The Ozimord Project by Vera Mont is a futuristic sci-fi novel set in the distant future when humans have begun to explore space and extend their dominion beyond our solar system. Captain Nere sent a message from his vessel Vanguard from the newly discovered planet Ozimord. The landers sent to the planet's surface had failed. The natives were primitive and not hostile, at least as far as they knew, so how they had failed and lost all communication was a mystery. On planet Earth, three factions have risen in power and all vie with each other for any small advantage. The news from Ozimord begins a fresh covert conflict as each side seeks to gain a foothold in the resource-rich Ozimord. On Ozimord, Gard, one of the landers, finds a world he would rather remain unspoiled and free of Earth's exploitation. He finds a society free from the discrimination and politicking of his homeworld. Has he finally found a place where he can find peace?
Vera Mont paints a vivid picture of what she imagines Earth's future will look like in a future space age. Humanity is still the same in many respects but also different in others. I enjoyed the political environment and the power struggle between the three factions as they sought to one-up each other. The Ozimord Project is realistic in its approach that space travel will not solve man's social or economic woes. Human nature is perhaps something that will negatively affect our actions for many centuries to come. The author then provides a contrast in Ozimord whose native people seem primitive on first consideration but seem to live simple carefree lives much better than those on Earth. The people of Ozimord live by a philosophy of enjoying their lives and being considerate of their fellows. For those who enjoyed James Cameron’s movie Avatar, you will definitely enjoy this book.
