simul
/ˈsɪməl/
noun
1. a shortened form of simultaneous

2. a display in which a player plays a number of games simultaneously against different opponents.

A star-bound research team stumble upon what it means to exist in the vastness of space.

After each newly discovered planet, they find their minds and bodies changing. Decades into their journey, they must decide if they can return to the life they left behind. 

Ahem....In-progress, so forgive the typos and plot-holes.

I'm just getting into Science Fiction, having only written 1 myself (ironically that's what I actually got published).  But yeah this is pretty good, it kinda reminds me of 2001 Space Odyssey, and I can visualise the space and robots stuff quite well :)

@Red_Harvey Thanks for the dedication! Interesting choice of names for your characters. :)
                              
                              ... actually, this reminds me that I still haven't cracked the copies of STARBOARD WINE and THE JEWEL-HINGED JAW that I got for Christmas...

Okay so I really don't like space stories (or movies) at all,  but I'm going to give this a shot because your other stories are all fantastic.

Wow, this wasn't a mess... you introduced the plot quite well, and introduced us to the mix of characters, which hopefully will provide for some quality interaction!  :D

It's cheesy but as an anthropologist, I love stories featuring anthropologists :-)
