From Booklist:

The sequel to Signals [BKL Mr 15 03] leaps 200 years further into the future. To ensure human survival should the aliens of that book turn out to be hostile, gigantic generation starships are leaving Earth to plant human colonies elsewhere. Aboard one its inhabitants call the Home, the civil government is trying to impose a conformist dictatorship with drugs and indoctrination. Rebellion leads to sabotage of the food supply and a survival crisis for conformists and nonconformists alike. Advance scouts find a habitable planet that may be a refuge before the food runs out, but it seems already inhabited. Meanwhile, on-board political tensions erupt into full-scale civil war. The ending is a calm between storms. A host of questions are unresolved, including the ship's fate and whether the refugees will be caught between the menacing spacefaring aliens they have fled and the menacing "primitives" on their would-be home planet. Besides his usual brisk pacing, Randle shows narrative mastery and an eye for technical and social novelties. Roland Green
