What, Tuesday again? Then it’s time for a new episode of The Human Division, this one titled “The Sound of Rebellion.” Here’s the description:
The Colonial Defense Forces usually protect humanity from alien attack, but now the stability of the Colonial Union has been threatened, and Lieutenant Heather Lee and her squad are called to squash a rebellion on a colony world. It seems simple enough—but there’s a second act to the rebellion that finds Lee captive, alone, and armed with only her brains to survive.
Readers may remember Lt. Lee from Episode Three, “We Only Need the Heads.” I thought it’d be worthwhile to give her a spotlight, while also shining a spotlight on a CDF task that I’ve hinted at before but have to date only rarely shown in the Old Man’s War series: The CDF dealing with human rebellions on colony worlds. Because, hey, the Colonial Union is not actually a utopia, you know. This episode also feature a fair amount of action and quick thinking, which I always like, too.
As always, there will be a discussion of today’s episode over at Tor.com, which I will link to as soon as it goes up (update: Here you go!). And of course remember that reviews, at your favorite place to leave reviews, are always appreciated.
Next week, tune in for “The Observers,” which features… a murder mystery!
