Publisher's blurb: "The chief tenet of the Astrnomischen-Rechen Institut is the pursuit of interstellar exploration for the betterment of humanity. A rich and coveted pocket of stars lies a mere 350 light-years away. The time has come to unlock its secrets. Resting comfortably in the constellation of Tauras in Earth's familiar night sky, the Pleiades have long been an object of awe, worship, and inspiration for different human cultures. To ancient civilizations which placed tremendous importance on the heavily bodies, the unique character of the Pleiades was as compelling as it was puzzling.
"To the modern men of the 24th century, however, the Pleiades are very nearly as great prize - a storehouse of young stars just waiting to be tapped for information. The Astrnomischen-Rechen Institut, a foundation pledged to extend the boundaries of human explration and human knowledge, recognizes this potential and has for years been in preparation for the long voyage to this fabled cache of stars. The vehicle for that mission has been carefully designed and purposefully crewed for the tenuous journey across uncharted stars. The ship is called Bayern."
