Lost in Space

Hugh had been taught that, according to the ancient sacred writings, the Ship was on a voyage to faraway Centaurus. But he also understood this was just allegory for a voyage to spiritual perfection. Indeed, how could the Ship move, since its miles and miles of metal corridors were all there was of creation? Science knew that the Ship was all the universe, and as long as the sacred Converter was fed, the lights would continue to glow, the air would flow, and the Creator's Plan would be fulfilled.

Of course, there were the muties, grotesquely deformed parodies of humans, who lurked in the upper reaches of the Ship, where gravity was weaker. Were they evil incarnate, or merely a divine check on the population, keeping humanity from expanding past the capacity of the Ship to support?

Then Hugh was captured by the muties and met their leader (or leaders)??Joe-Jim, with two heads on one body??and learned the true nature of the Ship and its mission between the stars. But could he make his people believe him before it was too late? Could he make them believe that he must be allowed to fly the Ship… (mais)

Orphans of the Sky por Robert A. Heinlein (1963)

    Non-Stop por Brian Aldiss (jigarpatel)
    jigarpatel: "Non-Stop" (1958) is a well-developed successor to Heinlein's fix-up "Orphans of the Sky" (whose components were first published 1941). I recommend "Non-Stop" for plot and characterization, "Orphans of the Sky" for those interested in the history of science fiction. Both are excellent.… (mais)

    The Modern Scholar: From Here to Infinity ~An Exploration of Science Fiction Literature~ (14 Lectures on 7 Audiocassettes) por Michael D. C. Drout (themulhern)
    themulhern: This awful work by Heinlein pretty much refutes everything positive that Drout has to say about Heinlein in his discussion of his work in this quite interesting lecture series.

Science fiction novel that really impressed me at the time. Giant starship with later generations in separate areas finally get together as a planet is approached. I was just starting to get into Sci-Fi. back then. ( )

Orig. publ. as a two-part serial in Astounding Science Fiction under the titles Universe and Common Sense ( )
  ME_Dictionary | Mar 19, 2020 |
Dit is een van de oorspronkelijke "verloren generatie schip" verhalen, een novelle van twee eerdere korte verhalen van Heinlein. Oorspronkelijk in de jaren '40 geschreven blijft het verhaal toch boeien.

De 'bemanning' van Schip heeft nooit iets anders gekend dan Schip, een gigantisch ruimteschip met meerdere dekken, dat voor hen hun hele universum is. Ze hebben geen notie van beweging of dat er iets buiten Schip is. Lang geleden hebben zij alle begrip van Schip's technologie en oorsprong verloren, ook al doen ze de dingen die nodig zijn om het systeem draaiende te houden.

Het verhaal gaat over een jongeman, die bezig is om wetenschapper te worden, maar die gevangen genomen word door een groep 'mutties', afstammelingen van de muiters, geleid door een bijzonder intelligent tweehoofdige leider, in bezit van een bibliotheek met boeken die hij beter begrijpt dan de 'bemanning'. Hij toont Hugh de sterren en de echte natuur van Schip. Als Hugh terug keert om zijn mede-bemaningsleden hierover te vertellen, loopt het precies zo als je je kan voorstellen. Het loopt uit op muiterij en verraad. Intussen nadert Schip zijn bestemming.

Wat mij betreft geen top SF verhaal, maar een middenmoter, waarbij wel bedacht moet worden dat dit een boek is dat in de '40-er jaren van de vorige eeuw is geschreven. ( )

The ship Vanguard, originally destined for Proxima Centauri, is cruising pilotless through the interstellar medium as a result of a failed mutiny that killed all of the piloting officers. The descendants of the surviving crew have forgotten the purpose and nature of their ship over time

Note that the Italian translation is titled 'Universo' (isfdb), so these entries should not be separated out and combined with the novella 'Universe'.
This novel was first published in Astounding Science Fiction in May and October of 1941 as two separate novelettes: "Universe" and its sequel "Common Sense". "Universe" was reprinted by itself in book form in 1951. The two were combined to form this work in 1963.
