Solid story, good and engaging plot. T’Lana and Nave were good and memorable original characters. Picard felt a little off for me but he is a really tough guy to capture!

Svetlana Alexievich
“Do you remember how it was in Tolstoy? Pierre Bezukhov is so shocked by the war, he thinks that he and the whole world have changed forever. But then some time passes, and he says to himself: “I’m going to keep yelling at the coach-driver just like before, I’m going to keep growling like before.” Then why do people remember? So that they can determine the truth? For fairness? So they can free themselves and forget? Is it because they understand they’re part of a grand event? Or are they looking into the past for cover? And all this despite the fact that memories are very fragile things, ephemeral things, this is not exact knowledge, but a guess that a person makes about himself. It isn’t even knowledge, it’s more like a set of emotions”
Svetlana Alexievich, Voices from Chernobyl

Svetlana Alexievich
“I've wondered why everyone was silent about Chernobyl, why our writers weren't writing much about it -- they write about the war, or the camps, but here they're silent. Why? Do you think it's an accident? If we'd beaten Chernobyl, people would talk about it and write about it more. Or if we'd understood Chernobyl. But we don't know how to capture any meaning from it. We're not capable of it. We can't place it in our human experience or our human time-frame. So what's better, to remember or to forget?”
Svetlana Alexievich, Voices from Chernobyl: The Oral History of a Nuclear Disaster

Svetlana Alexievich
“Is the world as it’s depicted in words the real world? Words stand between the person and his soul.”
Svetlana Alexievich, Voices from Chernobyl

Svetlana Alexievich
“Don’t write about the wonders of Soviet heroism. They existed—and they really were wonders. But first there had to be incompetence, negligence, and only after those did you get wonders: covering the embrasure, throwing yourself in front of a machine gun. But that those orders should never have been given, that there shouldn’t have been any need, no one writes about that.”
Svetlana Alexievich, Voices from Chernobyl

Svetlana Alexievich
“Victory is not an event for us, but a process. Life is a struggle. An overcoming. That's why we have this love of floods and fires and other catastrophes. We need an opportunity to demonstrate our "courage and heroism.”
Svetlana Alexievich, Voices from Chernobyl: The Oral History of a Nuclear Disaster
