Agree that dream episode just 4 into the series is a poor choice.
1 September 2019 | by bloopvilleSee all my reviews

I do hope that the writing staff is absorbing the feedback. There is potential for a good show, here. I don't need to repeat all the criticism about unappealing characters who would never be selected for a quasi- military mission.

Dangerous missions are not populated by self- focused snarks. Age is not an excuse, as a platoon sized military unit is going to have about the same age profile as this group.

So, to this Episode, number 4.

There is no drama. We know it is Katee Sackoff's show, show we know that she will come out of her dream. So, what we have is an exploration over her guilt of her previous mission, using dream sequences that do not further the main story line.

Dream sequence stories are generally not relevant, because nothing in the dream has downstream consequences to the main story line.

Every leader who had made the life and death choice visits their previous choices, but. in history, hundreds of thousands of leaders, from Sergeants to Generals, have made these choices. They make their choices and accept the consequences. That is what makes them leaders.

In general, the audience has concluded that many of the characters in this show are not fit for the expedition. This seems to confirm that Nico, as well, isn't a true leader.

As the son of a military officer who often had to leave us for various missions, and being aware of the his responsibility and sense of duty at a young age, I can assure you that Nico's family's support system doesn't strike me as real, her guilt over decision is overwrought and the constant angst of the characters seems more to drive plat than to reflect the reality of a mission of this sort.

So, agreeing with most posters that a Dream Sequence show so early is a wast of an episode to try and make a compelling premise into a wathchable show.
