Ad Astra

This has only gotten better with some time. Won't be for everyone, but it certainly was everything for me. First graph from my CityBeat review to be published next week:

Star Trek famously described space as the final frontier. Ad Astra, an intergalactic odyssey that refuses to glamorize exploration, sees it as the final responsibility. But mankind’s self-inflicted burden, which feeds a desperate need to find fresh resources, search for alien intelligence, and conquer far off lands, comes with a steep emotional cost. It’s especially true for the children of parents who’d rather escape into dark galactic realms of self-mythologizing than deal with the realities of everyday life.
