Ark Royal is just the kind of science fiction read I was looking for! It follows one of my favorite themes: the broken down captain sent to the backwaters of the galaxy to lead a bunch of burnt-out losers into obscurity on a ship regarded as junk.
You know this story, we've seen or read it before. It is a great one. Christopher Nuttall's twists and turns do it justice. The Ark Royal is a once proud, now decayed, symbol of the British Royal space navy's past. With a crew that has been wholly written off and a captain who likes to drink, you can be sure the alien menace that suddenly appears is unstoppable.
Ark Royal is a space opera! I was frequently reminded of original Star Trek, Battlestar Galactica, and Star Wars, before they tried to ruin it. I'm looking forward to the second book.
