Garth Hill August 25, 2021 at 10:54 am 2 years ago it’s the direct opposite of the Star Wars Stormtrooper effect Timothy Eisele August 25, 2021 at 3:53 pm 2 years ago It’s not quite clear, did Ruddick also shoot two Stribs last time, or just one? It kind of looked like there were two talking, one heard something and went to see what was going on, and got shot without the second one realizing what had happened. At any rate, if he keeps this up there won’t be any left by the time the rest of the gang tracks down the Strib ship again. steve gallacci August 25, 2021 at 1:17 am 2 years ago I suspect the weapon has its own targeting system, which means he’d better be careful once he gets back to his crew. Or maybe it has a IFF? grund August 26, 2021 at 12:50 am 2 years ago https://www.baldwinpage.com/spacetrawler/2020/10/14/101420-it-keeps-moving/ He did have some luck on the skeetbot range Coyoty August 25, 2021 at 1:48 am 2 years ago That burn was worse than the laser. C.B.VINCENT GOUDREAULT August 25, 2021 at 4:13 am 2 years ago Hey; what happened to the “SPLUBT!” sound effect? Christopher Baldwin August 25, 2021 at 11:39 am 2 years ago @C.B.Vincent, excellent point. Updated! someone August 25, 2021 at 5:37 am 2 years ago Strib Count: 2-0-0-0-0-0 Also there’s a mouse under Ciara’s chair. C.B.VINCENT GOUDREAULT August 26, 2021 at 2:30 am 2 years ago It would be more amusing to count the Stribs that got “splubted”… Flyswatter August 25, 2021 at 6:54 am 2 years ago That was harsh Ruddick Owen Smith August 25, 2021 at 9:04 am 2 years ago I think Ruddock is allergic to Stribs, hence he sneezes when they’re around. Rikard August 25, 2021 at 9:34 am 2 years ago So a sneeze triggers a lasershot. Maybe different kind of nasal expulsions causes different effects? Blowing his nose switches it to flamer-mode? Gives a whole new meaning to “hose the room”… John August 25, 2021 at 1:11 pm 2 years ago So……. this is what they call laser tag? Meran August 29, 2021 at 8:17 pm 2 years ago Sneezertag? Pete Rogan August 25, 2021 at 7:58 pm 2 years ago If Ruddock wipes out the Strib crew just by sneezing, I’m going to be SO annoyed. But given the Strib proclivity to deal with problems by massive, disproportionate hostility, I imagine at some point they’re going to figure they’ve had enough and just decompress half the ship to be rid of him. As if THAT would work. Indifferent hostility, meet blind luck. I’ll just await the outcome with maybe a refill of limeade. Yeah. Something tart. TammyJess August 26, 2021 at 2:35 am 2 years ago oh, sometimes I’m really slow-witted. Of course Ruddick doesn’t know why they disappeared.. he closes his eyes when he sneezes, just like the rest of us. Duh. :/ Peter Ware August 26, 2021 at 8:43 pm 2 years ago You’re right! Of course he does, and if you look at each time he fired his laser you can see that he closed his eyes. Well spotted! Jude August 26, 2021 at 11:29 pm 2 years ago I’ve tried so hard (and too often) to keep my eyes at least part way open when I sneeze. Nope, never works. :p MercuryGreen August 27, 2021 at 1:44 pm 2 years ago He’s…allergic to them. Leave a Reply Cancel reply Your email address will not be published.
