Could a Roman general survive an untamed America? Perhaps, with the aid of the wily Indian Aquila.
For 20,000 years, the Inquestors ruled the farthest reaches of space. This is the tale of one who was destined to bring the fall of that mighty intergalactic empire, the one called the Darkling Wind.
The Thanetians believe that the world comes to its end in fire and life begins anew every five-thousand years. The fiery comet approaching their world appears to confirm their beliefs, but the Enterprise will destroy the comet if that course of action seems wise. Captain Picard first wrestles with the question of how to save the Thanetian's planet without completely destroying their rich culture. As if that problem were not enough, it is discovered that the comet is actually alive.

This is the third book in Inquest or Dispersal of Mankind series by Somtow Sucharitkul. Utopia hunters is the history of the Inquest as seen through the eyes of a young woman, who becomes a central figure in its evolution. Jenjen, a lightweaver from the world of Essondras is summoned by the Inquestor Ton Elloran to fashion a great lightsculpture commemorating the Inquest's crusade against false utopias. Caught in a great game played with billions of lives, she learns to see in her life, her art and in the great sweep of history itself the terrible shadow that threatens the Inquest--and the light that lies beyond the darkness. This book uses many many unusual names and makes compound words to create a "futuristic" dialect. It also has excerpts from poems in the language of the far future time of the Inquest.
