Themes in Lunatics - #8 "Family Life versus Command Hierarchies"

Posted by Terry Hancock (Creator)

Continuing with themes in the stories for Lunatics... Here's number eight:

Theme #8 Family Life versus Command Hierarchies

Here's the corporate-minded, government-agency vision for starting a space colony: use your rigorous training and selection program to find eight "perfect humans", four male, four female. Then convince them to mate and produce offspring.

Maybe this would work for hamsters. But for humans, it's going to be the other way around. ISF crews are recruited as teams and thus based on family ties more than some committee's ideal team selection parameters. Naturally, there will be some friction between this and the military or civilian agency teams on the Moon.
