The physical and psychological toll of this mission are beginning to wear Adele down, bit by bit. She's got an enormous weight on her shoulders, and it's only going to get heavier from here on out.
A gutsy move by Icheb, but necessary in order to save the life of the drone. Now Adele's going to have to trust he and Maren to get Malik's ship under their control. That's no small thing, given what they've kept from the captain and the highly questionable decisions made by both of them both prior to and during this mission.
Complex. Dangerous. Desperate. There's no shortage of applicable adjectives to their current situation. Damn fine stuff!
