The starship Earthling, filled with thousands of hybernating colonists en route to a new world at Tau Ceti, is stranded beyond the solar system when the shipâ€™s three Organic Mental Coresâ€”disembodied human brains that control the vesselâ€™s functionsâ€”go insane. An emergency skeleton crew sees only one chance for survival: to create an artificial consciousness in the Earthlingâ€™s primary computer, which could guide them to their destination . . . or could destroy the human race.
