    1. This is a better book than "The Genesis Quest" - for one thing, there is no human conflict, which is not as interesting as the conflict in this book.After a journey of 37 million years from the Whirlpool Galaxy to our own, humans find an engineering project on an even larger scale than Larry Niven's Ringworld, and more complex. The Author also explains how the project was carried out, which Niven does not do. They also discover some interesting species there. There are several scientific errors, [...]

    2. Not as good add the first book, but a worthy readFirst books often set up the story, and so it's a challenge for authors to overcome the powerful inertia of discovery in the first book. And to create a new story, which stands in its own right. Many authors become somewhat episodic, like with the "Harry Potter" series. This once ties up the fate of now immortal Man, finding out what happened to Earth, and then deciding exact to do. It is probably much tougher than writing for more mortal characte [...]

    3. Many centuries ago, an alien race known as the Nar was able to recreate human beings from genetic code, broadcast from Earth into outer space by a beleaguered humanity. They allow a group of humans to travel millions of light years through the galaxy, in order to discover what has happened to the original occupants of planet Earth. However, none of the human participants of the expedition are prepared for what awaits them at the completion of their journey

    4. I read this around the same time that I read Tau Zero. Similar story of people heading off at relativistic speeds and leaving their pasts millions of years behind.I like the notion of "it kinda sucks here right now, let's just give it a coupla dozen million years and come back when it settles down".

    5. Part II in Moffitts series called Genesis Quest. The concept is still brilliant about humans mizing with another race. But just like in book 1 of the series Moffitt's writing doesnt do the concept justice.

    6. Underneath the constant displays of "Look at this cool technology!" "Here's something about SPACE!" "What if in the future they had THIS technology???", there's actually a pretty pleasant and optimistic vision of how humans and human society could be.

    7. This book was outstanding. Even better then the first. Long distance, intergalactic travel of nearly whole civilizations. And, aliens! What could be better than that.Decided to read it based on the first Genesis book by Moffitt.

    8. The worst thing about this book is that it really left me wanting more! This was much better than the first book (although I really liked that one too) and although it didn't end on a cliff hanger, you can't help but want to know more about how things play out.
