In The Ocean of Night

An inbound asteroid is on a collision course with Earth. Nigel Walmsley (NASA astronaut) goes on a mission to destroy it with a nuclear weapon. He discovers that it's actually not a natural asteroid…it's the remains of a big spaceship. The human visit triggers the ship to emit a signal that brings humanity to the attention of hostile aliens.
