Excerpt: The Songs of Distant Earth is the common title of several science fiction works by Arthur C. Clarke, including a science fiction short story, a short movie synopsis, and a 1986 science fiction novel that all bear the same title. This article deals with the novel. The story is set over a period of approximately 1,900 years from the 1960s to the early 3800s nearly all on the faraway oceanic planet of Thalassa.

Thalassa was populated by humans with an embryonic seed pod, sent out from Earth in a last attempt to continue the human races existence before the Earth was destroyed. Unlike Clarkes other works, this piece also focuses on characterization and emotional development, instead of just technological change. It starts with an introduction to the native Thalassans the marine biologist Mirissa, her partner Brant and other friends and family. Their peaceful existence comes to an end with the appearance of Magellan, a spaceship from Earth containing one million colonists put into cryonic suspension.
