    Phssthpok the Pak had been traveling for most of his thirty-two thousand years. His mission was to save, develop, and protect the group of Pak breeders sent out into space some two-and-a-half million years before.

    Hugh says: "Protector - Classic of Known Space"

    Overall

    The Pak were evidently Larry Niven's speculation on why old age is so crippling and the point of it. The concept is a lot of fun and is well developed; the thoughts and motivations of Pthssthpok (sic?) the Pak are worked out in entertaining detail, and the 2nd half of the book is basically how a battle might actually be fought in space with tools and weapons not much more sophisticated than we have now; it is horrifying, claustrophobic and wonderful! The characters are typically Niven; compassionate and smart enough to solve their problems in clever ways. This is one of my favorite books ever.
