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

Pro: The basic idea is a good one: a colony ship heads off, not realizing that there's a perceived threat to all of humanity.

Con: The writing is very poor. Narrative infodumps, as-you-know-Bob infodumps in the dialogue, and extensive editorializing ruin this piece.
