Five episodes in. I was expecting Yamato Damashi and nonsensical adulation of high birth. So far it's fleshed out representations of the ruling elite, believable interstellar politics, and a plausible representation of eugenics.
The pacing is a little slow by contemporary standards, but I'm not bored. The only thing that bothered me was that there was so much security for small arms on a military vessel. I understand it's the bridge, but you need biometrics from the captain for just a pistol? When I saw the safe, I assumed there was some unobtanium or macguffin.
I have no idea why a nobility exists in the age of eugenics though. I sure hope they aren't going to brush over it with a claim of genetic superiority. Once you do that the only rational argument to justify a ruling elite is pointing out the failures of a top heavy society and the need for a subservient class or proletariat. That's just depressing and too close to reality for me to enjoy the sexy space elves.
Lets write a story /m/
