Very brief but major spoilers for these episodes behind the cut. Spoil me and die.
The Jovians are human. I win.
Akito is being stupid and OOC to generate interpersonal conflict. I am annoyed.
Yay, prospective undercutting of stupid putting-women-on-pedestals! Even if getting there (like the undercutting of the stupid romantic stuff) makes me cringe.
The factory/artifact found at Jupiter is . . . actual alien technology? Or the leavings of more exiled humans who used the tech to just leave? (That seems a bit much, frankly.)
This show is not very good at transitions: I'd not understood that the Nadesico was transporting a different enemy robot than the one that sent to Mars, they were suddenly back on the ship after being on the shuttle chasing after the escaped pilot with the two women crewmembers, etc.
What are the evil Nergal people going to do for damage control? They seemed much too calm about their big secret being revealed.
