I'm a librarian who loves anime, manga, and reading a wide variety of genres.
I'm guessing that Kerensky seeking Duvall out in order to thank her isn't a good sign. Here's hoping she manages to avoid a dramatic and tragic away mission death.
A question for folks who are bigger Star Trek fans than me (the one I watched the most was ST: Next Generation, but that was ages ago): who's Star Trek's version of Lieutenant Kerensky? For those who haven't read this book yet, Kerensky is the one who gets horribly injured a lot and yet never killed.
