Review: 2019.075 (A Word for Authors)

Pro: Obviously the story is about saving Skidbladnir and, secondarily, it’s about Saga deciding what she herself wants to do in the long term.

Con: Saga doesn’t have much of a role in the story. This is engineer Novik’s story more than anything else, and, objectively speaking, he seems to have lost his mind. At a minimum, he’s made some career-destroying choices here.

I’m not sure what the point of the episodes of Andromeda Station is. They’re kind of cute, but rather detached from the action.
