And just like book #1, here is the sort-of epilogue strip. And below is a thank you video for all of you who helped support me during the Kickstarter campaign (and the rest of you too, for keeping my numbers up, spreading the word, and simply enjoying it).
Oh, my, things just got interesting-er…
“…And what’s this other one over here?… A Therapy-bot?… Well, we certainly don’t need one of those…” *Fwoom!*
Isn’t there also a Medi-Bot? And others?
Wait. The Eebs are going to participate in the evil of using a spacetrawler? Or do they see that as a sunk cost? Anyway, here’s a bread joke for you: http://www.gocomics.com/frankandernest/2012/03/03
Regarding the use of spacetrawlers: the unclamped, newly-liberated Eebs strike me as the sort who do not particularly care as long as it is not them the bad things are being done to.
The Eebs surely don’t really need a bar-bot either, realistically speaking. Can’t they just make their own drinks?

They just melted a planet and are in the process of destroying a galactic civilization for the crime of using eebs as tools. So using other eebs for transportation would be a bit hypocritical. They’re a bit new to he whole ‘rational thinking’ thing, though, so it may take a strip or two to realize, and then rationalize. Or they may tinker up a whole new drive next strip. Hard to predict eebs…
What’s funny is it didn’t even occur to me to ponder this. I’m so confident in the fact that beings set on revenge easily rationalize walking on their fallen brothers for the greater cause.
Which NOW makes me ponder. Not only should I be careful then to look closer at the issue (it’s too easy to sluff something off as black and white if you find it despicable, as I feel about “revenge”), but also (now that you all pointed it out) that’ll be a fun dynamic to touch on at some point in the strip. 🙂
The poor creature there inside the ship was also the first I thought about.
@AlpineBob, maybe they’ll come up with a version of the greased dark light drive all by themselves.
@Christopher, I honestly first read that as, …that’ll be a fun dynamite to touch on.
An explosive topic, so to speak…
As far as beings that can kill you with their brain, I would MUCH prefer dealing with River Tam (from “Firefly” and “Serenity”) over dealing with a single eeb.
The “awwsome” in panel 12, is that a typo or just the way they pronounce it?
@Alpine Bob: “They just melted a planet…” Or as they said in the Navy- “24 empty tubes and a mushroom cloud. It’s Miller Time!”
Welp, a dozen super-powered psychos just took over your ship. Have fun!
The Starbanger has been hijacked!
Quick, Computer, Destruct sequence 1, code 1-1 A!
Just repeating Gillsing’s question about “awwsome” in case Chris didn’t notice it nine months ago.
