This series is developing into a unique experience that always leaves me wanting MORE ! I wait for the release of each episode rather than dl the entire set at once to extend my enjoyment, as it's all too short in the end. A second season of this storyline would be very welcome.

I guess I was being optimistic hoping a drone would pick up Daoket. Then him and Terran would travel the universe righting wrongs.
