Publisher's Summary

Expanded and enhanced as of January 22, 2018.

In the fourth book of the Colony Ship Vanguard series, Paul, Gretchen, and Brinley search for a way to reconnect with the artificial intelligence system, Tiffany. Along the way, they encounter many dangers and unknowns, including this message: “The limits to the lattice of compeers have not been established. I am unable to make conjectures to answer your inquiry. Vanguard systems are interactive and evolving for enhanced performance and operations in service to the core programming and core mission of the Vanguard. In prime condition, the science and engineering of the lattice of artificial intelligences includes: ethics, reasoning, knowledge, planning, learning, communication, perception in nonphysicality, perception in physical realms, and the ability to direct and manipulate objects in service to the mission of the Vanguard. The Vanguard itself is sentient when all systems are operational. Core programming revolves around penultimate mission objective: the Vanguard will successfully traverse space to the Westerhuis 9 system, locate best planetary body, establish functional colony. All other objectives secondary. The lattice of compeers is essential to reaching that mission objective.”

Good solid Sci-Fi

Searching the Vanguard: Colony Ship Vanguard, Book 4. More adventureon a colony ship. This is good "lost in space" sci-fi (remember that old tv series) and it's more about the ships crew interactions - no aliens in this one. A good adventure tale.. John Thorntons series has re-ignited my love of sci-fi. A great listen. I was given a free copy of this audiobook at my own request, and voluntarily leave this review.
