Just glad I was NOT drinking when I read the chutzpah panel. Pretty please though, “you’re” ? “your” — p0indexterous September 8, 2021 at 1:11 am 10 months ago I like YOUR chutzpah. Efogoto September 8, 2021 at 2:39 am 10 months ago Ah. Typo in panel 5. I didn’t take your meaning at first. Flying Squirrel September 8, 2021 at 6:48 am 10 months ago Chutzpah incarnate. Soweli Nasa September 8, 2021 at 5:25 pm 10 months ago I metaphorically click the heart, or thumbs up, or something to indicate approval of this communication. someone September 9, 2021 at 12:16 pm 10 months ago I like that he is chutzpah. Except on Saturdays, when instead he is moxie. Jude September 8, 2021 at 1:18 am 10 months ago Here i thought when Ruddock started with “Hey ship, I’m captain now…” that Choan would laugh and say it was a touch more complicated than that, or that it would alert the evil dogs to someone else being on the bridge. Certainly didn’t expect the results Ruddock got!! Coyoty September 8, 2021 at 1:48 am 10 months ago “Who’s a good captain? You are! You’re such a good captain!” This clinches it. He knows his approxiscan can relay computer data. The translator chip definitely increases intelligence and contextual and conceptual awareness as needed. It probably installs concept add-ons in the brain, like in the Matrix. “I know Kung Fu now!” Tim McCormack September 8, 2021 at 8:09 am 10 months ago Mmm, but Choan tells him that in the previous panel. He just doesn’t know that his approach *shouldn’t* work. Trying the dumb thing is his superpower. 🙂 Keith September 8, 2021 at 8:21 am 10 months ago Heh, that’s what you think. I’ve long known canids were smarter than dumb hairless primates, They also have better conceptual and contextual awareness…and rarely if ever do you catch one out on not knowing your feelings. Just remember, they domesticated us. Then created the lie that the cats did it. Coyoty September 8, 2021 at 1:53 am 10 months ago Another possibility is the ships are talking to each other, and Spacetrawler told the Strib ship that Ruddock is the best captain ever. Zeebob Froomchik III, Esq. September 8, 2021 at 2:22 am 10 months ago Oo, I like this idea! “Coyote Caption Good!” is now a popular meme among spaceship AIs! Zeebob Froomchik III, Esq. September 8, 2021 at 2:23 am 10 months ago Gah. Yay, autocorrect — that should have read “Coyote Captain Good!” Rex Vivat September 8, 2021 at 5:03 am 10 months ago I thought you were intentionally doing the whole animal speak meme thing Nova September 8, 2021 at 3:52 am 10 months ago Oh my god. Knicholas September 8, 2021 at 6:40 am 10 months ago He’s a wild coyote and STILL hits the computer with the puppy dog eyes! I love Ruddock’s body language. Flyswatter September 8, 2021 at 6:44 am 10 months ago Why would Ruddock float in water? Because he’s a good buoy. Sorry… sorry. Keith September 8, 2021 at 8:17 am 10 months ago Like Ruddock, my alluring nature is not for sale. It is however rentable for a modest remuneration for short periods of time. shoop September 8, 2021 at 8:34 am 10 months ago “your chutzpah”, not “you’re”. Also you still have a typo a few pages ago, when the underling is telling the Strib leader that the entire second shift has disappeared. It should have been “the ones” but you added an apostrophe, “the one’s” sdsdv10 September 8, 2021 at 10:38 am 10 months ago Four “you’re” to “your” corrections in the comments, spaced over 8 hours. LOL Also, does this mean another ship is going to have a mice problem? Dan September 8, 2021 at 5:12 pm 10 months ago Eventually, synthetic mice will be the dominant species in the galaxy. Except for coyotes, perhaps. TB September 8, 2021 at 8:02 pm 10 months ago All coyotes have the power to control technology. It’s why there’s still so many of them. TheWreck September 8, 2021 at 8:37 pm 10 months ago Coyote is The Trickster, after all. Meran September 12, 2021 at 4:39 am 10 months ago Best comment! Pete Rogan September 8, 2021 at 8:49 pm 10 months ago Jesus Christ in a jello mold. If Ruddock can command a hostile alien ship by brute chutzpah alone, what CAN’T he command? No! No! I refuse to go down that rabbithole! Who knows what lurks in its far depths, less hungry than lonely and mad about it? I’m going to need more bourbon to get through this episode, I can tell. Where’s the car keys?? Liquor store closes any time! Font Lady September 8, 2021 at 9:01 pm 10 months ago They should know you’re coming and stay open. Keith September 10, 2021 at 8:41 am 10 months ago M’lord Ruddock acknowledges your insight and wisdom. And honestly, why struggle. Join with your coyote overlords and know peace. Muzhik September 8, 2021 at 9:31 pm 10 months ago THIS is why you don’t secure essential systems with passwords like “1234” or “abcd” or even “gandalf”. It’s like these people are soooo arrogant that it never occurs to them that a hostile force might just take over the ship! BTW, on the old TV show “Andromeda”, the safety override password was, “Shut up and do what I tell you!” Loved it! DSL September 9, 2021 at 2:08 am 10 months ago Possibilities: 1. The Strib ship’s AI is being sarcastic. 2. The Strib ship’s AI is just as sick of the Stribs as everyone else. 3. 1. and 2. 4. In an astronomically astounding coincidence, the words “Hey, ship, I’m the captain now. Feed all your information to Choan, through my approxiscan” sound exactly like the Strib word for “password.” Nova September 9, 2021 at 9:03 am 10 months ago I think it just likes the cut of his jib. Or his chutzpah, as it were. Muzhik September 9, 2021 at 6:41 pm 10 months ago Would you say Ruddock has moxie? walterw September 8, 2021 at 9:49 pm 10 months ago it’s becoming clear that following emily and (arguably) dimitri, earth has unleashed its third unstoppable badass upon the wider galaxy 0z79 September 8, 2021 at 11:47 pm 10 months ago What Bikkie, chopped liver? BLOOOD!! Coyoty September 9, 2021 at 3:25 am 10 months ago Bikkie chops liver! DSL September 9, 2021 at 7:11 pm 10 months ago Bikkie not bother to remove liver before chopping it. Doug Relyea September 9, 2021 at 8:43 am 10 months ago Cool, the four Earthling Horsemen of the Galactic Apocalypse, unleashed. (Dmitri, Emily, Bikkie, and Ruddock) Winnie September 9, 2021 at 12:15 pm 10 months ago All of you and your delightful comments have made my work day! Well done, Spacetrawler fans! colin September 9, 2021 at 11:59 pm 10 months ago Meanwhile Noag back on earth discovers KFC Leave a Reply Cancel reply Your email address will not be published.
