So I'm finally able to read. It's taking a while because I also started knitting. I knit my teacher some Lord of the Ring themed gloves, and I'm knitting myself some Borg themed gloves. They're going to look awesome when they're done, but they're making it so I'm reading much slower. Worth it, but... yeah.
I'm really loving this series. This particular storyline - and this is the start of this storyline - is one of the more twisted one: Getaway not only takes over The Lost Light, he proves to be a dictator, perhaps rivaled only by Megatron in his heyday.
What you are allowed to do, where, and when? It's all tightly controlled. Patients are kept being locked doors - comatose patients. Twenty four crew mates are unaccounted for, with no good reason for them being missing. Those who disagree with Getaway? Well, they tend to end up comatose.
There are moments of humor, but this is a bleak enough storyline - bleak in the way that it seems to mirror some real life in an eerie way - that I never really felt like the tension was broken by the humor. Still, it works. The balance is a little off, but I really, really want to know what happens next - and it just so happens that I have issue eleven up next...
