Reactions and Reviews

[Program, reviewed by Aralias]: Quickly following from Dayna's shocking death - Dayna's shocking resurrection! This is a nice place to go with the sentient ship/sentient computer idea. I like that Avon is the one who really doesn't accept ressurected!Dayna. I also like the way her gradual sentience/the trappedness was portrayed - it worked a lot better than Blake/Avon/Tarrant's in the earlier stuff. The stuff with them trapped on the ship also worked well (and Dayna not dying because she was an android - nice working of the concept for plot business), as did Blake's solution to Avon stalking off. Bless.[2]
