Great sound effects, excellent voice acting and a story that is slow but more and more interesting over time. Lost a star due to some shockingly bad editing, such as repeating dialogue and obvious missed extra words.

Great thriller about waking up in a huge empty damaged spaceship.

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.
