Coyoty June 1, 2022 at 1:09 am 4 months ago When they run out of races to backstab, they backstab each other. Jude June 1, 2022 at 1:48 am 4 months ago I don’t know about back-stabbing. That gun is pointed right at his chest …unless there’s another old codger behind about to stab him in the back. I wouldn’t doubt Christopher will include that at some point. Rikard June 2, 2022 at 10:55 am 4 months ago The gun warps a blade via a miniature worm-hole, to the back of the one it’s pointed at, and then retracts the blade through real-space at % of C? JoseB June 1, 2022 at 2:08 am 4 months ago Asshole-to-asshole combat, and the old ones have more experience at being assholes than the young ones. mojrim June 1, 2022 at 12:47 pm 4 months ago Bingo! VINCENT GOUDREAULT June 1, 2022 at 4:20 am 4 months ago Weren’t the old Stribs younger Stribs at some point, and just as careless and nonchalan? Or is this kind of like the disrespectful “ok boomer” attitude we witness these days on our planet? Scorpinac June 1, 2022 at 6:48 am 4 months ago Do I detect that the younger adult Stribs(the ones who were behind this whole plot) are about to suffer the “Fate Worse Than Death” trope? Flyswatter June 1, 2022 at 7:23 am 4 months ago “Probable Death Ships” – I love it. Now that the seniors have taken over the ship, I have no idea what direction things will go. They’re still Stribs; just older. Are they even more ruthless? GasketMan June 1, 2022 at 10:24 am 4 months ago “Age and treachery will always overcome youth and enthusiasm.” mojrim June 1, 2022 at 12:50 pm 4 months ago So, the stribs are americans. Muzhik June 1, 2022 at 7:08 pm 4 months ago And my favorite: Don’t p*ss off old people. The older we get, the less “life in prison” is a deterrent. Or, how about: Careful Boy, I’m This Old For A Reason DanG June 1, 2022 at 8:40 pm 4 months ago Apple, meet tree. Pete Rogan June 1, 2022 at 9:58 pm 4 months ago A little reminder that ‘seniority with a gun’ is more persuasive than ‘seniority.’ That said, I kind of wonder what their next move is going to be. Conciliatory? Combative? Cooperative? If so, with who? rws June 1, 2022 at 11:24 pm 4 months ago This Strib ship was behind a shield. How did the seniors get on board? Thought they’d be stranded on a decrepit old freighter outside of the shield. Christopher Baldwin June 1, 2022 at 11:32 pm 4 months ago @rws, I had to go back and double-check, but the shields were disabled by the purple-alien-in-the-sky: https://www.baldwinpage.com/spacetrawler/2022/03/23/032322-otherworldly-meddling/ Except for the shields around planet Gentlekindness: https://www.baldwinpage.com/spacetrawler/2022/04/08/040822-engaging-shields/ And also, in today’s strip, the leader of the Stribs says to the older stribs that “we are letting you on our ships.” rws June 2, 2022 at 12:29 am 4 months ago Right. Should have reread it. They are fast, should take hours. Ah well, rule of funny rules all. President Elect Toxic Deplorable B Woodman June 2, 2022 at 7:52 pm 4 months ago “Probable death” ships? Super deadly? Ok, YOU fly it, young whippersnapper. Leave a Reply to JoseB Cancel reply Your email address will not be published.
