- The Cold Equations (from Wikipedia): "The story takes place entirely aboard an Emergency Dispatch Ship (EDS) headed for the frontier planet Woden with a load of desperately needed medical supplies. The pilot, Barton, discovers a stowaway: an eighteen-year-old girl.

The girl, Marilyn, merely wants to see her brother, Gerry, and is not aware of the law."
