Up until now what we've been getting is mostly scene setting, albeit interesting, very well written scene setting. But now things are beginning to set off and I don't think it's going to be the smoothest of rides for our new captain and her somewhat divisive crew.
One quibble (sorry). The Agamemnon is apparently the first ship to detect the Omega particle, is certainly the closest to it. But within a matter of minutes, and before contacting Maya, Admiral Glover has diverted another ship to help out. It's possible,
it just feels a bit rushed to me.
That aside, the usual high quality prose and characterisation.
