Nothing fancy here -- just the simple audio diary of a girl in space. Also, there’s this weird and potentially ominous light in the distance that seems to be growing steadily closer. Listen twice a month for science, guns, trust, anti-matter, truth, beauty, inner turmoil, and delicious cheeses. It’s all here. In space.

Smart and captivating
I'm a fan after the first episode. Love the intellect behind the dialogue. The "aloneness" theme is compelling, thought provoking. Like a good movie, the ideas and visuals created in my mind keep replaying long after the first encounter. Can't wait to see what's next.
I did not really care for the lack of enthusiasm and realness in the readers voice. I kept trying and trying to give it a chance but in the end I was left entirely too bored in unengaged. It felt like someone in a studio was reading a script not like I was eating cheese in space with her.
An original story with an inventive premise that refuses to be pinned down. It's something of a mix between Amelie, Firefly, Lost, and Red Dwarf with just a dash of Doctor Who. I can't wait to see where this series is headed!
