Tau Ceti: A Ship from Earth

by George T. Hahn (Author)

Amidst secrets, Tau Ceti discovers a forbidden link to survival.

Book Description:​

A ship from Earth is coming, but it’s not what they expect
Patrick and Susan have enjoyed a relatively peaceful life on the colony of Tau Ceti 2, twelve light years from Earth. However, everything changes when the starship Asimov arrives.

Asimov is unlike any other ship that has graced the Tau Ceti colony in the past, and when it announces a new project—a groundbreaking device called a “Link,” designed to facilitate faster-than-light communication between the colony and Earth, eliminating the isolating twelve-year message delay—Susan volunteers to assist.

Susan discovers that the library ship, designed to house all of Earth’s knowledge, was programmed to keep much of its knowledge from the colonists—information that could help grow the colony.

Forbidden knowledge and hidden truths become a problem. The forbidden knowledge, once revealed, is the key to growing the colony, but the hidden truths threaten that growth.

Many among the colonists are suspicious of Earth’s intentions. More immediately, is the other colony settlement—the Ellis Research Station two hundred miles from Grissom—supporting Earth’s plans?

Can they uncover Earth’s endgame amid Asimov’s vast archives, or will they become pawns in a battle that forever alters the colony’s future?
The first novel in the Library Ship Saga, a fascinating voyage into the future.

On a visit to old Sacramento with my family, an exhibit on the influence of the Wells Fargo wagon on the frontier made me think about how it would be for colonists in another star system without faster-than-light travel. After retiring from my engineering career in 2009, I used that inspiration and published the Tau Ceti trilogy: “A Ship From Earth,” “The New Colonists,” and “Tau Ceti: The Immortality Conspiracy.” That effort spawned new ideas for the universe I had created, and the two Methuselah novels, the Capek novella, and the Ambassador novels followed, with a third Ambassador novel scheduled to be released this year.
