    Didn't quite get the ending, but really enjoyed it. A slightly different look at the whole "red shirts" space phenomenon. 3.5 stars, rounded up, because I would read more by this author and I liked the female character. She had agency.

    A goofy tale of space travel that makes no sense whatsoever. At least it had a sort of happy ending.
