Robert Forward doesn't have a team of cheerleaders, and he writes science fiction that is extremely heavy on the accurate science. So let's all just relax and enjoy the stories, scientific flaws and all, and not get so upset when our favorite writers aren't being taken seriously enough for our tastes.

It was re-made a few years in an interesting BBC adaptation, which, in spite of some pedestrian interims between scenes, managed to capture many of the interesting ideas of Fred Hoyle and John Elliot's work. Briefly, the story involves a message from outer space, which is deciphered by a talented, but temperamental British scientist, Fleming.

A for Andromeda

It provides them with the blueprint to build a computer and even an organic life-form hum A for Andromeda is a now-lost television series from the fifties. It provides them with the blueprint to build a computer and even an organic life-form humanoid, of course. Everyone is delighted with the results and the potential to develop new technology and scientific discoveries, but Fleming begins to rue his discover, and speculate suspiciously on why an alien race would give us this information and expect nothing in return.

He fears that this is part of a subtle mission to learn more about us, with plans for a future takeover.

The basic plot of the story is scientists discover a signal from space with instructions to build a computer, which then decodes further instructions for building life forms.

Two other movies, along with A for Andromeda have covered this topic in film, first the This Island Earth , and more recently with the Contact. This Island Earth was based on a book by Raymond F.

Jones, a long forgotten minor SF writer who had some moderate successes in the s and s. James Gunn took a more realistic look at the idea in The Listeners from , by having the story span a hundred years.

Any real SETI conversation will take centuries if not thousands of years.

All of these stories deal with common themes and issues surrounding the impact of SETI contact. A for Andromeda was written during the early days of the cold war, so in that story, the message from the stars was mostly kept secret from the public. I read A for Andromeda just after reading The Day of the Triffids, and unfortunately Andromeda pales in comparison, because Triffids is a gripping classic page turner.

There are thousands of alien invasion stories, which says so much about our paranoia and lack of knowledge of physics and the reality of space travel. It was also about computers and scientists working for secret government projects, and how the government has to spy on their own people because of national and industrial espionage.

A message from the stars: A for Andromeda ()

The aliens who send the message in A for Andromeda are very smart. It provides them with the blueprint to build a computer and even an organic life-form humanoid, of course. Everyone is delighted with the results and the potential to develop new technology and scientific discoveries, but Fleming begins to rue his discover, and speculate suspiciously on why an alien race would give us this information and expect nothing in return.

He fears that this is part of a subtle mission to learn more about us, with plans for a future takeover. What the book show is that Hoyle is a better scientist than an artist.

He is no great shakes as a writer, even with the help of a scriptwriter. However, the basic ideas offered in the book are fascinating, and keep us interested until the end, as we wait to find out what will happen.

However, I suspect that it probably works better when brought to life on a television screen. The book is worth a read, but I advise watching the modern BBC adaptation too.Video 01 Answers of an alien from Andromeda - First In , a copy of the sixth episode, "The Face of the Tiger", was returned to the BBC archives by a private collector; this is missing the pre-credits sequence of Reinhart's interview.

The characters are believable not too knowledgeable and not too stupid and act like real people would, character flaws and all. The prospect of novelising A for Andromeda arose early in the serial's production when Souvenir Press contacted the BBC in May indicating their interest in publishing a tie-in novel.

Andromeda is put to work developing a program to enable Britain to intercept orbital missiles which a foreign power is firing over British airspace as a demonstration of power.

The Andromeda galaxy is also known as M31 to the people of Earth. I estimate that such a sum would still be only 2—3 percent of the receipts by the BBC from licences.

Fleming is horrified and demands that it be killed.
