Mon 17, Apr 2017 11:55pm :
Ive been searching for this series and i cant find it and its driving me
nuts. Ive read about 4 or 5 books so

What i remember about the series from is the following:

Scify space ship military captain gets sent misfit crews that he retrains.
Ie. Crew member starts giggling at the worst time so captain has certain
steps to help the crew member overcome that particular quirk. And on it
goes with each crew member. Eventually the best of the navy also wants to
be in his ship.

There is a genetically engineered genius multi billionaire thats more like
a teenager that ends up liking this captain and starts to follow him in his
personal yatch. Who also ends becoming a semi embassador because an alien
ends up visiting the humans area of space.

Humanity cant pass by a particular boundary in space. Turns out eons ago a
virus swept through all populated areas and humanity had been part of the
galactic community and quarantined themselves in our part but now we cant
meet other aliens and humanity forgot about the aliens.

The human governments know that aliens exist and some aliens visit the
tourist places in the human part of the galaxy.

One book in particular was focused in going to an area of space where
roumors had that a big entity was scaring ships from that part of space and
the captain ship went to investigate. Turns out it was a human ship
protected by aliens from.the virus.

Phule's Company by Robert Asprin?
"After being court-martialed by the
Space Legion for ordering the strafing of a treaty-signing ceremony,
multimillionaire Willard Phule receives his punishment: He must command
the misfit Omega Company on Haskin’s Planet, a mining settlement on the
edge of settled space. At his duty station, he leverages his personal
money and a knack for managing people to get the company to come
together as a unit. Phule convinces the governor to leave the contract
for an honorary duty up for competition between the Space Legionnaires
and the Regular Army. The Army sends some of their most elite troops to
take part in the competition, but Phule’s company operates with their
own unique tactics…."
