Sorry to dredge up an old thread, but I believe I have come up with a solution: The container ship.

In the CITADEL continuity Jack and I are writing, we've established that the Glomar Explorer from TOTMM Episode 15: "Operation: Jennifer II" (I really should finish that someday...) is rebuilt into a container ship.

So consider this: Like today's container ships, anyone can buy/rent a shipping container and pay for it to be placed on board and taken to a specific port of call. Even "official" shippers, such as the USPS, use this type of transit.

Thoughts?

I'd be curious to read it.

I'll post it sometime this weekend (what I've done with it).

It's the story where Corwin loses her head (quite literally) to save her from being assimilated.
