Flash Fiction Friday: The Star Liner

They built her out of the most durable materials known to man. Her hull was thick enough to withstand a meteor bombardment, and she was filled with the most advanced technology and most decedent luxuries that money could buy.

They didn’t name her the Titanic. That would have been silly.

She first spread her solar sails in January 2113, though it’d been ready almost a year earlier. Over 10,000 souls climbed aboard for the maiden voyage through the Asteroid Belt. It was a glittering triumph.

She was the largest, most expensive Star Liner ever built.

They called her the Indestructible.
