Reactions and Reviews

Mammalian Hermaphrodites! I do realise the federation had reached far out, and it's possible they exist but we take too long to find this out. The story is quite simple, routine missions and new planet with new plant life; big trouble with Jen-Wae for plant life. Familiar theme with routine style of rescue. Characters well drawn artwork well executed for this story. Pity I think it should have had a little more oomph!! [1]
