Serena Nelson writes: "The future comes in many varieties. We have the vast uptopian galaxy spanning federations. We have the dark and depressing post apocalyptic wastelands of nuclear war. We have the glitzy but oppressive tales of Cyberpunk and repression. And then we have tales of deep space exploration where mankind spreads out discovering or creating unimaginable horrors whose only purpose is to get rid of the cancerous infestation of our species. Stasis squarely lies in the latter category. And with very good effect."
