Coronation Fleet

by Alison Chaplin

A madcap comedy set on a spaceship sometime in the future. A visit from the Outer Far Space Tracking and Eradication Division inspectors is imminent, but the ineffectual Captain has other things on his mind - namely beating his personal best on his Game Boy! Bullying, drugs and broken down workstations add to the chaos and lead to a soap opera-style cliff-hanger ending, as the inspectors suddenly bring their visit forward!
