Starman Jones

Max Jones decides to run away from home. Guilds control all the good jobs and membership is hereditary. Max's uncle was an astrogator and he hopes to follow in his footsteps. That doesn't work out so he gets forged papers and signs up for a low level job on a starship's crew. Due to a freak accident the ship gets in major navigation trouble and there doesn't seem to be an answer...except Max's eidetic memory of astrogation tables.
