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

Pro: The best thing about this story is the non-stop excitement.

And the robot’s character is amusingly snarky.

Con: The robot is supposedly escaping because his creator warned him that he contained a secret detrimental to the cyborgs. But he doesn’t try to do anything to the cyborgs; he just wants to escape to the stars and leave humanity to its fate. That’s disappointing.

Also, Quinn has some awfully corny dialogue.
