For the record, I didn't delete "Some Useless Geek's" posts, he did it himself.

First post on the forum...hope this is going to the right place. Third page of comic has a pilot in her bedroom on a warship. That's as much space as you'd give to an Admiral, not a pilot. A pilot would have enough space for a bed, a closet, and a desk, with just enough space to squeeze between. That's if she's lucky enough to not be in a bunk-bed situation, which is more likely. Also, those books sitting free on a bookshelf are really inappropriate in a warship.

Sorry, that just bugged me. Other than that, love the comic. You've gotten really good at your graphics, and your writing has always been excellent.

I was actually thinking about this just the other day, oddly enough, although I was coming at it mainly from the "how can they fit cabins like that in a ship that size" angle.

Any chance of deck plans, David?

(and I idly wonder if deck plans would would cause Mainman to revise the RSC Blackmore at all...)
Some pithy statement goes here.

Maybe they're officer's quarters, or maybe fighter pilots get preferential treatment on carriers, leaving the grease monkeys and ships crew quartered in tighter facilities while they're not fixing the fighters. I mean, they strap themselves into tin cans with rocket engines on them and race around desperately trying not to get killed while trying to kill other people. They deserve some space to stretch their legs on their off hours, right?

I have just returned from vacation and got whole chapter waiting for me :)
Two comments
- nice to see some stars. Thank you!
- Great cliffhanger. I really like it. That and the fact we won't have to wait half a year to see the continuation (as it is the case with various TV series)

Edit: Regarding the control room: it looks nice but it was actually never seen in "full glory" in the chapter itself. I had an impression they are located in some rather cluttered small room.
