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.

It's a great game ! ! ,

Greatness

Can’t wait for season three on the edge of my chair the whole time listening throughout this last two seasons

The4everclear ,

Woke

Season 1 was great. I was hooked on the story, characters, and world. The second episode of season 2 started with the creators expressing politics and attempting to shame me into agreement. I listen to fiction to escape, don’t throw politics in my face. Series dropped.

Abe Newhouse ,

Noise effects a bit too loud

I enjoy listening immensely, but I sometimes find it hard to enjoy as the sound effects seem to be drowning out the actual narrative. I understand they have to there to help with immersion but would be better if sound effects would be lowered a bit
