Startide Rising (Bantam Spectra Book) Cover

 

Staff Pick

Put a dolphin on the cover of a sci-fi book and I'm all but hooked! Here, the Earth ship Streaker — carrying a crew made up mostly of dolphins — has had to crash land on an aquatic planet to make repairs. Can the crew fix the ship, stave off mutiny and aliens (some of the weirdest and most entertaining around), and escape with their lives? Thrilling adventure with a very broad scope and an amazing array of characters make this a winning story.

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

David Brin's Uplift novels are among the most thrilling and extraordinary science fiction ever written. Sundiver, Startide Rising and The Uplift War — a New York Times bestseller — together make up one of the most beloved sagas of all time. Brin's tales are set in a future universe in which no species can reach sentience without being "uplifted" by a patron race. But the greatest mystery of all remains unsolved: who uplifted humankind?

The Terran exploration vessel Streaker has crashed in the uncharted water world of Kithrup, bearing one of the most important discoveries in galactic history. Below, a handful of her human and dolphin crew battles armed rebellion and a hostile planet to safeguard her secret — the fate of the Progenitors, the fabled First Race who seeded wisdom throughout the stars.
