  • Solution to Over-Population?

    This trilogy supposes that a future global government determines that advanced science, particularly in genetic engineering and biochemistry, will destabilize earth's population. To protect the twenty billion humans on earth, it is deemed necessary to permanently exile the 2000 brightest scientists of these fields, along with their families. They are sent to live in isolation on a space station, and the decision is made to convert this station into an interstellar transport after the exile is in effect. The first book is embarrassingly simplistic, but books two and three pick up the sophistication and are of greater interest.

  • Could be better.

    Interesting premise.I rather liked the dystopian feel of the first novel. There is however something of a disconnect between the various volumes of the trilogy.None of the characters we had grown to love was ever brought out of cold sleep.Plot development remained rudimentary.I do love Ben Bova but I quite believe he could have done better.

  • A good story by Ben Bova. It is a change from his usual writings of near earth and not too distant future. In all, it was a good read.

  • Exciting

    This was an exciting story. At times hard to put down. The technical descriptions were distracting. Mainly because so much was old.

  • Must be Early Writing

    This does seem to be the caliber of Bova's later work, so I'm guessing that it's early work that has been put together into one story. It's not great but also not terrible. There are a lot of concepts I would have liked him to explore, but were skipped over. All in all it was a somewhat entertaining classic 50's style SciFi story.

    Thanks for your feedback!
