Captain Sophia Coloma of the Clarke has a simple task: Ferry around representatives from Earth in an aging spaceship that the Colonial Union hopes to sell to them. But nothing is as simple as it seems, and Coloma discovers the ship she’s showing off holds suprises of its own...and it’s not the only one with secrets.

Tales from the Clarke returns us to The rest of of the B-Team. While waiting for Reassignment. The Crew of the Clarke Find themselves assigned a mission that like the First mission is more than it seems. Captain Sophia Coloma proves why she's a ship's Captain. The story itself is simple, while showing off a Ship that The CU plans to sell off to Earth to pave the way for diplomacy. a simple oversight provides proof that that there's more to the mission than meets the eye. the story plays itself off as a one off chapter in the overall narrative, and it fits well into the overall tale.
I'm a big fan of SF/F/Horror, and all things in between and out.
This week's episode of the Human Division is pretty standard. We get into Captain Colonna's head, which is nice, and we catch back up with Harry Wilson (who apparently is no longer a hostage). There's possible sabotage, and a set-up, and funny baseball stuff. It felt pretty standard to me this time...the way sometimes TV shows can when they're in the middle of the season. It was a fun little ride, but it couldn't really compete with the last two episodes.
