The Face of the Deep - Edmond Hamilton

A short-staffed Planet Patrol asks Captain Future to help out on a prison ship that contains a wretched hive of scum and villainry.

We all know how those work out. Mutiny and shipwreck on a planetoid that will explode in weeks. They basically have to build a ship from scratch, deal with prisoners to get their co-operator, the old volcano, and hostile telepathic sentient cacti.

Not too easy.
