Humanity is finally going to reach beyond the home planet and investigate deep space. One project, designated Noumenon, will travel to and return from a variable star that may confirm the existence of other intelligent life in the universe. The voyage, undertaken by a convoy of nine ships, will take centuries in ship time, with thousands of years passing on Earth. The crew consists of clones of individuals selected for their DNA after a scrupulous review of personal and family backgrounds for health and psychological stability. The challenges faced will cause the crew to adapt and change, leading to a new form of human society. Foremost on everyone’s mind is - will they make it? What will they find when they reach their destination? Once the mission is completed, what will they find upon returning to Earth?
