Robert Cauley | 164 comments 1960's paperback. earth fights a galactic power even though galactic power knows location of earth. earth is destroyed. Only known survivors are all male crew of a ship whose commander used innovative tactics. he and other are now on a backwater planet. An individual of a galactic power friendly to Earth rehabilitates the commander and then the others as well. They ressurrect a CREE ship,an ancient power long gone. A new war ensues and the remainder male earthers rescue some human women. They somehow travel into the far future and find the inimicable and friendly galactic powers are now very primitive cultures.

Robert Cauley | 164 comments Hi all,

it's been a while the brain cells are still dead for new info on this one. Definitely a 60's mass market size though

Michael Watson | 136 comments I think I recognize this one! I think that this is C. C. McCapp's Recall Not Earth. Everything fits: The Kree ship, humans fighting a much larger established empire (the Vulmoti, or "Vulls"), the ending in the far future where few cultures retain spaceflight.

Michael Watson | 136 comments Excellent! Hope it's the right book. It sure rang bells for me as I read your description.


Justanotherbiblophile | 1747 comments If you think there's a good chance that this is your book, you can put this request in the "Possibly Solved" folder, by clicking the 'edit' link next to the subject line / title.

If this turns out to be the book you're looking for, come back and tell us that we were successful in our guesses. We keep the old requests (please don't delete it), so new people who're using a search function can easily find the same book, based on your keywords/description. We move these finished requests to one of the "Solved" folders, the same way as above. (In addition, I like to edit my requests to show the title and author at the top of the original post, so it shows up in google results easily).

If it turns out that this wasn't your book, or you want more suggestions - you can put this query back into the "Unsolved" folder at any time, and bump it (although we ask you to not bump it more than once a month) to put it back to the head of the queue, so it doesn't get buried in the older requests.
