Wow. Does this have a sequel? Cause it really seems like it should. In fact, it seems almost a perfect prequel to something like Battlestar: Galactica!Humanity finds the first obviously intelligent signal from another planet, but electrical power is at such a premium that they can't convince politicians to "shout" back at their close neighbors. They can, however, somehow convince the political leaders of every powerful country to give them all they H-bombs so they can send a generation ship to another distant star to collect anti-matter. Makes perfect sense. A little conspiracy sprouts up and the travelers decide to just add another step to their trip so they can go meet their neighbors directly.And then it ends just so abruptly. (view spoiler)[ There's hints throughout the story that humanity is in the middle of some very serious wars, but between one scene and the next, human life on Earth is wiped out and the starship got a bit lost and has to just find a new planet to live on.(hide spoiler)] After all the buildup, it was a bit confusing, and because of that I can't give this book my full endorsement.So, overall, it was good. This story was released as a podcast by the StarShipSofa, for those of you who enjoy audiobooks.
Hard Sci-Fi about space travel.
