The most difficult part would have to be in the beginning. They go into detail about the EDS ship , and why they couldn’t have more than one person on the ship”The cruisers, powered by nuclear converters, did not use the liquid rocket fuel, but nuclear converters were far too large and complex to permit their installation in the EDSs. The cruisers were forced by necessity to carry a limited amount of bulky rocket fuel, and the fuel was rationed with care, the cruiser’s computers determining the exact amount of fuel each EDS would require for its mission.” To overcome the confusion, I read over the text multiple times and then eventually got the concept that they didn’t have enough fuel for more than one person, plus the cargo.
