In order to keep them from boredom along the way, the ship is equipped with state-of-the-art virtual reality modules, which allow the astronauts to essentially become anyone they want to be. One's a war hero, one's a rock star; the only limit is imagination. There's a problem, though: How can the crew members tell what's real?
