Boosterrific Review: This latest episodic installment of the Millennium saga is a refueling at the story's midpoint. Old plotlines are tied off, and new ones are established. This issue is not so much space-holding filler as it is a juggler trying to keep the balls in the air for the many crossover events that depend on the pacing and guidance that this steady-handed mini-series is providing.
