Classic nuts-and-bolts Science Fiction with heart.

Two space engineers, husband and wife, are shipwrecked on a long-lost space station – and find it’s in danger of flying apart. Vowing to fix it, they dodge twitchy locals, angry aliens, and killer robots. But, of course, everything that can go wrong goes wrong – then gets worse.

With Sam hunched over the steering wheel, and Hannah gasping about his driving, the air-car whizzed through a maze of giant tunnels on a mission of mercy. Hours too late... The car dodged whole families drifting and screaming in zero gravity. The air was littered with flotsam: leg-tied chickens, blankets, cord wood, buckets slowly trailing water, rocks tied for anchors and lost, a squealing pig, a treetop. Hannah watched a wailing child spin past, then a swooping bird-man snatched it up. Here and there fights broke out between lizard-folk and griffins. .. “I hate to think all this suffering is our doing!” Hannah shouted over the wind... “It’s not,” Sam shouted back. “We’re trying to stall catastrophe, remember? Still, no problem’s so bad that a little help won’t make it worse. Duck!”
