Synopsis

REFUGE. That was what the humans called this rich, attractive planet - a refuge from starving, over-populated Earth. And the Colonists could provide millions of tons of desperately needed produce for the hungry billions left on their home planet. If only the native inhabitants of Refuge weren't so natural-born lazy: harmless, it's true, but actually nothing more than a bunch of loafers. If the loafers could be made to turn to, Refuge could really be the Earth's breadbasket. But the Loafers steadily refused to turn to - there was nothing the humans could do about it. And the years went by. And everything remained friendly and quiet. Until one day, a young human, born and raised on Refuge, decided he'd rather join the Loafers!
