Three episodes in…

By Wayne Basta, author of Seraph's Gambit

Feb 11, 2019: "Overhull" is the story of a renegade mechanic, sticking it to the powerful corporations by fixing their broken ships. Hull is a former military officer who retired to fix old ships but now w young girl, whose family Hull helped years ago, shows up eager to learn.

The first three episodes throw a lot at the wall. But they don’t really stick. The core idea here is solid. Quirky engineer, eager apprentice, evil corporation inevitably going to make their lives difficult. Unfortunately, it feels like nothing more than that checklist. The world and characters don’t feel real but rather just ideas.

That said, it’s a good first draft. There’s a lot to work with there. It just needs subtlety.
