Re: Official "Discuss the latest page" thread

The Niobids are honestly pretty good at the "sneak up on the target undetected" part of the plan, it's the part where they have to get away cleanly that tends to blow up in their face.

Re: Official "Discuss the latest page" thread

I wonder, when David established that Bob was paranoid about wireless interfaces (in literally the fourth page of the comic), did he plan on it becoming a plot point 14 years later?

I'd believe it - it wouldn't be the first webcomic to make a super-long callback - but I'm curious either way.

Re: Official "Discuss the latest page" thread

Sapphira is the obvious choice for someone with a super-marauder, but I'll point out that Sapphira is augmented, so she could be infected with Wisdom and it's someone else filling her shoes. One of the remaining Mengsks would be really ironic.

Re: Official "Discuss the latest page" thread

Which reminds me, what blew Scar up? A Gerushda-class destroyer, probably. It's not explicitly confirmed - Whisper just says they were hit without warning - but it shows up to attack Kari and co when they're looking for survivors, so the most likely explanation is that it killed the Scar and then h...

Re: Official "Discuss the latest page" thread

Kari's been through this before.
Kari has been through a lot of ambushes, now that I think about it. Somewhere between three and six, depending on how you count. At this point I'd just start calculating emergency jumps any time I'm in the same system as a derelict ship.

Re: Official "Discuss the latest page" thread

The pop-up turrets are cool, but I liked the logic behind Old!Niobe's layout. She had the guns on one side and the living quarters on the other, so she could turn broadside to use both guns while shielding her vital bits.

Re: Official "Discuss the latest page" thread

Larissa, you married someone named "Vaegyr." You're in no position to make fun of peoples' names.

Also, the captain got an art update. Looking good!

Re: Official "Discuss the latest page" thread

Some kinetic weapons could be perfectly safe to use on spaceships - use frangible ammo or a small caliber, something that won't put holes in the hull - but it's also possible that Larissa's father is just a dumbass who bought the biggest gun he could find. Speaking of guns, I can't help but notice t...

Re: Official "Discuss the latest page" thread

Did Niobe get an art update? Her bridge layout is roughly the same, but all the details look different. Or is she supposed to look different because she's been refitted or something?
