The moon landing is in jeopardy and the robots can’t fix it. How will the day be saved?


This short story was kind of reminiscent of Illuminae. Or at least, that’s how I found it. Space ships. Mysterious forces taking over. Robots. It was a fun little adventure. One that was just enough to give me a break in the middle of my studies.

I loved the fact that the lead man was a bit of an older one. One who thought that the battle would be won by the young. I loved that it didn’t end up that way.

This was an easy, short little read. There isn’t a great amount to say about it, because although it was fun, it also wasn’t earthy-shatteringly interesting or engaging. It was just… simple. Exactly the kind of story you need when you’re seriously stressed out.
