David Brin An Uplift Trilogy
Books 1 & 2
Brightness Reef and Infinity's Shore
Once, millennia ago, the advanced Buyur civilization held sway on Jijo. But eventually the Buyur abandoned the world, leaving it to lie fallow and restore its ecological balance. Ever since, the vast civilization of the Five Galaxies has used patrols, guardian machines, and sanctions of law to prevent resettlement on Jijo until the planet has been revitalized.
But over the centuries it has been resettled. Groups of sentient beings, fleeing persecution or neglect, have ignored the laws, evaded the patrols, and settled on Jijo. They now live in hiding, in dread of the "Judgment Day" on which the Five galaxies discover their presence on Jijo and bring punishment upon them. Then a strange ship arrives in Jijo's skies, and the uneasy peace is shattered.
