Overview

Four giant starships left Earth, traveling in different directions and looking for a new start; hoping to find a substitute for home.
They sought a virgin planet not ravaged by climate change, crime, and corruption. A world where they could begin anew.
Each ship was populated by the best Earth had to offer, and sent to one of the four best possible exo-planets discovered by man.
This is the story of the starship Excalibur, and the adventures of its brave passengers.
One man will awake to a new life, in an unfamiliar place, to become what the ship and its passengers need most. The kind of man...who must save them all.

This review was first published on Kurt's Frontier. Synopsis: The spaceship Excalibur has left Earth for a new start on a planet thirty years away. The ship is state-of-the-art. One thousand people are kept in hibernation while the automatic systems complete its journey. Except something has gone dreadfully wrong. Forty years into the journey and they still have not woke up. Al Clark awakens with amnesia. He has no memory of how or why he’s on the ship. As he helps to wake the surviving passengers, he embarks on a journey of self-discovery. He goes places he never imagined and does things he didn’t think possible. Yet he is still left with a great mystery: Who is Al Clark? Review: Al Clark is the first book of the series with the same name. Earth is in the midst of an environmental crisis. Earth has sent colony ships to other Earth-like worlds. We are introduced to Al Clark, a man who wakes up on the ship with amnesia. What follows is Al Clark slowly working out who he is and why he is on the mission. There are characters—like Chris: a young man who is the first person Al meets after waking up and Liz, Chris’s mother—who become people we learn to care about. The first contact scenario seemed to go to well. This results from a prophecy that isn’t further explored after the author introduces it. As the story revolves around the setup of the colony, it proves to be an episodic story but still enjoyable with exciting battles with dinosaurs.

Reviewed by Paul F. Johnson for Readers' Favorite What do you do when you wake up in a small box, in a small room, with no idea who and where you are. After some disorientation, you discover that your name (at least part of your name) is Al Clark. But really, who are you and how did you happen to be there? After some exploration, you finally meet another human. From him you begin to learn at least where you are. You’re on a starship that may be in deep trouble. You also learn that you are one of a thousand specially selected people to leave Earth for another world. The mission of the Starship Excalibur is to convey colonists to start a new civilization on a compatible planet, named Avalon, thirty Earth years away. The ship is state-of-the-art and entirely automatic, with its passengers safely sleeping through the journey. But something has gone wrong and a lot more time has passed than planned. Plus, Avalon and Al himself may not be exactly as they seem. Is the mission still achievable; can they successfully establish a new colony? Only more time will tell. Al Clark by Jonathan G. Meyer grabs the reader's attention from page one. One of my favorite genres is science fiction, above all, space opera. I found Al Clark to be space opera and more. I call it space adventure. The author has created a strong, believable set of characters, particularly the First Six. The story plot is strong and steady with several well designed twists, leaving a true space opera and space adventure fan expectantly waiting to turn the next page. I strongly recommend this book for those that enjoy good sci-fi. Good story.
