The blurb for this tale intrigued me; the scenario seemed so bizarre and yet reading it I found sympathy for the main character and the end just left me wanting more from Stephanie.

The end is less of a surprise than it might have been due to the blurb, but the sense of helplessness, isolation, loss of identity and also an ignorance of the station's location all gel together to bring so much more than one would normally expect from such a short story.
