Here's the sequel to The Getaway Special ( Getaway Special Review (SFRevu, Jan, 2001)). When the humans discover a cheap star drive, and that most anything (like a pickup tuck with really good window seals) can be turned into a starship, the governments of Earth (especially the US of A) tries to clamp down on the exodus of freedom loving folks. Remember Princess Leia (yes, I'm making a Star Wars reference) telling some Empire blow hard that "the tighter you squeeze your grip, the more star systems will slip through your fingers?" Or something like that? Those who don't watch science fiction movies are evidentially doomed to relive them...
