Solar Search by Ross Richdale
In the last days of an interspecies war, Captain Tara Fye is given control of Yolk 3, a secret spaceship hidden on an asteroid orbiting Earth. She ordered to activate the Earth’s final defence system against the enemy of hexapods, six legged insect species and their allies, electronic entities. The planet is sealed both physically and electronically from the enemy by an artificial bubble. No spaceships, including their one can land or leave Earth. As well, no audio or visual transmissions can penetrate the bubble from either direction.
Yolk 3 is designed to maintain human life until another world is found to save humans from extinction as an intelligent life force or, if possible to return in the future to reunite with those sealed on the planet.
Tara also finds several somewhat sinister facts about her superiors, including having a computer implant installed unknowingly in her mind and that outer pods encircling Yolk 3 contain hundreds of humans in deep frozen hibernation. They include, not only scientists, engineers and medical doctors but also many young women who have been impregnated without their knowledge in the hope that future generations would survive, even if the humans on Earth become extinct.
Tara and her crew are alone but the enemy still lurks out there ready to annihilate them without mercy if they are found. Read Solar Search to discover how Tara and those aboard Yolk 3 survive a journey to unknown galaxies.
