Returning from a 30-year long-haul mission, the crew of the Ea come out of stasis to discover their world ¿ Bh¿Harat ¿ dead, and screamer satellites strung around it to warn any potential visitors away ¿ saying ¿hazard plague hazard plague hazard plague¿ over and over. Left with no choices, however the crew descends to the surface to try to ascertain what has happened, and to see if they can come up with a way to survive. Can they find a cure for the plague? Is there any hope for Bh¿Harat?This was quite a story ¿ somewhere between hard sci-fi and space opera, but eminently readable by anyone. The plot moved ahead briskly, with plots and counter-plots and counter-counter-plots running amok ¿ at the end, there is no way to tell who is the villain of the piece. I thought that things were left open for a potential sequel ¿ or maybe we¿re left to determine ourselves how things would proceed from here. Fans of science fiction will love this story ¿ do yourselves a favor and check it out.

Returning from a 30-year long-haul mission, the crew of the Ea come out of stasis to discover their world - Bh'Harat - dead, and screamer satellites strung around it to warn any potential visitors away - saying "hazard plague hazard plague hazard plague" over and over. Left with no choices, however the crew descends to the surface to try to ascertain what has happened, and to see if they can come up with a way to survive. Can they find a cure for the plague? Is there any hope for Bh'Harat? This was quite a story - somewhere between hard sci-fi and space opera, but eminently readable by anyone.
