I'm working on a novel, but I need some Ideas and Second opinions.

Plot Summary;
The Earth is close to destruction. Clark Lindermann, an astronaut and philanthropist is selected to pilot an experemental aircraft called Lifeline to find a new world. Astronomers have found a planet labeled 51123, also called Korial. They will send 500 humans to populate a new world. Scientists have been working on a new type of fuel that increases spacecraft speed greatly, but this fuel has defects, it is highly combustible and has claimed dozens of pilots already. This fuel, and project Lifeline is humanity's only hope for survival. Will it work, or will the 500 explode in deep space, condemning humanity to extinction? Will there be new intelligent life forms on this planet, and will they be a threat to humans?

What do you guys think?

Sounds great! Make sure to print that and send it through the postal system so there is a hard piece of evidence saying you came up with this before anyone else.

BWAHAHAHAH STOLEN. But yeah I like the idea, almost reminds me of battlestar galactica(alone in space type thing). Just depends how your grammar and vocabulary are. I dabble in writing and have 90 average in class, if you want me to maybe look at a page or two I can tell you whether or not you need to improve in some places!

There have been several science fiction works that focus on extra-terrestrial colonisation (e.g. the Mars series), but I'm interested to see that this one tackles the issues of the developmental logistics of such. Well, possibly.

My suggestion, therefore, would be to actually address the how and the challenges that one might face in setting up such programs- not so much about intelligent life but the issues leading up to actually getting people from here to god-knows-where. This would of course depend on whether you intend to write a drama, soft/hard sci-fi, comedy, satire etc. But I just feel it would be more topical and therefore people would find it more relevant, or even prescient.
