Good old WildJedi kind of story.
Meh. I finished reading it and, well, I'm still waiting for the actual story to happen.
Not enough to dig out my meat hooks though.
"Our posturings, our imagined self-importance,
the delusion that we have some privileged position in the universe,
are challenged by this point of pale light.
Our planet is a lonely speck in the great enveloping cosmic dark.
In our obscurity – in all this vastness – there is no hint that help will come from elsewhere to save us from ourselves."
- Carl Sagan
