Not on Sawyer's "A" list!

I have nothing but praise for Sawyer and I find him one of the best Science Fiction writers ever! However, this book was a major letdown, lacking the interesting characters and intriguing plots of some of his other books. Also, in other books, Sawyer does a far superior job explaining complex science. In this book he makes the scientific explanations difficult to follow unless you happen to be Stephen Hawking.

The plot itself reminds me of a long episode of Star Trek TNG. You have the starship searching the galaxy with both human and alien crewmen united by a planet Commonwealth (did you say Federation?). They ultimately must save the galaxy by the book's end.
