Mini-Review (click to view--possible spoilers)

Pro: They set out to found a colony, and, by gosh, they succeed.

Con: There's no tension in the story at all. We never learn to care about the characters, nor do we feel particularly sorry for them at the end. It's vaguely like reading about the doings of two goddesses.
