All this plot advancement is terrific, but the perpetual cliffhangers do put a damper on conversation!

If you ask me, it's less the cliffhangers and more the fortnightly pacing of the main story that dampers the conversation.

 

Since we've caught up, I won't bother with spoiler tags

 

I'm sure I mentioned this earlier in this thread, but currently I'm of the mind that the Saboteur wrecked the communication equipment out of benevolence.

 

I feel like the Saboteur is either someone who (1) was aware s/he'll be targeted for assassination at some point, or (2) was an accomplice in the plot who was promised mercy from his fate but was ultimately betrayed.

Whatever the case, getting stranded in space wasn't something they had wanted, and instead decides to join the crew in the voyage back home. However, s/he decided to prevent the crew from communicating back to Earth and sending an SOS.

 

Because if their assailants know Group B5 is still alive, they'll hatch another plan to kill them.

That's how I'm feeling about this.

 

Though at this point, one has to wonder whether the Sphere was supposed to be on McPa or not.

No updates since Dec 15th, which might be expected for the holidays...  They've also removed the "updates tuesdays and thursdays" note from the page, though, which they never did before, not even when it wasn't updating Tuesdays and Thursdays.  Is the official English one kaput, paywalled, or other?

@gamria Thank you very much for sharing the Astra chapters. I just get this from viz when I try to read Astra: "ごめんなさい! CONTENT NOT AVAILABLE Unfortunately this content is not available in your location.". I was sure that I would never be able to read the Astra Lost in Space until I find this thread. From now on I will follow this thread for the chapters, summaries and opinions.

 

*Ah, oh yes, I just made this account to thank you kkk.
