It just occurred to me really that there is an essence of Star Trek in the Chums of Chance which is revealing itself more and more as the book progresses. It may start as a 19th century boys adventure story but it develops into something more modern and even scifi. Star Trek is the obvious choice for influence (but probably many others as well).
