I have really enjoyed this series so far, especially the interesting play of humanity, freedom, and civilization, and how many gradations of those concepts there are in the book.  I liked this one in particular because of the later reveal to the others that the captain used to be a ship.

After a few minutes I didn’t notice the she pronoun being always used, and imagined amorphous people until they did some action that I considered particularly masculine or feminine.  These actions were typically were they being pursued or pursuing when it came to sex.
