->"There was something wonderful before this. What was it?"

''Hull Zero Three'' is a 2010 ScienceFiction novel by Creator/GregBear (Also known for ''Literature/TheWaySeries'').

It follows the story of a man who awakens on a star ship unsure of who he is or what he is doing. Monsters roam the spaceship.

If that sounds a lot like the 2009 film ''Film/{{Pandorum}}'', rest assured this story ends up far, far differently.
