Very very few people have ever managed to do that much (visible at least) damage to Emily. DSL March 9, 2020 at 1:34 am 8 months ago Emily’s very present-minded and articulate for a person in as much pain as she has to be in. Meran March 9, 2020 at 1:44 am 8 months ago Survival instincts are very ~strong! I’ve seen such actions IRL. This isn’t very far out of the pale. War Pig March 9, 2020 at 2:49 am 8 months ago True. I have seen men with bullets in them keep on fighting past when you’d think they should have passed out or died. Captain Christmas was still giving orders even when they were trying to get him on the dustoff, and he refused to get on the huey until the enlisted wounded were on. He was last on that huey at Hue. Pretty much adrenaline high. But when your adrenaline crashes, you crash HARD. Hope they have the needle in the vein and the morphine coming when it does crash. Navy Cross and Purple Heart. Heck of a man. Men behave differently after a battle. I got the shakes, but only after the battle was over. Several others did, too. That’s when I found out that tobacco (cigarettes) were a blessing. Never smoked until my first big firefight. They do tend to calm your nerves and give you something to do other than think about what you’d just been through. That’s also why GIs get gallows humor. Laugh, or cry uncontrollably. Coyoty March 10, 2020 at 2:17 am 8 months ago Christmas is still alive, too. Jude March 9, 2020 at 2:07 am 8 months ago Don’t worry, Aitana, medi-bot will restore Emily back to health in almost no time. And Ruddock, Emily’s head fur will also be back to normal very soon too. Coyoty March 9, 2020 at 2:35 am 8 months ago I want what she’s having. (I missed two events Saturday due to back pain. But they were conflicting, so that worked out.) Ray Radlein March 9, 2020 at 3:29 am 8 months ago Yes, I can see where telling the ship to obey them can not possibly ever blow back on Emily in any way Havlock March 9, 2020 at 3:35 am 8 months ago I expect the revenge of Ruddock. KnicholasG March 9, 2020 at 9:54 am 8 months ago To hell with her coiffure! She lost her hat!! Marco March 9, 2020 at 1:24 pm 8 months ago Good point. Hair grows back. Hats do not. russell styles March 9, 2020 at 12:34 pm 8 months ago The lasers seem to have a range of settings. We have seen stun, and explode the target into tiny little bits. Now we have inflict minor burns, and inflict not so minor burns. Steel Raven March 9, 2020 at 11:53 pm 8 months ago Grazing blow, a actual hit would have been as horrible as suggested. Still better shooting than the Stormtroopers Emily is use to fighting. Muzhik March 9, 2020 at 6:22 pm 8 months ago Sooo … Stangor’s NOT going to become the 5th Beatle. Or 6th team member, Whatever. Nova March 9, 2020 at 11:16 pm 8 months ago I don’t rule out Stangor clinging to the landing gear and getting sneakily drawn up into the gear well. Steel Raven March 9, 2020 at 11:54 pm 8 months ago Doesn’t have to. Stangor got the ‘where to’ location for the team so she already knows where they are going. Pete Rogan March 9, 2020 at 7:45 pm 8 months ago I’m having a bad flashback to how Martina looked after a brush with the unclamped but demented Eebs. Never mind the excellent Galactic medical care, War Pig is right about the crash after-action. Some people get more cautious, but from what we know about Emily I think she might go the other way and draw a little faster the next time. Which will kind of blow the whole ‘not-trust-in-guns’ direction she was taking. I find myself secretly grateful that at least she has both eyes. Though the other damage is not as visible. And my confidence in Chiphu just took a dump. He literally did not lift a finger when Emily crashed in. This is enough to put him on my ‘watch’ list. His personal aims are taking precedence over his humanity, and that’s always a bad sign. (Points fingers at own eyes, points at Chiphu) Nova March 9, 2020 at 11:17 pm 8 months ago I’m pretty sure Chiphu is still trippin’ on space morphine, honestly.
