Chapter One Old Friends and Memories
The elevator went down to the apparatus on Bolivar’s hull where the shuttle docked.
As he entered the shuttle, McGreevy thought he hadn’t been in a shuttle in a long time. Not since the first century of interstellar travel; when ships couldn’t land on planets, and you had to take a shuttle to and from the surface.
Since the development of gravity control; and better hull materials, ships simply set down on a planet’s surface. It was easier, cheaper and a hell of a lot more convenient.
