    I'd heard of this before but wasn't much interested to look into it. And I only got about halfway through this article before I gave up. So, no, I have no interest.

    Might do it just for the joke--kind of like joining the Flat Earth Society. :)

    When I was a little sf reader, yes. But now I realize the conditions under which we would have to exist and I like big open spaces with rivers full of big fish. Living in a tin can indeed.

    I would be interested in it, but I think I've read far too much dystopian SF to trust a small community on an isolated space station with no immediate means of running away in case things turn bad.

    Unless it's the GSV Sleeper Service. Then I'm down with it. You could have little mountains and humongous bodies of water and a biodiversity of flora and fauna.
    THIS!

    Ha, Ha!! This is tantamount to saying that you would only drive a Maserati. The problem is only Peugeots are available…:)

    A Maserati would be one of the Rapid Offensive Units of the Culture.

    The GSV Sleeper Service is more like this:



    But also fully armored and weaponized for any post-apocalyptic scenario.

    Ha, ha! Great interior! As far as the exterior is concerned, it reminds me of a squashed, fat cyclops...

    Now, for a GCU I've got this:

    Beautifully camouflaged and equipped with experts in dealing with other aliens species...

    Ha, those are pretty good comparisons! That GCU you've posted is seriously great. Or maybe it's an eccentric Limited Contact Unit? Could it be called the LCU/e Here to Join Your Motley Crew? Or maybe Missed the Handing Out of Gravitas?
