Lured by its exotic gems, the space trader Solar Queen lands on the little-known planet of Sargol, only to find the ruthless Inter-Solar Company there ahead of them. Adapting quickly to the culture of Sargol’s feline inhabitants, the crew of the Queen beat out their rivals and successfully make a deal with the natives. But soon after takeoff, the Queen’s crew is stricken with a plague, and they are now banned from landing on any inhabited planet. Will the Queen’s crew save themselves, or be condemned to drift forever through space? (Summary by Mark Nelson)(7 hr 4 min)

Plague Ship is a fun bit of light science fiction, although the science part is not really up to scratch, and doesn't stand a close inspection. However, the story is enjoyable enough to see through that, and enjoy the story anyhow. Mark Nelson is a superb reader, to the degree that I have started seeking out what he has read!
great read of classic sci fi
Free trade, over-reaching government, corruption in powerful companies....A libertarian sci fi classic. Read with skill and aplomb.
A good, if gentle, sci fi story with interesting characters and a plot that, if a little heavy on trading minutae, travels along at a good pace. Very well narrated too, as ever from Mr Nelson
Great sci-fi novel with unpredictable twists and turns. Narration is done with a smooth and delightful voice, and the narrator did not slip up a single time as I can remember.
Really enjoyed this story once I got through the first beginning chapters. I found them a little boring then the story took off and was was great. Mark as always did a fantastic job of reading
Wonderful story, the creatures of this world keep you pondering our existence with and with out the creatures we call pets. Plus Mark is the best rhetorician on Librivox.
One of the Best SciFi Novel's Ever Written
This classic scifi is without one of the best ever written. This brilliant novel was written in the story and even the science is still relevant and while entertaining.
Another good story by Andre Norton
And you gotta love when the little guys win. Summary gives you the general idea of the story. It kept me listening till the end, very nicely done.
