Cassie Kimbrel’s review published on Letterboxd:
Here we go, finally beginning my expedition into the horrors of space war and governmental incompetence. This is a promising start to what will hopefully live up to all the hype surrounding the show.
I like the presentation of it, including storylines involving even the grunts who probably can't effect the end result that well. It was quite a nice relaxing watch thanks to the tranquil classical music used. The battle near the end of the pilot features the song Bolero and it's used just as it should be, I always love scenes which use Bolero, always such a nice unraveling.
