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

Review: 2019.294 (A Word for Authors)

Pro: This has the bones of a good story. A loveable family. A bold mission to the stars. A threat from Luddites. A problem to solve in space. There’s a lot of good material here.

Con: The story is ruined by the unending infodumps—even infodumps disguised as dialogue. Infodumps about things of zero importance to the story.
