The Terran exploration vessel Streaker has crashed in the uncharted water world of Kithrup, bearing one of the most important discoveries in galactic history.nbsp;nbsp;Below, a handful of her human and dolphin crew battles armed rebellion and a hostile planet to safeguard her secret--the fate of the Progenitors, the fabled First Race who seeded wisdom throughout the stars.

This is a book I've loved every time I've read it. It's fun to read a story of underdogs that use their skill and imagination to do what other's thought impossible. This book is full of adventure, cool characters in aliens and Earthlings, political manipulations, and daring maneuvers that always impress. I recommend this one to all science fiction lovers and all readers.
