With some luck and ingenuity, Armstrong and Andrews were able to manually combust the thrusters and move the Phoenix out of the path of the powerless Geronimo.

Out of danger, the crew began plotting their escape from the anomaly. Andrews and Cameron managed to launch two more probes and get a read on the other ships in the anomaly, while T'Lona and 78 restored auxiliary power. Meanwhile, Chef's resentment towards Ensign Ozuwara boiled over in a heated scene involving flying pots and pans. Working together, the senior staff improvised and coordinated a solution with the other ships, firing anti-gravitons into the center of the anomaly and dispersing it completely.

Now free from the vortex, the Phoenix is being towed back to Station K-7 by the Antietam.

I let go of the reins for parts of this episode, and I think it worked to its benefit. The situation and end goal seemed to be clear to everyone, and my lack of direct input caused speculation that added a layer of depth. I liked that, and it's something I'd like to see more of. Of course, player input goes both ways. It can add or detract from the experience. I hate to single out anyone in particular, but there's one sore spot in this episode that needs to be addressed before the series continues. I'll handle that privately.

Aside from that, I think this was a 3 or a 4, closer to 4. We had a clear goal and everyone worked towards it.

I enjoyed the RP and I think it worked well. It was also pretty inclusive for most characters.
One thing I would say is that when plans are being discussed, I think the mod could be quicker to give advice on the suggestions the characters are generating.

I liked this week a lot more than the last two episodes. There was great cooperation between the senior staff on the bridge and you were much more on point, Serris.
