Slow Train to the Stars!

You’re aboard a generation ship headed for the stars. The ship is made up of isolated compartments, like train cars, with each “car” being a totally autonomous unit. You’ve got limited space, but limitless resources. In five sentences or less, tell us what modern culture you would import onto your isolated compartment. Would you create the land of office worker control freaks? The land of football tailgaters?

Send your answer in an email to with “August Contest” as the subject line. Don’t forget to include your name. Entries must be received by August 20th. Entries will be judged by the Baen editorial staff, with one lucky winner receiving a copy of Slow Train to Arcturus, signed by Eric Flint and Dave Freer.

All aboard!
