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

Pro: The aliens really are alien, not just thinly-disguised humans.

Con: It’s hard to believe the human travelers are so poorly informed about the aliens they’re travelling with. Likewise, it’s hard to believe such inflexible people were chosen for this.

Some as-you-know-bob dialogue: “Not any more. Honest Secretary Panin, the official head of the mission. But my orders came from a higher authority”

One wonders how the Loonguni ever evolved in the first place.
