Wow what a plot, a mist turning into water, a liquid with a life of its own, drowning crews of a ship in deep space. How can you possibly drown in a wall of water out in deep space. The author must be really creative to conjure up stories like this. Thanks for sharing.

It's a great story, Gareth. I plan to ride this space journey out to the bitter end. In fact, it's rare to read science fiction on FanStory, especially science fiction mated with horror, aka, ALIEN or Predator.
It's also a very well thought out, carefully plotted storyline. Shades of 2001:A Space Odyssey meets Pandorum, of sorts.
Thanks for the update. I'll be saving this for future reference.

    Many thanks for reading this one, Dean. I thought I 'owed' this. I really appreciate the enthusiasm and assistance you have given me for this, along with quite a few others.

This is an excellent summation of your story to date. I came into it at about chapter three. This has brought me to where I'd rather be. Now, I will understand more clearly what is going on. Thank you for including this reminder of the events that have led to the present. It was a great idea. Best wishes, my friend.

Always with respect,

An excellent running summary of the action. Only a few spags:

She experience some difficulties coming out of stasis, [She EXPERIENCES some difficulties ...]

Meanwhile, Dr Samantha Jackson is awaken in the next stasis room. [...Jackson is AWAKENED...]

Wow! This is really something. This is the first I have read and am anxious to read more. This certainly leaves many questions. I will look forward to Part XIV, but will try and find some back parts to read.
Do you really plan to kill off all your characters?
Thanks for the summary.

    Hi Joyce. This is the nature of the piece too. One of the characters states it in a chapter that perspective gets warped. Up to this point is open to interpretation as to who is dead, missing or otherwise indisposed! Many thanks for giving this a read. I really appreciate it. GMG

Hi Gareth--
A six for the mighty effort to catch all us retard readers up. I came in somewhere around VI I think, so I appreciate the catch up. One thing I still feel I am missing is...the why of this mission. Why are these folks in deep space? Where are they going? Some sort of scientific mission I presume. Maybe that's handled somewhere near the beginning? But I think it...might help the reader hang tags on these six names. Which is not meant as criticism.

But, your review here helps me to see what I might have to do with similar long piece project I started posting, then interrupted. 10,000 words, peanuts!

I've been sending short stories to this contest called Six Fold where the limit's 5,000 words and nearly everybody hits it and I have discovered just how hard it is to read 18 5,000 word short stories over a three week period!

Thanks for the update.
Jeff

    Many thanks for the great rating Jeff. I wasn't sure about the update but felt it was necessary. I agree 10000 words is nothing in the real world but on FanStory its a mammoth!

    As to the mission, that will be revealed shortly as to talk about it earlier may have led down different paths, or perhaps signpost some things to come.

    Much appreciated as always. G

This has been super cool reading in this condensed form. It's like buying the DVD of a series and playing all the episodes one after the other. This was good and I can get back in for the rest of the ride now.

This "mist" or "liquid" sounds of course like an entity that is sentient, but almost like it somehow lacks an ability to communicate. It seems sometimes malevolent, but there might an opposing force, well done, enough mysterious tension and and action ongoing to keep a reader interested G, well done, very considerate doing, only been a sporadic reader in the past, blessings, Roy

I commented on pat XIII and now I get the overall plot better. It sounds interesting, I will go back and read the other chapters. This was a good recap and it appears to be well thought out and written.
