The point of a genre-bender is to take a well known, genre related trope or story starter and transplant it into another genre. The Hyperdrive is Offline Dead in space and dead in the water. Becalmed. Left without a hyperdrive in the middle of an epic escape. The heroes only have a few minutes to make things work right or they will be caught. Or maybe they have limited food or air and must survive a week on three days worth. No doubt you've seen or read about this happening. It is a heavy player in space sagas and pirate movies. But what about elsewhere? Take the idea of being stalled out or becalmed and translate it into another genre! Use your imagination and have fun! Write a short scene or story about being becalmed.
