The Sixth Ship by Stephen Alexander
A passing black hole forces humanity to send the largest ships ever conceived, the Great Journeys, deep into the abyss of space to find new worlds to live on. Families such as the Grovers of Ventura city are divided between those that stayed behind and those that braved the journey to the worlds found by our real-life telescopes. The brothers of the divided Grover family made a pledge- to one day reunite the family if they survived after 2166.
Now it is 2505 and humanity has joined the powerful alien Horto Confederation. Carl Grover learns of his family’s pledge and of the Sol Sphere’s first FTL capable ship. Led by the Horto’s best engineer Antathon and joined by a reprobate cyborg with an attitude, they go forth to find human colonies on the trail of ‘bread crumbs’ left behind by their ancestors and the ships themselves. Can they find all of humanity’s Great Journeys on the red-dwarf orbiting worlds that became our last hope? Or will others find them first?
