The shuttle returns to Earth with none of Britannia 7’s inhabitants. Facing a stay much longer than they ever expected – perhaps stretching into months or longer – Carstairs and Fanshaw begin investigating some features of Britannia 7 intended for long-distance journeys, including a facility for recreating Earthlike environments. Mrs. Noah gravitates toward one option that replicates the environment to which she is most accustomed – British suburbia – and the rest of the station’s occupants grudgingly help her return, briefly, to her ideal life.
