This was first "generation ship" nov-l I read back in mid 1950's: The Star Seekers by Lesser, Milton It is a bit pricey if you want a used copy from amazon.com or abebooks.com..but maybe Inter-library loan? Doug

The Star Seekers wasn't bad, sort of a "juvenile novel". Try this link and the links embedded within to Amazon comments. http://sciencefictionruminations.wordpress.com/science-fiction-book-reviews-by-author/list-of-generation-ship-novels-and-short-stories/ Doug

I enjoyed the BBC Radio series Earthsearch by Ken Follet and have passed it on to grateful friends. Several FTL generation ships are sent to find a new homeworld for humanity, but problems arise due to egotistical AI control systems and FTL time distortion. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Earthsearch Thanks for the interesting post!
