4.5 stars, only because it gets a little laggy 3 quarters in, and they do things that I am sure are against NASA’s rules. Despite that, this is a very challenging and informative book with great characters. In fact, the characters were so great I almost didn't care about the aliens. However, MDR's anthropology training shines through, and we get some really hard SF, which is compelling in its own right.
