It’s hard to hit a moving target in a crowded forest. russell styles February 13, 2020 at 2:07 am 5 months ago Not with that gun. It seems to have active targeting software. It hit both bouncers at the same time, and is said to be the most accurate gun in the galaxy. Efogoto February 14, 2020 at 3:58 am 5 months ago There’s two ZAPs when she shot the bouncers, which to me sounds like two shots, but just so close together that only one frame could hold them. Night-Gaunt49 February 13, 2020 at 12:35 am 5 months ago So those fellows will fly after all. Liars they are too. All those secret exceptions they never mention. And boy howdy, Emily hasn’t begun to cause pain yet. Coyoty February 13, 2020 at 2:20 am 5 months ago She did explode a rocket pack over his butt. That must have hurt. Efogoto February 13, 2020 at 3:47 am 5 months ago I find she’s very direct. A real straight shooter. Pete Rogan February 13, 2020 at 6:59 pm 5 months ago Not a stun setting, I see. Kregger can count himself lucky that his jetpack was what Emily was shootin’ at. Now comes the fun interrogation which Emily, however much she despises it, is good at. Now that she knows the Puppy-people have been working with outsiders, making this an intraGalactic crime syndicate, she’s got motivation to get some good answers out of Kregger. Then she can also shake him down for how to get back to his place without drawing Durn fire. Going into the treetops is a good way to spoil their aim but it’s a lousy place to make time going somewhere else. Presuming, of course, that Emily can get a sightline in those trees, which I somehow doubt quite a bit. And not to sound like a broken record, where ARE those murderous deceiving kawaii-cursed aliens? And their helmets, too. And are they paid for yet or not? Emily may have an ace up her sleeve here regardless. Never mind the Durn gunners. Coyoty February 16, 2020 at 12:33 am 5 months ago It may just be a misdemeanor and not a capital offense. Emily and Kregger were caught on traffic cameras and will be getting fines in the mail. Muzhik February 14, 2020 at 5:15 pm 5 months ago Then she can also shake him down for how to get back to his place without drawing Durn fire. Well, in the strip “Hover Taxi” (https://www.baldwinpage.com/spacetrawler/2020/01/23/012320-hover-taxi/), she notes that there’s a 2-foot allowance for “ground” vehicles. So she gives him a choice: going face up or face down. Then she stands on him and rides him as the rocket pack (that gets fixed somehow) carries them both about 2-feet off the ground. Pete Rogan February 15, 2020 at 7:47 pm 5 months ago Among the other things that won’t work, Kregger himself appears to be about three feet wide. Just scudding along the ground, losing his belt buckle, might draw some Durn attention. And unless there’s a way to remotely control the jetpack, Emily would have to let Kregger pilot, which is a nice invitation to fly under storefront awnings and stout branches to dislodge Emily forthwith. Which would also gather some Durn notice. I don’t think Emily can ride Kregger to safety. And there’s not a Durn thing she can do about it. Muzhik February 16, 2020 at 10:42 am 5 months ago OOO! OOO! I KNOW! EMILY straps Kregger to her back, and SHE goes scudding along the ground. If the Durn have a problem with it, HE can work as ablative shielding to protect her. The sooner they can reach (relative) safety, the greater the chance that he’ll arrive .. un-ablated(?)
