Mission to the Stars

(1952)
(The Mixed Men)
A novel by

 
 
Generations after the Dellian "robots" (actually humans whose genetic and molecular makeups have been subtlely modified by their forebears' use of an early model of teleportation device) have fled persecution by starship into the myriad solar systems of the Greater Magellanic Cloud, the Right Honourable Lady Lorr commands an armed starship expedition to ferret them out and return them to Earth's control. She finds them, along with far more than she had bargained for, both romantically and otherwise. The "mixed man" Malxby's effective taming of this delicious intergalactic shrew is instructive for those who wish to coexist romantically with today's strong-willed, demanding feminist professionals.
