“Familiar our story be, fragments that, bits of flotsam drifting on the currents of the Cosmic Ocean.”The People of the Colony worked hard in the Ocean, be it diving a Manna Boy into a great gas giant for fuel or mining ore from a rock with a Tort. And as hard as they worked, the Colonists played even harder at their port of call in the Shallows. There, they found all of the delights to satisfy their many vices, be it for lust or love.
