Cliffhanger just got steeper, we know that there is no way that borrowed ship is gonna last more than the next three pages, Kari is gonna have to Get back on board the damaged ship so she can get Ren into an EVA Suit and lifepod so she can get back to sound the alarm for a rescue that ain't gonna be mounted. The mission was off the books so paraphrasing immortal words of the original Mission Impossible narrator, "Should you accept this mission and be Killed or captured Ms. Kari The Alliance will disavow all knowledge of your existence." :(

I still hold with my previous post, pailfuls of Bovine After Product are about to hit the osculating air distribution device. It seems Ren doesn't know that Kari is terrified of the dark of space even more reason for her to have the light sources you show. Even if they really would nor be effective in real world.

I will extend my thoughts on the destruction of the ship by two more pages to the original three, the plot development is not moving as quickly as I thought. That hulk she about to enter looks like one creepy haunted house.

>>>HEY<<< where is everyone?? :?: :?: :?:

I'm here! I like this slow build-up, if you can call a webcomic that updates several times a week "slow".

Answers time! I apologise for my silence. I've been working hard, and I wanted to get some key story points out there before I answered too many questions :)

There are, though not quite on that scale, and not in Cirin or Darani space. Kari's visited a few parks/arboretums, but that's it.

Ehh, kind of. Honestly, while it took a lot of time and effort to build, I was never 100% happy with the Scar, so I'm happy to move on :)

Sorry, but the original Niobe is officially gone.

FWIW, I haven't seen past the first season of Game of Thrones, because I decided that it just wasn't my kind of story.

They're both EVA qualified, it's standard for all armed space forces, but neither are experienced.

I enjoy that too!
I prefer interesting plot and intelligent discussions more than just pew-pew bang-bang over and over...

I just wanted to add: I like the shots from varying angles on the current page (Ch15p18).
It gives the feeling that there is no gravity present on the ship. I presume Kari is using some mag-boots or similar technology?

She learned that the life pods are in some kind of danger?

Yeah, but big enemy ship is most likely what is happening. The question is - how good is the stealth mode?
Maybe they just want to finish/destroy the debris to clear out their tracks/evidence/etc., in which case Kari is in more danger than Ren.
