Solar Queen

Plague Ship by Andre Norton

"Lured by its exotic gems, the space trader Solar Queen lands on the little-known planet of Sargol, only to find the ruthless Inter-Solar Company there ahead of them. Adapting quickly to the culture of Sargol's feline inhabitants, the crew of the Queen beat out their rivals and successfully make a deal with the natives. But soon after takeoff, the Queen's crew is stricken with a plague, and they are now banned from landing on any inhabited planet. Will the Queen's crew save themselves, or be condemned to drift forever through space?" (Summary by Mark Nelson)

Voodoo Planet by Andre Norton

"The sequel to Plague Ship, Voodoo Planet finds the Solar Queen banned from trade and starting her supposed quiet two-year stint as an interstellar mail carrier. But instead her crew accepts a visit to the safari planet of Khatka, where they find themselves caught in a battle between the forces of reason and the powers of Khatka's mind-controlling wizard." (Summary by Mark Nelson)
