The Lost Starship
Enjoy this light-hearted, tongue in cheek Science Fiction story, for Young Adults and Adults. Even though Daisy Weal herself does not appear in this story, it is still part of the series, falling between `Daisy Weal and the Last Crenian', and `The Star Queen', and is the fifth book in the series. The flagship of the Star Fleet, HMSS `The Daisy Weal', named in memory of her, was heading towards the desolate planet of Cren to deliver an archaeological and survey team. When passing through a binary system, an accident happened, and a beam of energy from an unknown source penetrated the ship killing all passengers and crew instantly. The ship's semi-sentient bio-processor took evasive action, and escaping on emergency thrust, it inadvertently twisted space and performed an unintended, and previously thought impossible, hyper jump. As a result, it ended up completely lost, but finds that it has been programmed with an overpowering urge to find a way home.
