The Voyage of the Space Beagle review

The Voyage Of The Space Beagle - Van Vogt

This is definitely the best of the three Van Vogt I've read(The Weapon Shops of Isher and The War Against The Rull being the others). I totally see this being a cheesy 50's Sci-Fi movie, but with Forbidden Planet production values and style. The aliens are properly scary and the story is told with a very Ward Cleaver, paternalistic technocratic 50s panache.
