Mini-Review (click to view--possible spoilers)

Pro: The ending is very moving.

Con: The SF part is irrelevant to the story. If Rick were in Ohio, back from Iraq, nothing else would change. The science is very, very bad here. Europa is not a moon of Saturn, for example. None of the outer moons is suitable for terraforming, since they're made of ice.
