No joke, I googled "worst Star Trek technobabble" and filled in the blanks in this comic's script with the results.

So... I'm annoyed a bit by the way this page looks. As originally conceived, this "gap" between the normal sections of the station was going to be a lot bigger. Well, taller and deeper, anyway. It was going to be a narrow ledge along the middle of a sort of metal canyon (if you're into the Star Wars expanded universe, then think the sort of thing you'd see in Nar Shaddaa) Buuuuuuut, if the past 600+ pages demonstrate anything, it's that I'm better at drawing characters than exotic locations, so I just couldn't get the effect right. As a result, we get just another hall that's slightly more cluttered with glowy things than most. It serves the purpose of the story, and that's what really matters, but I still with I could have pulled off the original idea.

Also, is it clear that Avatar's in the Glowing Tube of Fatal Glowing Stuff because she knows Trigger wouldn't appreciate her spying on his alone time with Skye? (Skye probably wouldn't want anyone watching her work either, but it's not like Avatar doesn't already know what she does) It seemed obvious enough to me when I drew it, but just now I'm struck with the fear that others might not get it right away. Honestly, the only reason she's following THIS way instead of just quietly walking down the hall a few steps behind like a normal person is 'cos she hasn't done anything "indestructible" lately. Gotta keep these plot points fresh or they'll go bad and you can't use 'em any more.

Personally, I like how Avatar's crawling inside the tube of green that would probably kill anyone else with a touch.

The only thing I don't undertand is: How does she expect to get out of there to help Trigger, without causing more of a problem for Trigger?
(We all know that Trigger will get into some crazy trouble no matter what :P)

Unless there's a hatch or something nearby she'd have to break it to get out, and by the time she managed that something terrible could have already happened. Plus, she'll have glowing lime green stuff all over her, and although that wouldn't hurt her, who knows what it'd do to the mortals she'd be trying to help?

Fluorescent lime green stuff either can kill you almost instantly, or tastes really good as a dessert. There is no middle ground.
(Maybe that's why the colour is used for full health bars and poison indicators?)

...Apparently in my absence I have missed discussion :(

Isoneutronic Pulse Waves had better not be something that you can "pick up" (like radioactivity or cathair), otherwise Avatar just caused herself a serious problem.

Not gonna lie, this "Avatar stalking Trigger on his date" stuff is gonna give the shippers a field day.

Not me though. I'm above such petty concerns. Honest.

Also, does Skye know that Avatar knows what she gets up to? And if so, does Avatar know that Skye knows that etc

SS: To be honest, I specifically avoided showing how Avatar got in there to try and distract anyone from thinking about how she'd get out again. ( Serves me right for trying to slip one past you guys!)

DD: Don't worry, Avatar's smart enough not to go crawling around in anything she could possibly trail behind her afterwards.

A: Heh, don't worry, Avatar's above it too. She's eternally prepubescent, remember? Boys are of no concern one way or the other.

Also, yes. Everybody Skye went through the Mad Science Convention with (well, everyone who's a main character) knows what her job is. Staying alive took precedent over keeping secrets in that situation.

Trigger and Sky. THIS IS SO ADORABLE.
