    It feels like Ackerman and Narcisse have created a world that they've just dropped us in the middle of. They name drop a lot of people, and places with next to no explanation.Why is everyone afraid of the Weatherman? Who was the previous Cybernary pilot? There are just a lot of unanswered questions.
