Superluminal

The starship shudders in an energy flux. “You underestimate the danger,” I say, finishing my coffee.

My passenger grins. “I have a perfect forged identity waiting for me at the Pavonis system. Twenty years of knowing Earth’s market information while light catches up, and you’ll receive a king’s ransom on arrival.”

Holding the empty cup, I feel a nagging unease. “There are good reasons superluminal flight is illegal. Crews have come back mad, or catatonic. Starships vanish. No one knows what happens to them.”
