The Sequestran Dilemma – Chapter 4.1

The Sequestrans?

The Sequestrans I thought….I was sure I’d heard of them somewhere before but couldn’t quite remember in what context so I said to Cat,

“Ok, tell me about the Sequestrans and what a Sequestran postmaster is please.”

“Well,” began Cat, “the Sequestrans are really not terribly well known. Earth’s only encounter with them was some time ago on the moon.”

“Really,” I said, still not remembering where I’d heard about them, “tell me more.”

Cat continued, “Surely as an avid historian, you will know that that humans landed and walked on the moon 6 times between 1968 and 1972?”

“I really had no idea why Cat thought I might be a historian of any kind, Never mind an avid one, but nodded sagely before he continued,

“Humankind didn’t return to the moon until 2044 when Virgin Galaxy landed a ship with over 50 settlers who built a permanent base there. Over the next decade Virgin Galaxy raised the first space hotel – Lunar Delight – and from 2054 the moon became a meaningful and attractive holiday location.”

“Right,” I said, “and….?”
