This is a good concept but... no women? At all? The cast so far is fairly large and one big sausage fest. As a woman and an aspiring scientist, if this doesn't change it's going to cost the book at least one star because honestly.

What the fuck? Your first female character shows up and she's the nagging wife of a male character. Said male character then THREATENS TO CUT PARTS OF HER FACE OFF to get her to shut up and when that doesn't work, bribes her with jewelry, which does. Asimov, were you even thinking when you wrote this?

Kogiopsis (view spoiler)

Kogiopsis I have not - I haven't read nearly enough LeGuin. But I've heard good stuff about the Hainish Cycle.

Brian IIRC there is no major female character until the second and third books, and even then she is more of an adjunct character than a prime 'cast member'...

I honestly might not make it to the second and third books, in that case.
