Oh, my. I felt bad enough for her with the isolation and crappy food, but that last bit was quite the sucker punch. I hope she'll be all right. I'm a little surprised the food robot seems to be the only supervision prisoners get other than the occasional shave. They must be very sure of their security system and really not care if prisoners die.
Author's Response: Thanks for the review. Yes they were far to sure of their food robots supervision systems.

Yep. Maybe she should have thought things through a little more carefully. But it's got to win her and the Federation some brownie points with the Centaurans that she agreed to trust them, right? That the Federation is going through diplomatic channels to secure Lily's release, rather than resorting to saber-rattling and military threats?
I feel it was poor judgment - due most likely to lack of experience with alien cultures - that led the Centaurans to send only robots to deal with Lily for five weeks, never once checking on her physical well-being. This will prove to be a learning curve for both sides, methinks.
Author's Response: Thanks LBD for further feedback, yes I think the Federation being diplomatic rather than saber rattling does help the medium and long term relationship. Yes a learning curve for both sides.

I was afraid of something like this happening. The Centaurans clearly have no frame of reference to deal with aliens. Not only considering their different physiology but they also seem to lack any consideration for diplomatic overtures.
They're lucky they didn't do this to a Klingon or their world would be ash now. Of course a Klingon would probably not haven gotten herself in that position in the first place.
Author's Response: Thanks for another review, Indeed, Lily took a risk and it didn't turn out well. Yes I hadn't thought of that but I do think a first contact with a Klingon commander, would of seen the Centaurans Home World take a battering.
