    Story

    The Clone Wars have yet to erupt when Jedi Master Jorus C'baoth petitions the Senate for support of a singularly ambitious undertaking. Six Jedi Masters and 12 Jedi Knights, including Obi-Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker, and 50,000 men, women, and children, will embark on a mission to contact intelligent life and colonize undiscovered worlds. But the mission is secretly being orchestrated by an unlikely ally: the evil Sith Lord Darth Sidious.

    Preston says: "Great story, enlightening for fans.HATE ABRIDGED"
    "Too many missing parts...."
    Overall

    Three stars is generous for this one. Far too many details are left out of this abridged version. I am a definite fan of Zahn's previous SW titles and this one just felt incomplete. Buy the paperback!

    At first, only a few things are known about the celestial object that astronomers dub Rama. It is huge, weighing more than ten trillion tons. And it is hurtling through the solar system at inconceivable speed. Then a space probe confirms the unthinkable: Rama is no natural object. It is, incredibly, an interstellar spacecraft. Space explorers and planet-bound scientists alike prepare for mankind's first encounter with alien intelligence.

    Peter Tersteeg says: "Excellent story, terrible naration"
    "what is this??"
    Overall

    The only reason I gave it two stars and not one is because it was written 30 yrs ago. Narrator was one of the worst I've listened to. Maybe he was the reason it was so bad? Laughable accents and horrible flow. Book itself was "eh". There was just nothing there - booooring story and non-characters. How could this book possibly win the above-mentioned awards?? Maybe it was the only sci fi book written that year?? :)
