    Great read.

    The story begins on December 3, 2018. Captain David Alexander of NASA awakens after seven years of cryogenic stasis. His ship has finally reached Saturn. NASA is thrilled to learn that David survived cryo. Yet before David could begin his work, his probes detect two unknown ships. ........................... Due to the Morian pirates, a missile has detonated within a bore-hole, causing Commander Zara Darien's ship, the Stardust, to change directions. She ends up stranded in an uncharted area of space. Worse, the ship that had also been with Stardust has crashed. Zara's father and crew have died. Zara is alone, except for a small monkey-like creature and MAI, the ship's artificial intelligence. .......................... When MAI's warning shot goes bad, Zara must rescue David from his doomed ship. Her law demands she protect his life, which means returning him to Earth, his planet. However, her law also demands that she not interfere with his planet's natural growth. To keep the first law, she must break the second. Zara must handle first contact with the sentient beings. This causes lots of problems. It becomes more complicated when Zara and David begin to learn about each other, and let their mutual attraction of each other grow. .......................... As the two communicate, David learns that the Morian and Dacron races have hunt down most of Zara's people. The Shimurans are near extinction. David and Zara soon realize that their two planets can help each other. But not everyone feels this to be a GOOD idea. .................... **** There is more going on, involving an angel and a ghost, but I cannot elaborate without giving something vital away. Therefore, you must read the story to find out what I am referring to. One thing is for certain, you will never get bored. An excellent debut for author Ann O'Bannon. I look forward to the next book in this series. ****

    Back cover blurb:

    Was it chance or destiny that brought them together? Captain David Alexander, of the NASA space shuttle Independence, awoke after seven years in cryogenic stasis to discover he wouldn't survive the trip home. Then, in answer to prayer, a UFO was sighted in the vacinity. To his chagrin, Commander Zara Darien, of the Shimuran Starship Command, royally botches 'First Contact' when she shoots him from the stars... With no foundation for trust, find out how they overcome their animosity, join forces and alter Earth's future. In so doing, they unknowingly take the first step in fulfilling a thousand year old prophecy --The Shimuran Legacy has begun!
