When the Inter-Planetary Corporation's top spaceliner Arcturus took off on a routine flight to Mars it turned out to be the beginning of a most unexpected and long voyage: attacked by a mysterious spaceship, the liner crash-landed on Ganymede. The survivors must first master that world's primeval terrors, then construct a new spacecraft, and finally, find a way to deal with the warring intelligences of the Jovian system.

Ok, the science is badly outdated, and the social mores are from the 30s so there are some social dynamics that a female friend found archaic...but the clever storylines and internal coherence make up for it. I first discovered this book when I was in my teens, and I still enjoy it for a fun read.

It was originally intended to be a series, but a second book was never written. IMO it is one of Doc Smith's best stories.
