I’m looking for the title. I think it was a series of books with an Asian-like title.

The plot involved:

  • Futuristic space travel.
  • A global race to get to a distress beacon from an alien ship in space.
  • A venting system to cool the ship's plasma drive.
  • More than one country arrived at the alien ship at the same time, and there was a standoff.
  • Hi, welcome to the site. In roughly which year did you read this and when do you think it might've been published? Commented Dec 7, 2023 at 23:04
  • Geez. It was old when I read it about 5 years ago. I think it may have been from the 90s. I realize that’s not helpful.

  • The title of the book was the name of the ship I think. And it was an Asian name.

  • I thought it had rendezvous in the title but it’s not rendezvous with Rama

  • The alien ship had an Asian name? Presumably, that was a name given to it by humans? Commented Dec 7, 2023 at 23:17
