Mic July 13, 2022 at 1:09 am 4 weeks ago I’m having “Hostess Fruit Pies!” flashbacks from the old 80s Archie comics. Efogoto July 13, 2022 at 1:51 am 4 weeks ago It’s panel 5 that has me wondering if the Stribs gave the Graughas a poodle shave. Coyoty July 13, 2022 at 3:52 am 4 weeks ago Just as well. If coyotes keep feeding people, they can be associated with food, and people will lose their fear of them. Sean K. July 13, 2022 at 6:51 am 4 weeks ago Even the Alkartika is taken aback. Drew July 13, 2022 at 10:57 am 4 weeks ago Has Ruddock adjusted his blaster, or was the Graughas just much sturdier than the Stribs? Because they didn’t just “fall unconscious”. Christopher Baldwin July 13, 2022 at 10:59 am 4 weeks ago @Drew, it had been recalibrated: https://www.baldwinpage.com/spacetrawler/2022/01/12/011222-desert-memories/ TB July 13, 2022 at 2:22 pm 4 weeks ago In the older Star Trek series, a stun phaser was a specific “blue nimbus” effect. Later on, in shows like Deep Space Nine, the “kill” shot looks about the same as a “stun” shot, and you have to wait for someone on screen to declare “he’s dead,” or remember (as in this case) a specific scene where phasers were set to “stun.” Of course, in Star Trek, if someone is supposed to be “really most sincerely dead,” they disintegrate into nothing at all. This is completely arbitrary, and is mostly in service to dramatic effect or the need for a corpse to mourn or cheer over. Wonder how long it will take for Aitana to put two and two together and then request a perfectly innocent supply of pepper from the food dispenser. mneme July 13, 2022 at 3:07 pm 4 weeks ago I kinda like how Rudrock is the only one of them that is properly armed (because hers is built in) and she definately can’t activate it intentionally. Then again..still allergic to Stribs, so… Just_IDD July 14, 2022 at 8:43 am 4 weeks ago No longer alergic to stribs. One of the strib med bots fixed that after he killed most of the ships complement mneme July 13, 2022 at 3:12 pm 4 weeks ago Oh, right, on her collar, (not built in) and her strib allergy was cured. Pepper it is, then, maybe. Julia July 13, 2022 at 8:34 pm 4 weeks ago Wait….she? For some reason I thought Ruddock was a he. Not that it matters to us, but it could be important to the story. But which is it and how do we know? Christopher Baldwin July 13, 2022 at 8:58 pm 4 weeks ago @Julia (& @Mneme), Ruddock is a he! 🙂 Just_IDD July 14, 2022 at 8:48 am 4 weeks ago @CB I was packing up my apartment to move recently and came across a glass that I think was from Kickstarter that said “I remember when Space Trawler was on the internet”. A lot more people fall into that category now. MrScott July 15, 2022 at 4:40 pm 4 weeks ago “Breaking bread” ever sound destructive? “That’s some nice bread youse got there. Be a shame if anything was to happen to it.” Typo, 1st panel (“unconscious”). Leave a Reply Cancel reply Your email address will not be published.
