(From the publisher):
In the free-fall environment of the Smoke Ring, the descendants of the crew of the Discipline no longer remembered their Earth roots - or the existence of Sharls David Kandy, the computer program despot of the ship. Until Kendy initiated contact once more. Fourteen years later, only Jeffer, the Citizens Tree Scientist, knew that Kendy was still watching - and waiting. Then the Citizens Tree people rescued a family of loggers and learned for the first time of the Admiralty, a large society living in free fall amid the floating debris called the Clump. And it was likely that the Admiralty had maintained, intact, Discipline's original computer library. Exploration was a temptation neither Jeffer Nor Kendy could resist, and neither Citizens Tree nor Sharls Davis Kendy would ever be the same again...
