Review: 2020.102 (A Word for Authors)

Pro: It’s a decently exciting adventure in space. Dix is a good guy who cares about the poor guys signed up for 20 years of duty at Neptune whose lives might be endangered if they don’t get this shipment. He definitely sheds no tears for the pirates.

Con: How come Dix can easily detect the pirates but they don’t notice him at all? And why didn’t he start by reporting them?
