Description

Isabel, during a naming ceremony: " If we have food, she will eat. If we have air, she will breathe. If we have fuel, she will fly." Team Dad: The Captain Ashby Santoso, who is very much A Father to His Men and looks after the safety and well-being of his whole crew, which functions like a family.

Punny Name: Port Coriol, a play on "corporeal". Changes to a Meaningful Name in the second book, which tells the story of two artificial humans, one a clone, the other an AI, living at the port who make new lives for themselves. Humans] take the milk, they add some ingredients - don't ask me, I have no idea what - and then pour the mess into a... a thing. I don't know. A container. And then... They leave it out until bacteria colonise it to the point of solidifying. (...) Oh no, I - stars, I forgot the worst part. They don't make cheese with their own milk. They make it from other animals.

Kill the Cutie: The only major character death in the story is the consistently sweet and kind Benevolent A.I. Lovey. Small Town Boredom: Kip feels as though nothing happens on the Asteria. To relieve his boredom, he partakes in some teenage rebellious activity (sneaking into a tryst club, smoking redreed, etc.) in the hopes it'll spruce up his life. His character arc is about him learning that he might not actually want the kind of adventure he craves, and that home has its own advantages. Ashby and Pei have to deal with their relationship this way, because they both know that Pei would end up in serious trouble if anyone found out due to Interspecies Romance being taboo amoung Aeluons. After the failed punch, Pei decides that she doesn't care who finds out anymore.

While Aandrisk family structures are already fairly complicated and, in some cases, voluntary, it doesn't detract from the revelation that Sissix chose the otherwise-non-Aandrisk crew of the Wayfarer as her feather family.How We Got Here: At the end of the first chapter, Pepper admits to Sidra that part of the reason she's helping Sidra is because she was raised by an AI herself. Most of the rest of the book then alternates between Sidra's current present and Pepper's childhood past, showing how she met Owl and Blue, until Pepper's story concludes in one of Sidra's chapters near the end. Jenks – The Wayfarer's other technician. Human and shorter than most people in the Galactic Commons, but chooses not to get this changed. But Rosemary gets more than she bargained for with the Wayfarer. The crew is a mishmash of species and personalities, from Sissix, the friendly reptilian pilot, to Kizzy and Jenks, the constantly sparring engineers who keep the ship running. Life on board is chaotic, but more or less peaceful - exactly what Rosemary wants.

Also inverted quite a bit; since several main characters are Human, and The Protagonist, Rosemary, is a fairly sheltered Human who's had very little prior interaction with non-Human species, the Human characters note either to themselves or out loud the many things that frighten, puzzle, or fascinate them about other species.Death of Personality: Of the Blank Slate variety. After the Wayfarer escapes from the sabotaged wormhole, they are forced to hard reset Lovey because she's too far gone to save as is. Unfortunately, this also wipes out her accumulated databases, essentially resetting her to factory standards and making her a different person with no memory of her previous time with the crew or her love for Jenks.

Rosemary had a reason for wanting to start a new life. Before she changed her last name, she was Rosemary Harris, the daughter of a corporate shark who was arrested for selling weapons to Toremi clans and leading to thousands of deaths. While she had nothing to do with his crimes, her reputation on Mars was ruined forever. Thus she changed her last name and took a job as far away from Mars as she could. Last-Name Basis: Unlike everyone else on the ship, who go by a First-Name Basis (and a few of them don't even have surnames at all), Artis Corbin is only ever called "Corbin" by his crewmates. a b The Long Way To A Small Angry Planet Is This Year's Most Delightful Space Opera, by Andrew Liptak, at Io9; published September 12, 2015; retrieved July 6, 2017I Choose to Stay: In the denouement, Corbin has forcibly cured Ohan of the Whisperer, meaning that the latter is no longer a Pair. Ohan states that, according to the customs and beliefs of the Sianat, he should go to the Heretics' colony, where Solitaries (Sianats who refused or have been cured of the Whisperer) are expected to live out the rest of their days. However, that isn't what he wants, so he decides to remain on the Wayfarer to continue to be with his friends as their Navigator, to their happiness. Religious and Mythological Theme Naming: All the ships in the Exodus Fleet are named after gods of the night or stars from various Earth cultures. Examples include the Oxomoco (Aztec), the Asteria (Greek), and the Al-Qaum (Nabataean).
