wonder cannot be understood from the inside

Kit watched Alexander with interest. He’d never seen anyone stare at anything with such wide-eyed wonder.

Perhaps, serving on the Lady Luck had made him jaded. He looked at what was happening and saw it as normal. This was what was supposed to happen. This was how the ship was supposed to work!

Alexander, though, stared with such awe that it made Kit look at it again – more closely. He frowned for a moment, trying to see it from Alexander’s point of view. He couldn’t seem to manage it. To him, it was simply what was supposed happen when the ship enters slip space.
