Yay! I get to design a new spaceship inside and out! Um. With all my free time. Ha! Why do I do this to myself? (answer: because it will be awesome, Mr Baldwin)

    Looking forward to finding out if this crew is as good as they say. Tesfay has been a magnet for interesting experiences. Well, mainly trouble. Even on Earth. Poor guy. Did someone in his youth curse him with the faux-Chinese blessing/curse ‘May you live in interesting times’? He certainly has!

    You can always use the old trick of holding a contest for a new spaceship design in a particular 3D format. Maybe with books and stuff for prizes, or naming a character after the winner.

    On the other hand, if you’re like a lot of engineers I work with, designing the stuff is half the fun.

    Chris, just as a warning, at some time in the future I’m going to use your setup of Tesfay to start a new sf role-playing adventure. Of course, that will have to wait until I come up with an idea behind the adventure equally awesome. Won’t be this week, no sir.

    Honestly, I’m not going to stop wondering about the symbiote and Tesfay until it comes up in-comic. I’m starting to think the symbiote isn’t a good person at all. Its current host was gone all of, what… a half-hour, and it already called out to another person and is hosted by them?

    Pshh.. whatever. It’s just a big, green snot-pile of trash as far as I’m concerned.

    I personally can’t wait to see three old ladies in military fatigues with sideams on their belts just slipping back into old ways and habits like hands into gloves.

      Tabletop shuffleboard is surprisingly fun, unless you’re so socially dysfunctional that you can’t handle yourself in a bar… or, I guess, if you’re too young to enter one.

  6. Guessin’ purple chick’s gonna bite it halfway through the first mission? Non-speaking role, red shirt, needs to return said shirt to the protagonist in a plot-relevant fashion… my money’s on “phaser 2tha phace” while heroically covering someone’s retreat.
