OOOOOOOOOOOooooooh, some dramatic lighting. Clearly, this will end well.

The funny thing is, though, this is probably the closest to "nice" we've seen Megaweapon (when he's not totally faking out his Mom) I mean, he's not exactly polite or anything, but there's a kind of casualness between him and his Dad that we haven't seen elsewhere... let's see how long that last.

But yeah, I got this page done before leaving for Katsucon, but today's Voting Incentive was NOT. Meaning, as I write this, I have no idea what the incentive will be. But I'm sure it'll be awesome, so vote and see it!

Megaweapon is doomed!

I think Dr Hector looks pretty awesome on this page; pose, perspective and shading.

His appearance screams "not happy with you" disappointment.
If that was directed at anything other than a member of his family, I imagine the need to try to avoid disintegration beams, or worse.

I didn't realise Star Fleet uniforms were so tight fitting.
I'm betting she refused to wear one of the original series uniforms...

I think transformers (the first one) had a song that would work for this, go did it go? I get what I... Haha you started singing it. I did to, but hay, that line, this moment.

I have never thought of her as a Red Shirt, given their reputation.

Wait a moment. *Decided to use google to confirm if Red is just the colour of the military is Star Trek, since I don't watch the show.*

...okay, that just made things more convoluted. I'm giving up now.

@Darius Drake
I'm pretty sure she's wearing the uniform of a senior officer (captain, admiral, etc)

The red shirts thing came from the original series, when security personnel wore red (I think they wear yellow now? Which makes things interesting, because yellow used to be the colour of bridge crew or senior officers)

And yeah, security personal are the first to die in Star Trek (unless they are a main character and defended by plot armour, of course)

You do NOT want a Mad Scientist mad at you. Especially if they're your father.

My compliments to the chef fot cooking up that amazing expression of STERN FATHERLY DISAPROVAL.

I actually wrestled with what color uniform to stick Layla in quite a bit. Part of me really didn't want to put her in red, lest the uniform should blend in with her hair. But let's face it, there is NO WAY Layla would settle for anything less than Command.

Seros Senric (Guest), February 18th, 2014, 7:02 pm

Yeah, Layla wouldn't settle for anything less than a command position.
Concerning Red Shirts, I blame TV Tropes for people still associating them with dying easy. It's been 45 years since red shirt deaths!

In Star Trek, it's the original series that the belief that red shirts commonly died originated (and even then, more people wearing gold died, it's just that they tended not to be under Kirk's command, and even more, I think it wasn't until the seventh episode that a red shirt died, being mainly blue science personal before then I think) and the reason they died was the same as in any other piece of fiction: to show that the current threat was dangerous without harming a main character, but rather someone close to the main characters).

Of course, after TOS ended and we got stuff like The Next Generation, they swapped the colours for command and security, making yellow the new common target among the main ship's crew, and doing a lot to keep the most yellow shirts being killed in Star Trek than any other colour.

OK, now after all that, I just felt like ranting about something I only actually know a little about, and here's safer than other places for that purpose.
Feel free to ignore what I said. I'm pretty sure it's fairly accurate, but I could be wrong.
