SF Drabble #320 “The Lord’s Work”

A couple more missionaries showed up on the latest colony ship. How they slip through the vetting process I’ll never know. Then again, we didn’t realize what they were until they signed up for time on the printing press and showed up with files for a Bible. Ed called the Sheriff, of course.

They said they knew what the rules were here, but decided to come anyway. The Sheriff will have to keep them in a holding cell until the next ship comes, which is four months away. Good thing they hold four slots for ‘unsuitables’ on every return trip.
