    "Crowning Moments of Awesome, FOR EVERYONE"

    Not to give the ending away, so this sentence is your spoiler warning. This is the hardest earned happy ending that was earned. They were chased around the galaxy, abused by older races, bullied by their peers, lied to by libraries, and adopting some friends that they had to protect or see them enslaved by others. Then at the end, they finally get to a place where they could have been ok, but they have to fight another battle.

    DAVID BRIN just let someone, anyone be happy! I don't care who you choose, but just give someone a nice comfortable place to ride off into the sunset.

    "The last book, it ends pretty good"

    If you liked the first 5 books then I will assume you will like this one so this is not going to be much of a review other than to say how it ended.

    The ship Streaker goes off of the planet Jijo and back in space and is still trying to reach Earth - its cool because meet with various orders of life: Hydrogen Breathers, the Retired, Machines, and the Transcendent.

    The series ends pretty well but I was a little confused with the whole series, I was left wondering mostly about the alien races and how to distinguish between them - the narrator did a good job at making different voices but I still had trouble knowing weather they were Humans or Aliens, and if Aliens what race were they.

    in the end I was still a little confused but I should have gotten the book "Contacting Aliens: An Illustrated Guide to David Brin's Uplift Universe" maybe that would have helped - I will go and read these books again in the future and will get that book then also.
