"“Dark Fall” by David Weber"
"Brave New World"
"Four centuries ago, the Calvin’s Hope set out from Earth. On board,
colonists who knew they themselves would never again set foot on a
planet’s surface, but who hoped for a better life for their descendants,
away from the Earth Union’s corrupt politics. Now, generations later,
Calvin’s Hope is about to reach its destination. KCR-126-04 looked to be
the perfect system for the colonists’ new homeworld. The planet on which
they planned to live was referred to as “Earth’s twin.” But that was
before the Hammers fell. Two asteroids, both larger than the one that
drove the dinosaurs to extinction, have rendered the planet
uninhabitable. Light-years from Earth and with no hope of turning back,
it seems all is lost for the crew of Calvin’s Hope. But though all seems
lost, Captain Vincent Anderson and his crew aren’t ready to roll over.
They’ve come this far—now they’ll make their own luck."
