When a new race of aliens stumbles upon the ancient star gates that make interstellar travel possible, humankind sends a team of scientists to study a newly discovered planet populated with an alien society in which everyone agrees on the truth

McMillan Palgrave
Humankind has expanded out into interstellar space using star gates-technological remnants left behind by an ancient, long-vanished race. But the technology comes with a price. Among the stars, humanity encountered the Fallers, a strange alien race bent on nothing short of genocide. It's all-out war, and humanity is losing.

In this fragile situation, a new planet is discovered, inhabited by a pre-industrial race who experience "shared reality"-they're literally compelled to share the same worldview. A team of human scientists is dispatched-but what they don't know is that their mission of first contact is actually a covert military operation.

For one of the planet's moons is really a huge mysterious artifact of the same origin as the star gates . . . and it just may be the key to winning the war.


Blackwell North Amer
Humanity has expanded into other solar systems using the remnants of the ancient technology of star gates - instant travel devices left in place by a vanished superrace. But now the human race is in an interstellar war against mysterious aliens, and may be losing. Amid this volatile situation, a new planet is discovered that is inhabited by a humanoid race who always unanimously agree on the truth. A team of scientists is sent to contact and study them, not knowing that their mission is a cover for the military analysis of the planet's moon, which is actually an incredibly ancient artifact - a ship defended by astonishing advanced technology.
As they explore the planet, the scientists must deal with the humanoids, who are trying to determine whether these intruders from Earth should be killed or not. It isn't long before the mysterious aliens arrive on the planet, bringing the war with them, and the whole powderkeg explodes.
