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

Humans and aliens having children? Humans breeding their livestock with local creatures? Transportation technology that accidentally turns the moons into sentient creatures?

Even if you can get past that, there's still no story here. Derthye and Ycliss have almost no problem over the eggs--he even eats them himself--and his death occurs years later for other reasons.
