  1. I noticed there seems to be a distinct parallel between the characters of Morriumur and M-Bot; reproduction, or birth, seems to be an important theme for both of them. Morriumur is a dione "draft," or an individual who hasn't been born yet. They hope to earn their birth by proving themself as a warrior. Likewise, M-Bot longs to be a sentient living being which, among other things, is capable of reproduction. At one point in the story, Spensa helps him create a drone and M-Bot entertains the idea of giving his "child" a personality. Unfortunately, there is something in his code that forbids him from duplicating his code at will. But by the end of the story, both Morriumur and M-Bot achieve their goals of reproduction; the former having proved themself in battle and thus deemed worthy of birth, the latter having become a wanted fugitive on Starsight and therefore painstakingly copied his code line-by-line between forced shut-downs into the previously mentioned drone. One had a great ending. The other, not so great. I'm not sure about the significance of this parallel. Will this continue into the 3rd and 4th novels? Can we draw conclusions about the outcome of one character based on another? Another somewhat obvious parallel was between the humans, Spensa and Brade, who were both excellent examples of self-fulfilling prophecy. Brade, and her pessimistic acceptance of humans-are-evil. Simply put, if you always think you're a failure, you'll likely be a failure. As with Brade, she always believed she was evil, aggressive, and capable of violence - and that's exactly what she amounted to. On the other hand, Spensa was always optimistic and as a result, she managed to divert the delver thus saving two major civilizations and winning over much of her crew and Cuna to her cause. Although these two are like opposites, they're also very similar in this regard. Again, I'm not sure if it's safe to draw any conclusions from these observations. Perhaps it's just a cool literary tool. Have you noticed any parallels between characters in this story? I feel like Jorgen and his journey must have a parallel somewhere but I can't really figure it out. Vapor? Gul'zah? Hmmm, no probably not Gul'zah the burl...
