A conundrum:
So, I was torn. On the one hand, the obvious choice here would be for Megaweapon's tampering to put the whole ship in danger. After all, we need SOME kind of action after all this talking and more talking, and imminent peril is probably the most effective means of generating tension ever. But on the other hand, Avatar's point is valid. Knowing what we know of Cap'n Crosby, he WOULDN'T allow dangerous mad science onto his ship unless he could be sure it'd be safe under any circumstances. Yes, it drained any and all tension from the situation, but since when do Nitpickers care about that?

But here's the thing: I think the page ended up working by accident, and I don't mean in the "haha, you thought this was going to be dramatic!" sense. Check out how disappointed Trigger ended up looking, that cracks me up! I think he secretly enjoyed finally getting to be a real World Saver during the Mad Scientist Convention, so of course he'd be a little let down that doesn't get to save the day again. I dunno, maybe it's just me, but I really love that.

(I also love the pointless lettering in this page. In theory, it's the sound effects, but there's no way to read it while it's in the background like that. It's just there to look cool. I make no excuses, but also no apologies)

And speaking of Trigger, plus Layla, NEW VOTING INCENTIVE!

... Well, if it does no harm, can we watch the explosion?

Knowing The Cap'n, he'd probably make Avatar and Trigger work off the repair expenses themselves (well, Trigger at lest. Avatar might get a pass) That's gotta be a lot of dish washing.

Calufrax? As in the second segment in the Key to Time?

You know, I do wonder if it returned to being a planet once The Doctor spread the key segments back through time and space again. I assume so, since Princess Astra or whatever her name was came back.
(Calufrax is also known for being cold, wet, icy, and having the required materials to construct a psychic inhibitor)


And poor Layla. Although it does seem funny :P
(Probably not a good idea to inform Layla that we think that though)

WELL DONE! I was wondering if anyone would catch the Doctor Who reference!
