Of course it's a trap. It'd not make for an exciting comic if journeys were uneventful.

Is that a new image used for the display on the screen in panel 2?

hmm... and I now find myself wondering if every UTC ship is running the same OS on its computers.
Some pithy statement goes here.

I think we've seen it before, but I don't think it's been red, yet. My guess is that it's red as a warning because there's a distress beacon out.

Sometimes you people fixate on the strangest things...

It's new. It took maybe two minutes to throw it together using Photoshop. I wanted something new because we've never encountered a distress signal before, and because the occasional new element gives the impression that I'm actually working here.

It's the strange things that make the comic great. The fact that you pay attention to little details like that (even if only in passing sometimes) means that I can immerse myself all the deeper into the world of the Niobe and her crew; in short, it's an escapist reader's paradise.

I gotta agree, you just know that this is the start of something bad. There's been plenty of foreshadowing in this, and don't think we've seen the last of those Syndicate ships, either. Just because they don't have the jump signature anymore doesn't mean they'll forget that death-mark. I have been wondering though, given the behavior we've already seen from one of their captains, will they respect it when that death-mark expires? And how is all of that going to fit in with the siege of Farhaven? I can't wait to see where this is going.

The Captain has a real dilemma on page 4; whether to follow his heart or listen to his head. If he listens to his head (and the rest of the crew) and is wrong he loses a sister. If he follows his heart and is wrong he could lose his crew, his ship and his own life. Awww, we know he's going with his heart. It makes for a better story.

Alternatively you could just ignore both and listen to your spleen.
