About the Eight Worlds
Ships in The Eight Worlds tended to be old, often older than their crews, because that was all their owners could afford. Inevitably, and in spite of the best maintenance, things broke.

How did she keep her ponytail under control in zero-g? Terrans were rumored to have mysterious powers. This may be one of them.
