The voice acting is compelling and the sound design sets the atmosphere brilliantly. I'm worried about where the plot may end up going down the road, but I think if it stays in this psychological mystery theme, it can end out great.

a melodramatic emotional meltdown in space. quite tedious.

Good premise, acting, and ambiance. The extended Chinese sections and exclamations start to feel gimmicky and forced after a while, though. There's a pattern to bilingual "switching", and this isn't it.

Description

Nolira is an agronomist tasked with establishing agriculture in a new solar system, but when she wakes up on a now- empty colony ship, the whole of her plan disappears. The ship has been set adrift, with numerous mission-critical problems requiring immediate attendance outside of her area of expertise. Nolira is aided by the ship’s malfunctioning AI, which acts as her confidant and companion during the fight for survival.
