A cheap faster-than-light drive system has permitted the population of the galaxy. Each planet has become the home for a particular social group. Four hundred years after the diaspora, a spaceship from Earth visits three of the planets, the first steps to unifying the galaxy under a new Empire. Things do not go entirely as hoped, as the incompetent military authoritarians of the ship encounter three very different societies.

Twenty-three years after the novel was published, it won a Prometheus Hall of Fame Award.
