Publisher's summary

Pell's Station, orbiting the alien world simply called Downbelow, had always managed to remain neutral in the ever escalating conflict between The Company, whose fleets from Earth had colonized space, and its increasingly independent and rebellious colony worlds. But Pell's location - - on the outer edge of Earth's defensive perimeter - makes her the focal point in the titanic battle of colony worlds fighting for independence.

Long on Fi, short on sci.

More of a political story then as Arthur Clark might have said, exploring the awe and wonder of the universe. To my ear it was hours of neighbors endlessly arguing.
