Robot Maven has been sent to Mars. Good luck, tin soldier. Watched yet another video of Anita Sarkeesian over at Feminist Frequency. I always find her points to be matter-of-fact and dead-on. Yay, Anita!

A lot more people would buy Segways if they were rocket powered. I’m just saying. Y’Know, if anyone from Segway is reading this.
You’re getting back at me for the kitty bacon comments, aren’t you?
@Nessus: I think it looks more like a rocket scooter than a rocket Segway.
@Aqua, deleted your comment. People, please don’t post plot theories! 🙂
Mmmmmm Coyote steak.
I still feel that ACME makes the best rocket scooters.
I’ve loved Spacetrawler and I do like this interlude, but more than being a fan of SpaceTrawler I am a fan of yours and I can’t but help feeling a bit of eagerness to see what you come up with next. Not that I don’t like this story… just that it feels a bit like “filler” until the next new adventure in the life of Chris is revealed. Looking forward…
@Grizzly, thanks! Yeah, I could see it coming off that way. It was a struggle to write, in that “Spacetrawler” is a story with character arcs and plot arcs, and it was done. Done! And so I worked hard to come up with a self-contained plot that would run in 3 months. I’m happy with it, but I do think it is something that wants to be more. 🙂
And Emily provides an answer to the age-old question
What? I’m talking about “would we miss drive-throughs in space?”!
is that big ol plume of FIRE dangerous to passerbyes?
I feel, as a matter of personal taste, that steak should never “splorp.” In the same way you can buy a voice for an electric car, they should make butcherish and meatly sounds for a steak, even coyote.
How to plot Emily’s course through the galaxy: find out how many synthesizers have made this particular dish.
Surprise! The GSA (Galactic Security Agency) will have that data if they get time to look at it…
She was raised by coyotes, so she must then be a cannibal.
As she explains it, War Pig, she’s just that bent on survival. It’s something the coyotes taught her.
Well considering how much she’s been brawling the last few pages, yeah, Emily! Replace that lost iron! A girl has gotta eat!
Actually, Emily kills and eats a coyote in her very first appearance.
@War Pig, it’s not cannibalism if you don’t eat someone from your own pack. Or if you only eat the losers. You know: the old, the sick, the lame.
(Hey, Timmy! C’mere! I need a snack!)
Where was the first mention of a brother? I’m a little lost.
@Kathleen, Dimitri mentions him here (3rd panel), and that finally hits Emily’s Brain here (5th panel). Hope that helps!
Segway pit stop:) I wonder if Laylin and other representatives of their species have been evolved to hunt from a pit or other places located lower than the normal ground. A hunter needs 3-dimensional view and apparently their massive beak can’t provide a level plane depth perception. Or maybe they have a natural aviating predator? Interesting anyway, but the biggest question remains still unanswered: can they literally “shut their mouths”?
