The stribs are outnumbered. Rikard March 25, 2022 at 2:30 am 11 months ago So is that what Dmitri was doing behind the Draak-Sim? Checking the compatibility of big purple mono-ocular things? KQY61 March 25, 2022 at 7:15 am 11 months ago Yep. I knew they were A**holes in Strip #1. Efogoto March 25, 2022 at 3:59 pm 11 months ago Well, you *were* the first to know about them. How’s the rebuild going? KQY61 March 26, 2022 at 6:33 am 11 months ago All back to normal. But I am still wanting to run them over with a D11. 😛 minando March 26, 2022 at 3:23 am 11 months ago Stripping the Stribs of their power didn’t do anything to change their attitude. No wonder they are so bad at parenting. Pete Rogan March 26, 2022 at 8:36 pm 11 months ago We don’t know that the Stribs are bad at parenting. They simply don’t want to do it. Which should tell you that the Stribs put a higher value on cheating other races out of their technology and skills than bringing a new generation along. Ordinarily this is a self-correcting problem. At some point the last two Stribs capable of breeding would look at each other, say ‘Meh’ and go back to their latest swindle. Maybe convincing other races to be surgically modified into Stribs, with the same attitude problem. But the Stribs apparently don’t mind having children so long as they don’t impose any limit on what the parents are doing, or who they’re doing. This speaks of a bigger problem, the wholesale evasion of responsibility, at the expense of whoever else they can compel into doing the work. What used to be a self-limiting genetic trait thus becomes a danger to every other species they come across. A Galaxy-sized problem. And only our heroes to stop them. Without the benefit of the stolen shields. I don’t suppose anybody’s considered that the shield-penetrating missiles don’t need to be saved for use against shields now? Whatever else happens next, it promises to be messy. Unless…. No. No, I won’t do it again, and I almost did. I’m having a lemonade with bicarb and shall await Monday’s confrontation with bated (if somewhat foamy) breath. Leave a Reply Cancel reply Your email address will not be published.
