The story title gives the reader the main crux of the story. Beatriz, Jasper and Max are in a claustrophobic setting, the three of them crammed into a spaceship on a mission to Europa. No noble pioneers or astronauts these, but three hardened criminals, serving time by serving as human crew on a test journey of a cryoship.
But Jasper has his doubts – are they really on a ship, or is it a sophisticated sim? The question isn’t answered, and the tension ratchets up.
