Ruddock should be Chief of Security. Tesfay can be the guy who tells the medibot what to do. Rikard October 5, 2020 at 3:20 am 2 years ago Thought: piloting in the world of Spacetrawler seems to be highly automated (as spaceship-piloting by rights would have to be in any world focusing on the fiction and not the science). Hence, it probably relies more on instincts and intuition not to mention some experience as much as if not more than technincal knowledge/skill. Call it “Gurf’s law” or something. I.e: let Ruddock drive. Nova October 5, 2020 at 3:38 am 2 years ago That chair was clearly not designed for users with tails. That looks uncomfortable. Nova October 5, 2020 at 3:39 am 2 years ago also, precious sleeping ruddock Garth Hill October 5, 2020 at 7:03 am 2 years ago i’m fully expecting Tea to be served in the next couple pages of the Void of Calama. Ada Kerman October 5, 2020 at 7:59 am 2 years ago It took me a minute to catch up, but I’m with you! Garth Hill October 7, 2020 at 7:15 am 2 years ago excellent. you can bring the scones. Gregg Eshelman October 7, 2020 at 7:21 pm 2 years ago I assume it will be a black tea? Garth Hill October 8, 2020 at 7:11 am 2 years ago it goes without saying Calama Tea is generally as dark as it comes. FlySwatter October 5, 2020 at 7:08 am 2 years ago “I only shot you that one time!” “And you had no problem doing it!” Soweli Nasa October 5, 2020 at 2:14 pm 2 years ago Oh, so close to the word “kalama”. “Noise” in toki pona. “sewi pimeja pi kalama ala.”, “Silent space.” Pete Rogan October 5, 2020 at 7:15 pm 2 years ago Having no more people than positions does simplify the staffing problem, to start. It’s when everybody has to do something with the guns, the engines, the shields that massive information deficits and open incompetence burst forth. And then we find out how well the CAPTAIN can deal with that. Big hint: Most of the time, exit interviews aren’t necessary. Since they can’t be populated. Can’t wait to see what the Calama Void draws out of them all. My money’s on Ruddock coming out best, if not actually on top. totematika October 6, 2020 at 1:14 pm 2 years ago Flying your ship into it will sure void your warranty (pun intended).
