I actually had to stop reading this

This story starts off pretty well - a semi believable plot with secret government agencies, new discoveries on new planets sort of thing. About halfway thru it devolves into some hare brained mish mash of ideas and never ending cycle of idiot characters. It's like a 5 year old wrote down every fantastic idea that jumped into his head every 10 seconds. All of the characters make stupid decision after stupid decision despite being "geniuses" or "the best" at what they do. It's a schizophrenic story with such a jumpy plot that the creativity is absolutely lost. I read hundreds of books a year and this one is very a rare one that was so bad I couldn't finish....
