I read this as an early draft so it was great to read it again in polished form Underwood's Genrenauts series pays tribute to scifi crossed with other genres as his heroes work to fix broken storylines that create dangerous ripple effects on Earth This is the most scif fi of the novellas since they must go to a science fiction world To me it reads as a loving send up to Babylon 5 and other similar shows and I love it There's action political intrigue and humor galore Since it's a novella it's a fast read

Last Week She Was Working Open Mics Now She’s Headed to Outer SpaceRookie Genrenaut Leah Tang gets her first taste of space flight when the team scrambles to fix a story breach in Science Fiction World the domain of starships weird aliens and galactic intrigueOn the space station Ahura 3 Ambassador Kaylin Reed is on the verge. Thanks goes to Tor and the author for the ARCA few weeks in to her new life Leah gets thrown into two yes two major infodumps Poor girl I never guessed that managerial duties in a big corporation could sound like so much technobabble and serve all the same functions but wait This Is SF Of course we have technobabble Especially when we're getting ready for SPACE OPERA Woo WooMy Genre loving friends get ready we're out of the saddle and back in the Saddle but this time we've got alien politics burgeoning alliances mystery and enough fast paced Pew Pew action to make me think I was in a golden age rocket ship and indeed that's the pointGotta save the universe by saving the universe Always the multiple layers I won't give it away but there's a special crossover and some special character development It makes me wonder if the ongoing genre bending events on both sides of the tracks are going to get us into a lot of epic troublesIt's not uite a cliffhanger but it serves as a great continuing story hook that is still self referential in all the story ways it needs to be if it's going to be a self respecting meta Genrenaut Be forewarned Setting is just as important in Space Opera SF as story so don't blink
