Does anyone know the name of the short story in which the characters only lived a few days from birth to death? I believe it involved a ship where time was experienced normally. I recall the story plot from my younger days, but don't remember the author or the title.

  • Do you remember the media? Was it a book? Television? etc. You may want to also provide the rough time you read/saw it. "Your younger days" is kind of not helpful. – bitmask Nov 8 '12 at 21:22

    By 'younger days' Are we talking, 90s? 80s? Earlier? – AncientSwordRage Nov 8 '12 at 21:22

Sounds like "Frost and Fire" by Ray Bradbury.

  • One of my favorites; short but very evocative. – K-H-W Nov 8 '12 at 22:36
  • Without a doubt. Loved this story. – Kyle Jones Nov 8 '12 at 23:40
  • There was even a movie made out of it, if I remember well. – vsz Nov 9 '12 at 7:05
  • @vsz - Yep; 'Quest' – K-H-W Nov 9 '12 at 18:50

    No question to my mind this is the answer, but maybe writing some more details about the story might make this a better answer. – Broklynite Nov 2 '17 at 11:20
