This was a bit cheesy. Mi'Kel was portrayed very much like a woman, and that bothered me. His mannerisms, his appearance, his clothes, and how he reacted to the pregnancy. He's an alien. Give him a bit more foreign mannerisms. His planet was dying so they adapted to the change and men now carry, although many not to term. But although he was humanoid, I felt he should have had some more glaring differences from humans. Mainly in the way his body handled pregnancy. Sure, some bits were explained, but then it turned out he was all typically hormonal. Almost like he became a simpering little lady. It bothered me. The story as a whole was good, but it needed a bit more development to be believable.
