Today’s episode, "Space for Guests", an original story written and adapted for radio by Lorne Kates NARRATOR There’s a two-kilometer wide mushroom in space, parked in the L5 LaGrange point of the Earth-Moon system. At least, there will be by the latter part of the 21st century. Space Station "Fixed Gaze", owned and operated by Initech Intersolar Incororated, is the premiere hub for research, experiments, and astronomy. Under the command of Josephine Garneau, the station is both home and work for a small, rotating crew of scientist and researchers. Every month for five years, Commander Garneau oversaw the personnel rotation. But today, as the transport shuttle docked with the station, she had no idea what head office had in store..

I can’t run a station with only juniors- ROYCE Commander-- ah-- Josephine-- I promise you, there’s another shuttle arriving by night shift with a full staff. These people are-- okay, so ever since the merger, the board’s been looking at the long-term projections for the station-- maintenance, depreciation, possible competition popping up in the L3- JOSEPHINE You’re selling the place ROYCE No!
