Review: 2019.122 (A Word for Authors)

Pro: Trina’s investigation of the murder also gives us information about the mission and the fascinating Cryo technology used.

Con: The resolution of the mystery is something of a downer, particularly the way the ship simply drops out of contact and disappears.

The statements by the crew are very hard to take seriously with lines like “Her hearty Russian laugh would rumble through the ring.” No one would ever write that in an official statement about a murder.
