Galactic Derelict , published in , is the second in a series of Andre Norton novels that began a year earlier with Time Traders. After stumbling onto a long-lost alien technology that permits time travel, two groups of humans — the Reds i.

In order to fit in, the Americans masquerade as traders. All those thousands of years ago, however, the land is a lush green place where sabretooth tigers and huge mammoths are threats, as are some primitive humans.

The plan is to set up machinery to send the entire ship back to the late s, but, as everything is being readied, the land is shaken by a series of earthquakes. The time transfer takes place, but, at the same moment, the automatic controls of the craft send it off into space — the space, not of the past, but of the present day. The question, then, is whether they can figure out a way to get back to Earth.

In this novel, Andre Norton is in the early wave of science-fiction writers who are seriously thinking about how odd and unlike humans the intelligent life on another planet might be. She stumbles in the simplistic way she equates the physical features of another race, particularly its smell, with its moral qualities — its good-ness or bad-ness.

Ashe held on his palm the tuft of hair and the odor rising from it was not only noticeable in the usual scentless atmosphere of the ship, but penetrating in its foulness. But, if I try that odd Russian dish or Korean dish or Indian dish, I may find that the food tastes good.

When the humans come across some flying beings who seem to have something of the insect, bird and mammal to them, they are attracted:. It was impossible to read any expression in those stalked eyes, a brilliant blue. But none of the four Terrans felt any repulsion or alarm as they had upon their encounter with the nocturnal desert people.

Whatever the flyer was, they could not believe that it was either aggressive or a possible danger to them. What could be safer than a pretty flower? Even with this failing, Norton succeeds in Galactic Derelict in thinking about other intelligent races because the novel is filled with questions.

For a moment, Travis did not understand, and then the meaning of the rather ambiguous statement sank in. How could they be sure that the prey was not — man? Trying to figure out whether to deal with one sort of creature, Murdock says the humans may be entering a trap. To which, Travis responds:. How can we tell what makes their minds tick? On one planet, they confront machinery that they are tempted to tinker with, but hold off because it might result in the explosion of a building and the deaths of the natives who live there.

Ashe says:. Norton may get it wrong when she equates smell with good-ness or bad-ness. This is a lesson that would have benefited many human nations and empires throughout history that gave not a thought to the natives into whose world they were intruding.

Book review: “Galactic Derelict” by Andre Norton

It is part of Norton's Forerunner universe. In the republished version Norton changed the word Reds to Russians. No change was made in the story. While seeking water for his cattle, Travis Fox enters a little known canyon in the Arizona desert and gets captured by three men, one of whom he recognizes as Dr. Gordon Ashe, an archaeologist. After discovering that Fox studied archaeology and had done some digging in the canyon they now occupy, the men have him cleared through security and offer to make him part of their team. They find the wreck near a lake and then, across a ridge, they find a smaller spaceship intact, its crew of Baldies dead.
