The Commodore Perry

The Commodore Perry, an optical-drive rocket designed by Rheinfeld Peebles, delivered the first paying tourist to Space Station M. It remained in service for ten years before being retired to the ether of the asteroid zone out west. The dining facilities were four-star, offering a champagne breakfast with fresh fruit and a dinner menu the equal of any on the planet Earth.

Equipped with air-cushion shock absorbers, anti-lock brakes, and power steering, the Commodore Perry could stop on a dime and handle curves better than any sportster. No speed records were set, but for point-to-point travel in splendid comfort there has never been anything like it. Crowded seating and less than spectacular food is what one can expect in most commercial space travel since the Perry's retirement, a fact that has not gone unnoticed by numerous industry critics here and abroad.
