Putting these nits aside, this is a very serviceable space opera that has some genuinely cool ideas. The main one is that in the far future, when SETI-type radiotelescopes scour the heavens, they detect human communications -- the notion being that today we hear nothing "out there" because humans are one of the first intelligent species and have not yet settled other star systems. Since I happen to believe this, this novel found in me a sympathetic and interested reader.
Not bad at all, and a fun read for those of us who like an easy space opera novel. RJB.
