The Interstellar Ark,, Hermes, is heading for Tau Ceti and a planet likely to be suitable for human habitation. On board are exactly one thousand inhabitants, all but one, a Monitor to act as an aid to the ship's AI, are sleeping in pods as they journey. With only a few hours remaining to Orion before his time as Monitor comes to an end, he must choose a successor.
Narrator Justin Thomas James gives clear and sympathetic voice to Orion, the sixth monitor, as he ponders his final hours. With perfect pacing and intonation, his is an excellent performance.
A beautifully crafted short story by the author of the Titanworld series. It is atmospheric and charming, and very human
Taking under an hour to read, it is still guaranteed to leave a powerful impression. Recommended.
