Tauna by Cal Hayes

The USS Tauna, a secret ship sent into deep space to explore for other life and habitable planets, sent an SOS distress signal two decades ago. She may have been attacked. Newly discovered technology provides a chance to recover her, and her crew of twenty souls. Aboard her there were seed stores and knowledge to create a colony and/or survive under harsh conditions. Please take time to read this wonderful book. Cheers Tauna
