I thought this was an improvement over the two-part pilot. Hopefully it will keep improving.

This one felt like a more joined together episode, but the jury is still out.

Funny, I liked the pilot better than this. I felt like the android trying to repair the ship bit was forced tension. But hey, that ending is going to keep me watching next week! So are One through Six all lookalikes for their evil counterparts or?

Interesting idea. They were the miners' defense plan all along - dupes of those coming after them.

I also was not a huge fan of the android going out for the repair; it seemed pretty obvious that she's still critical for their survival and that they can't 100% run the ship on their own. That said, I didn't find it unbelievable for none of the crew to volunteer to go out instead. So maybe they could have used slightly better writing, but it wasn't a complete idiot ball moment.

I liked that right after the conversation where 1 tries to blame the mind sabotage on 3 and 2 says well never know we find a way we could learn more and 1 becomes the most likely subject.

I know this is not uncommon but I find this sense of structure to be very pleasing.

I agree the Android going on Checkov's EVA wasn't as tense as they hoped but at least they built on it, going past cliché and into character growth.
