Spacetrawler, audio version For the blind or visually impaired, November 12, 2020.
There’s nothing to clarify it, and not enough room or reason to justify clarifying it, but I kept it in anyway, and so I’ll tell you — she is snapping in the first panel to command the captain’s seat screen to lower, which it does.
Yes a bit embarrassing when your enemy has some admirable characteristics.
The American Army ran into that after D-Day. All this time they had been preparing to fight the Hun and save the French. Then they started advancing into the countryside and found how many of the French were still using outhouses while the Germans had proper indoor plumbing.
The GOB fuels cars from pumps?
Universal translator doing the heavy lifting?
The fact that these mysterious dog-aliens have technology that seems to eclipse that of any other known species, even the mihrrgoots and eebs, is a bit…concerning.
Hm. There are more advanced civilisation in the other universe. Sure, the Draak-Sim is closed (though they may have figured out a way to open it), but at least a few aliens got through before that. The puppies could be extra-universal visitors.
When you consider that Kangaroos and Coyotes, which we consider to be sub-sapient fit right in, I suspect that without Eeb technology, most of the intelligent species would be non sapient as well.
Wait… The one named Science is addicted to jalapeno cheesy puffs… The void has a similar structure… The void is a giant jalapeno cheesy puff ball!
you have all the win today, sir.
Alternate title for this strip: Coinkidink. Also, I appreciate the “snap” explanation Scott.
Have we seen that screen before?
There used to be a white ring (panels 1, 6, and 12) on the bridge, but we haven’t seen it since the upgrade to the new drive and the renaming to the GOB Spacetrawler.
Sixth panel demonstrates a Class Seven Stink Eye.
I’m pretty sure that scale only goes up to Class Five…
…I’m also pretty sure that your assessment is correct.
Extrudable vid screens?
I grok the ‘snap’ reference. I have a story where an entire city is found dead and stained because a large ammonia tank was deliberately ruptured. And there were forty more of them, full but intact. The ammonia was essential to the background of the story but nowhere did I indicate why it was made and stored, or how it was used. It just wasn’t essential to the story I was telling, and I had no opportunity to clue in the readers as to what was going on. It would just have been a distraction. I do admit, though, that the mystery of what had happened was presented as an unanswered question before the urgency of events moved everybody on, and no one ever got any answers. C’est la guerre.
The fact that the Puppy-people refuel from a captive star AND mine its repellium shell indicate there’s more to them and their needs than have been identified. For some reason I don’t think either of these are going to remain unexplained.
You.. WRITE BOOKS???!? Please. Direct me to where I might find these precious pearls!
I think I’ve said before that I will not use this site to promote anything of my own. But I’m on Google. ‘Nuff said.
And telling someone who explicitly asked is not advertisement. Just sayin’ 🙂
Umm… antri-grav astro cars fueling up at dynatricity mega-pumps.
