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

Pro: The mission is accomplished, the pirates are routed, and the general’s plot is defeated.

Con: The three astronauts were way too confident that no one could overhear their radio conversation.

Darlene’s secrecy about her vertigo endangered everyone else. It’s annoying that she suffers no consequences.
