This covers first contact between the Altairians and the rest of human space, and the story follows the voyage of the diplomatic mission. Specifically, it follows the mathematical genius Tambeth Rahen who’s made the whole voyage possible and just so happens to be an alien. As always, things never go as expected and Tam finds herself from the run from the authorities and desperately trying to find her way off Earth before anything worse can happen.

Annoyingly, this is my second best developed setting after 2100, which just goes to show creativity can never be convenient. It includes the first live alien species in Vast Worlds, the heavily engineered ‘Ewts’ who owe a lot of their current sentience to the Altairians. Tam may also manage to start a war, though I’m not sure when.
