    One thought on “Yeoman (A Vintage Short)”

    1. Didn't quite get the ending, but really enjoyed it. A slightly different look at the whole "red shirts" space phenomenon. 3.5 stars, rounded up, because I would read more by this author and I liked the female character. She had agency.

    2. Fun, but cynical, take on the Star Trek red shirt trope. (view spoiler)[(Nice non-cynical ending though.) (hide spoiler)]
