The series starts in todays world and through forced invention gets mankind into space colonization to save the human race. Most of the science presented is in some stage of development now.

There are a number of morale issues.

Refreshing, different science fiction. No monsters. Poses some new scientific theory to space travel that does not require a miracle like a black hole or warp in space. A textbook for colonization on a new planet.
