Trivia

While the story is reminiscent of the classic Star Trek episode "For the World is Hollow and I have Touched the Sky", the concept of a biosphere, a damaged generational spacecraft about to be destroyed by a star, and a semi-agrarian society that religiously suppresses knowledge of the truth, was the premise of the Canadian-produced television series "The Starlost".

Not perfect, but very strong entry.
3 October 2017 | by (Norwich, England) – See all my reviews

Although the subject matter is not "never seen", if science fiction was restricted to only cover ground that no show or book had previously covered, it would be a dead genre.

The story develops well, and is told in a way that makes sense. The humour mostly fits in with the plot, and does not damage the narrative. The episode characters are relatable and realistic - and the final scenes do carry emotional weight.

All told, a good continuation of a series that is going far deeper than most expected.
