Um, no.

LDS, as near as I can tell, determinedly take their own culture with them, which they're trying to convince the benighted residents of wherever they wound up to join. The point of the trip taken by the people in my head is that they're supposed to be primarily learning, not teaching.

-- apologies to LDS if I've actually got that wrong. I do not take proselytizing well (at least unless it's to people who have actively requested to hear it.)

-- how a society would keep it from turning into attempts at conversion, and/or a pure formality that nobody actully learns anything from, over the course of three thousand years is another question. There are multiple reasons this thing hasn't been published (though certainly among them is that I haven't written most of it yet.)
