    Interesting story

    This was an interesting read and story came together nicely. Giving us a sneek peek if you will of life of a young lady promoted on a ship and tasked to learn ship operations, and also learn about a space vehicle they come across on their journey. Imagine BattlestarGalatica ship being led by religious zealot and keeping order on the ship. Gave it 4 stars instead of 5 because you had to carefully read ssome of the speaking to figure out what thy were talkng about because they pronounce it out differently than usual.

    An interesting perspective.

    What do you do with a catastrophic truth. Accept it, or try to destroy it. A good treatment.

    Interesting and whimsical short story.

    Interesting short story that is arguably non-plausible, but fun. There could have been some editing done. There were several spots where the written words made no sense. Obviouly spell-checked, though we all know spell-checkers often correct our misspellings to the wrong word.
