“We’re going to deep into something that was for me always very tantalizing and to tell that story through a character who is on a journey that is going to teach her how to get along with others in the galaxy,” Fuller told reporters.

“For her to truly understand something that is alien, she has to first understand herself.”

I wish my first love Joe Greenwood was around to see this. He and his amazing Dad Gordon could binge watch together.
