Freedom Riders (Feb 25 2012) ------------------------------------------------- They called themselves the Freedom Riders. No, I’m not talking about the brave who rode interstate buses to break up segregationist policies. I’m talking about the passengers on Kendargu freighters who, despite paying a fortune for passage, suffered cramped and horrible conditions in the ships. So, they put together a plan to break out of their tiny cabin mid-voyage. The cabin was cramped because temporal and inertial dampers take up a lot of room. Those that didn’t get phase-shifted to jumpspace ended up as that messy paste spread out on the cargo bay walls. Oh well. Go get some mops. ------------------------------------------------- © 2005-2021 Laurence Simon
