I first read this in April 2001.

Earth was under attack by the Vrell aliens. They were finally defeated by human-engineered mutagenic virii, however these virii have had a disastrous side-effect. Diseases are decimating children worldwide.

In a search for a cure, expeditions are sent to the long-lost colony worlds to collect original human DNA. So far all colonies visited were found to have failed. Now Doctor Irene Olsen and her crew-mates have landed on Navohar, and there definitely appear to be humans alive here. The problem is that they apparently don't want to be found and they clearly have something that they are trying very hard to keep secret.

The premise was exciting and the first few pages had me enthralled, but my interest tailed off. It was quite a pleasant read, something of a adventure mystery and with interesting characters, At this point further words fail me.

it had aliens, at least
