  • The sixth novel in Cherryh’s Foreigner space opera series, a groundbreaking tale of first contact and its consequences…

    It has been nearly ten years since the starship Phoenix returned to Alpha, the station orbiting the world of the atevi, which had been abandoned following a rift between a faction of the station’s inhabitants and the spacers’ Pilot’s Guild.

    The unexpected return of the Phoenix has forever changed the lives of both atevi and Mospheirans, for over the ensuing decade, the captains of the Phoenix have brought both species into space.

    Their motivation seemed simple: Reunion Station, a human station in another sector of space, had been destroyed by aliens.

    But on his deathbed, the senior captain of the Phoenix admits that he lied to the crew–that Reunion was merely damaged, not destroyed, and many people may have survived.

    At this disclosure, the crew rebels and forces the Phoenix to undertake a rescue mission to Reunion.

    Onboard the rescue mission are Bren Cameron, brilliant human paidhi representing the atevi ruler Tabini-aiji, and Tabini’s grandmother Ilisidi, a fearsome and ambitious atevi leader with an agenda of her own.

    Trapped in a distant star system with little fuel left, facing a bellicose alien ship, how can Bren help to avoid interspecies war when the notoriously secretive Pilot’s Guild aboard Reunion Station refuse to cooperate, and may have kept the inhabitants of their own station ignorant of their true situation?

    The long-running Foreigner series can also be enjoyed by more casual genre readers in sub-trilogy installments. Explorer is the 6th Foreigner novel, and the 3rd book in the second subtrilogy.
