DSL December 10, 2018 at 12:58 am 7 months ago She doesn’t travel with that stove anymore. Perhaps she travels with several stoves. Leinglo December 10, 2018 at 1:31 am 7 months ago So…Pilot’s species has a built-in meltagun in their mouths? Jim Campbell December 10, 2018 at 1:39 am 7 months ago You know when I asked you to whisper sweet nothings into my ear? I’ll be fine without that now, thanks. Nova December 10, 2018 at 4:39 am 7 months ago She didn’t have an omelet. Nova December 11, 2018 at 4:40 am 7 months ago 24 hours later I realize the description already said that Christopher Baldwin December 11, 2018 at 9:26 am 7 months ago Hee hee 🙂 rws December 10, 2018 at 7:43 am 7 months ago Some carelessness by the artist. The stove has 5 burners, and 4 controls. Torn December 10, 2018 at 8:57 am 7 months ago Nah, that’s just how quality of design goes for appliances these days. maileguy December 10, 2018 at 9:45 am 7 months ago Three of them make a hidden Mickey, which only needs two controls. Herandar December 10, 2018 at 1:24 pm 7 months ago Often the fifth burner is just a warmer, which is binary and doesn’t require a knob, just a on/off button. Scott December 10, 2018 at 9:05 am 7 months ago The back center burner is typically a “Warming zone” which is operated with an on/off switch rather than a knob. Coyoty December 11, 2018 at 2:03 am 7 months ago But where is the oven control? How does it bake or broil? We are assuming it’s an Earth stove. We shouldn’t expect it to work like one. Likely someone from off-Earth decided to make a knockoff of Earth stoves and didn’t get all the details right. Gregg Eshelman December 16, 2018 at 3:37 am 7 months ago It’s like the ordinary Earth style salt shakers in the original Star Trek episode with the salt vampire. They tried all kinds of weird shakers then went with the ordinary one so the viewers would instantly recognize it. Chris could have drawn some weird alien looking stove but we wouldn’t recognize it as such without one of the characters *telling us* “This is a stove.” Instead we see the stove and wonder “What are they doing at Home Depot?” because we can recognize it is a stove before we read pilot telling us she travels with “this stove”. PeterK December 10, 2018 at 3:15 pm 7 months ago And yet… she like books? RedPine December 10, 2018 at 5:35 pm 7 months ago Okaaayyy…. now I feel like a dumb jerk for thinking that mouth looked really stupid. Meran December 27, 2018 at 6:06 am 7 months ago I thought so too! But now we see the real purpose. I’ve wondered for a long time about that design ???? Is she descended from dragons?? ???????? If so, does she have rudimentary wings or stubs or …. jk TB December 10, 2018 at 6:28 pm 7 months ago They have to put her in a special shielded room when she gets a cold and starts sneezing. Peter Rogan December 10, 2018 at 9:29 pm 7 months ago That’s…. some parlor trick. Could be amusing at the right parties. Now I dread the time when Pilot will have to slag someone, likely as not to save the Galaxy as keep her species’s secret. Because ow. Jeff K! December 11, 2018 at 12:49 am 7 months ago Why, Mr. Chekhov, thank you so much for the beautiful gun! It will look so lovely hanging over my mantlepiece! Strain Of Thought December 11, 2018 at 11:13 am 7 months ago So what is actually happening in the image? Is the stove being superheated to the point that it instantly liquefies? Or is it some kind of other, stranger, liquefying reaction? Is it being disintegrated in the same way blasters set to kill disintegrate people? The amount of mess on the floor seems too small to account for the whole stove being melted, and if the glow from Pilot is actually a fire hot enough to melt the stove that completely, I feel like Devyat would have been horribly burned just by proximity and being splattered with molten metal. reader December 11, 2018 at 6:22 pm 7 months ago Wait, so pilot travels with this stove just to superheat it? I don’t get it. Also wouldn’t some books make him Angry? Dune Prequels come to mind. Christopher Baldwin December 11, 2018 at 6:27 pm 7 months ago “SHE” rarely if ever has chosen to melt it. In this case she must have felt it important enough to make her point. 🙂 Leave a Reply Cancel reply Your email address will not be published.
