“Let it be our pride that we ourselves may put meaning into our lives, and sometimes a significance that transcends death. If a man is fortunate he will, before he dies, gather up as much as he can of his civilized heritage and transmit it to his children.”
– Will and Ariel Durant

Earth Quest by Ginny Brinkley and Kathleen Perry
Earth Quest by Ginny Brinkley and Kathleen Perry

Imagine what life would be like if our beloved planet were to become uninhabitable, either because of our own failings or from forces beyond our control. Would we have sufficient technology to be able to travel the unfathomable distances in space for years, perhaps thousands of years, in search of a new homeland?

The Enlilliians, remnants of an ancient civilization, experienced such a fate. A select few had escaped from their planet before it was incinerated by their ever-expanding sun. These survivors, confined to their giant spaceship, hoped that their search for a new home – and a new food source – would end within a few generations. Their Quest seemed hopeless. That is, until they came across a little planet called Earth – and a biologist named Dr. William Lance.

This could have already happened…
Is the ultimate fate of all intelligent life to roam endlessly in space?

Earth Quest is a compelling story by gifted writers (Ginny Brinkley & Kathleen Perry) that chronicles the epic voyage to Earth made by the survivors of an advanced civilization from their doomed planet. Ahead of us in their technological progress by hundreds of thousands of years, they, too, found violation of the light barrier to be out of the question. However, they found a means of travel compatible with their technology, thus enabling the adventure awaiting you in Earth Quest.
