How do you have your cake and eat it too? How do you tell a far-future story from an accessible point of view? This author has managed to do so, by plunging a 20th-century person into the situation on board the far-future spaceship Deepwater -- or is that what's really going on?

Despite its small size, and being a children's SF novel, this was an intriguing bit of SF, with good character development.

There has apparently been a TV series made based on this book (see <http: //www.scifi.com/missiongenesis/>) called "Mission Genesis". It appears to be based on the scenario and characters, but I don't think the plot is the same. It only lasted for one season, but there are fans of it out there.
