At the end of a major war, the worse of the worse, from both sides (known as the Dregs by the crew), are put onto a sleeper ship and sent off to a far flung corner of the galaxy.
One by one the Dregs awaken: and find that something has gone horribly wrong with the ship. With it’s systems failing, the ship has ended up where it should have been but a very long time in the future.
A really good story with the Dregs having to learn to put their differences aside and work together to survive, but some differences need settling first.
Next up in Alastair’s list is A Murmuration.
Bye for now.
