Character Journeys in Broadcast 9: Warpath - Which one did you like the most?

  Several characters were focused on in Spinward Fringe Broadcast 9: Warpath. Each had a journey to undertake, whether it was emotional, physical, or political. While they all had a significant role in the overall story, I'm sure everyone had their most and least favourite.

In this survey, I'm asking about the characters we shared a point of view with specifically, so if you are worried that you aren't seeing women from the book listed, please don't. It just so happens that Broadcast 9 only had three chapters that looked at the universe from their point of view. It was an intentional experiment that I enjoyed, found more challenging than I expected and don't regret. Rest assured, we'll be looking at things from a couple female perspectives in Broadcast 10, as well as the male perspective. It's going to be mixed again.

Thanks to everyone who votes. Please discuss your choice in the comments section!

Jake reads like he's 8 feet tall now... That was an interesting therapy he endured! I love the new tech, though I'm still wondering about wormhole weapons like when they took out the station in the blue belt. Triton still has that projector... and now the new toys, wow!

Dr. Anderson became very interesting.

Easily the hardest question I've been asked this decade.
Alice or Jake...hmmm
Think I'll go back to figuring out how many licks it takes to get to the center of a tootsie pop (I always bite)

Dr. Anderson has my vote for character most revealed in this episode. His moral questing fueled by a desire to make up for past sins, either real or imagined, and I think recognition of an unexpected maturation in his thinking regarding his Andro assistant were the most interesting. Watching him go thru the stages of self-recrimination and doubt about his own moral compass in comparison with Dr. Messana and her actions and the surprisingly sentient empathy shown by the Andro were I think my favorite part of Warpath. Second in the running is Minh-Chu who showed a gaping hole in his armor of self-assurance which is seldom if ever seen. This is almost a mirror of Dr. Anderson in terms of facing a big dilemma that required a painfully honest self-examination and found reassurance and comfort from an unlikely and unexpected source. As always a great investiture in character development but as a devoted minion since Omnibus I would like to see details of the broader story evolve. I’m sure you can fit in it with your other projects with a heavy emphasis here on sarcasm.

agree whole-heartedly. i'm kind of guilty about it but i nearly hate the concept of my new favorite author spreading his wings with other projects. i want him to be happy, sucessful and fulfilled but i want so much more spinward fringe forever. i feel bad that i love jake and alice despite them being responsible for the holocaust virus, edxi threat and therefore so much more horror on such a mind bending scale but there it is; great writing and my understanding of, "the law of unexplained consequences". randolf lalonde has awesome overview, character depth, story and character development and scientific research for 'suspension of disbelief' writing skills. i binge read the whole series before the warpath episode came out and was left emotionally exhausted and dying for more. i'm housebound and disabled and isolated so the fringe characters are stand-ins for real life connections and adventure. better than real life, so much like real life, so different than real life; that's great writing!

It's a toss up this time between Alice and Jake. Love the series! and always keep my eye out for more.
