Lucky Starr and the Rings of Saturn Book Review Summary

This book is the most political of the Lucky Starr stories. The Sirians, claiming that the moons of Saturn are empty, have colonized one of them. Naturally, this gets Earth upset, and Lucky is left to figure out what to do about it. The Sirians claim that any empty world can be colonized. So Lucky does something clever; he arranges to "colonize" one of the moons himself, with one of his Council of Science buddies, and when the Sirians raise a ruckus, he shows them to be the hypocrites they are; and the galactic UN votes to force the Sirians to retreat.

Best Scene: When the Sirians capture Lucky's pet, Bigman, and the Sirian leader tells the robots to destroy Bigman, claiming Bigman isn't really a person, because he's so short.

Detailed plot synopsis reviews of Lucky Starr and the Rings of Saturn

In the last book in the series, Lucky and Bigman try to regain control of one of Saturn's moons which has been taken by the Sirians on the basis that it is empty. They and Wess (who does not get on with Bigman to say the least) chase a Sirian towards Saturn who then crashes his craft after releasing a capsule which must be found. They leave Wess inside Mimas and surrender to the Sirians. The Sirians want Lucky to become one of them, but show disgust towards Bigman, because he is too short. Lucky's plan involves making the Sirians realise how stupid their arguement was in the first place and there is plenty of action, humour and plotting throughout the book.
(you'll have to read the book to find out who gets the capsule!)
