I could swear that this has exactly the same plot as a book I read several years ago, down to the whole space-amish culture bubble and the approaching star thing. However, the book is currently on another continent, so there is no way for me to verify this. Does anybody know if there was a spin-off book series (unlikely) or a book from which the premise was stolen (also unlikely). The uncanny resemblance is killing me.

You are probably thinking of "Phoenix Without Ashes" by Edward Bryant and Harlan Ellison. Bryant took Ellison's original script and wrote a novel based on it. The TV show stuff was not involved.
