If I were to liken this to experiences I am familiar with, I would deem it a mixture of Fringe meets Star Trek with a hint of Dr. Who. I am thoroughly enamored of this series and as soon as morning light dawns (or rather as soon as I wake up since I'm not much of a morning person) I will resume my avid consumption of the second chronicles.
I cannot tell which character holds the most special place in my heart just yet, although I feel it may be Ava (and not because her name is a composition of my initials which I frequently use as a pseudonym). Tahra... How bold, how daring, how perfectly human. Although many of purposely suppress our curiosity or it wilts and dies because it is never nurtured, she epitomizes the curious and yet emotional nature of humanity.
