First Contact: Escape to 55 Cancri
by Kenneth E. Ingle
A group of scientists escapes persecution on Earth by travelling into space. Unfortunately, what they find is that the stars are already occupied... and nobody is prepared to make room for humans. In fact, they're prepared to make sure no other humans follow... in the most final way possible. Marie Presk and her crew must fight for survival... and for the survival of the Earth that rejected them.
