I spent ten years in the infantry and seeing something that looks close to an M on another planet kind of warms the coal chunk that I call my heart.

That being said, Galaxy is a bit of Space Opera that encompasses military SciFi, interaction with other humanoid species and the understanding that we may not always be the biggest. There is also a segue into time travel or reality distortion. I found the book to be a short and fun read and I recommend it to those who want a brief escape without getting bogged down. I was so dragged into this book. I found it to be a great read and am so looking forward to the next book. Thank you.

They later escape and team up with Charlie of the Jupiter colony and Martinex of the Pluto colony, forming the Guardians of the Galaxy to fight the Badoon. For the next seven years, the four survivors attack the Badoon's outposts in the solar system.
Yondu and the Guardians team with the time-traveling Thor , and battle Korvac and his Minions of Menace. They battle Taserface and the Stark, and defeat the Stark. Since his newfound people will not accept his bionic weapon-hand, Yondu allows the Guardians to use their advanced medical technology to restore his flesh-and-blood hand. During their farewells, Vance apologizes for what he had thought was unacceptable treatment of Yondu during their earlier adventurers. The Earth version of Yondu has been identified by writer Sam Humphries as "the great, great, great, great, great, great, great grandfather of the Yondu in the original Guardians of the Galaxy and Guardians Yondu finds Peter Quill when his ship malfunctions and strands him on Earth.
After Yondu frees himself from his restraints and attacks Peter, he gives him a choice between letting himself be released into space without more trouble or execution.
Peter instead asks to join his crew. Yondu is initially skeptical of this idea, but after he learns Peter, like him, is a homeless orphan, Yondu allows him to stay on the ship with the Ravagers as their cleaning boy. Peter uses the opportunity to learn everything he can from space. As a member of the marsupial alien race of the planet Centauri IV, Yondu possesses an intuitive mystical "sixth sense" perception that permits him limited empathic relationships with other lifeforms. The higher the lifeform, the more limited is his empathic potential. Additionally, Yondu possesses an intuitive rapport with nature, particularly with his own world, but also with any world that still possesses natural wildlife.
With this rapport, he can sense incongruous elements foreign bodies or substances or focus on specific elements within the whole such as the location of a given plant. He is also sensitive to mystical beings and forces and is able to detect their presence and activities without effort. By going into a trance, Yondu is able to replenish his own inner strength by communing with natural forces. Yondu is an above average physical specimen of his race. He has slightly more strength and endurance than the average human male.
As a hunter, Yondu is an expert in the use of bow and arrow. His ability to whistle with a range of four octaves aids his archery see Weapons, below. The native Centaurian language is a system of grunts, clicks, and whistles, but Yondu has managed to master the English language, although it is painful for him to speak for too long without resting his throat. He is an excellent hand-to-hand combatant, and a highly skilled hunter and tracker.

He has extensive knowledge of the social and religious customs of the natives of Centauri IV. Yondu uses a 5-foot 1. A yaka arrow can actually change its direction but not speed in response to certain high-octave whistle-sounds some Centaurians can produce. Yondu is so skillful at controlling his arrows, he can cause an arrow to return to his hand or weave its way through a crowd of people without touching them. He carries about 20 of them at one time. In Secret Wars , Yondu utilizes his expertise in archery by shooting "drone-arrows" to give the Guardians an eye in the sky. Yondu's right hand is replaced for a time by a bionic device called a weapons concealment appendage, a metal cup replacing his right hand.
The device can release from within itself a number of weapons, including a mace, a hatchet, a scythe, a barbed spear, and others; when not in use the weapons are concealed within the appendage at a reduced size, until enlarged by Pym particles. Yondu's bionic weapon-hand is later replaced with a duplicate of his original hand. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
