On humanity's first extra-solar mission, the exploration vessel Magellan, or, as she prefers, "Maggie", discovers an alien artifact. Deciding that finding advanced alien life is too important to ignore, Captain Allison Ridgeway chooses to return to Earth while ordering her crew to reverse engineer technology far beyond anything back home. Meanwhile, at mission control, the governments struggle to maintain the existence of aliens a secret while also combating bureaucracy, the military industrial complex, and everyone else who wants a piece of what could skyrocket humanity into a new technological age.

The story has loopholes and problems with it but overall had a great idea. Some of the references were lengthy and unnecessary. The voice actress had the voices down great but the reading sounded more punctual than fluid. I finished this book because I bought it and the story was appealing but found myself wanting it to be finished.
