Publisher's Summary

By the 30th Century, conditions on Earth had become hopeless. A quantum leap in life extension, once thought to be man's ultimate salvation, instead produced over-population, plague and famine...and eventually, complete social collapse. In many civilized regions of the world, man resorted to the unthinkable: cannibalism. In 2828, the United Earthian Foundation was formed to ensure the survival of man kind. A small group of earth-born scientists were launched aboard five large starships and assigned distinct sectors of space. Their mission: find another habitable planet for the continuation of the human race. By 2949, the Helix had entered the orbit of the Planet Vultrex. The mission was proceeding as planned until the crew disturbed what lay entombed below!

Ham city!

I managed to listen to this entire audio book and survived... barely. It certainly won't be getting played again!

Yuck!

I thought this would be a great radio show type story, and it does have good effects and cast, but the story is set SOOO far ahead in the future and has SOOO advanced humanity to the point where the characters have no down to earth commonality to the listener... I found myself totally uninterested in the the hedonistic portrayals of the future of man. The culture was so out of touch with today's culture that I found the whole cast of characters quite unattractive and alien. Not a good pick.
