Getting the ship ready for action mean more science, and that means MORE COLORFUL GRADIENTS ALL OVER EVERYTHING! This was a pretty dang hard one to work out, what with the two separate colors going on and everything, but I think the end result turned out pretty well. It probably still needed a few more faint layers of red to REALLY look like multiple light sources in the same room, but it's still better than my previous attempts to combine effects like this.

So, time for a bit of housekeeping: Next Tuesday is Halloween, so there'll be a special holiday page that day instead of page 973. I'd like to be able to go ahead and do an extra page to go up Wednesday, but between trying to finish up those Conventional Wisdom comics AND getting enough of a headstart on November's pages that I'll have time to work on Christmas stuff... yeah, I just don't have time to add an extra page to the weekly workload. Sorry! (Also, I've miraculously managed to plot out November's pages well enough to actually have a decent cliffhanger moment before we cut to Christmas comics, and adding another page to the mix might through all that off)

And speaking of Halloween, here's a new Voting Incentive... that has absolutely nothing to do with it whatsoever.

OK, now I'm totally convinced that Tabitha's "real science" is really just magic described with tech-talk. (As opposed to her dad's work which is actual science disguised as pseudo-magic) Then again, who am I to question a girl who has developed a particle even more powerful than the Minovsky particle - the Misovsky particle! ;)

Just wait 'til the Cap'n sees the Gordian Knot that Trigger has made out of the entire ship's wiring in order to produce that simple three-button control....

Well, let's face it: 90% of Science Fiction winds up just being magic with techy words whether the author specifically meant it to be that way or not :)

True, of course, I just find it more ironic because of Tabitha's Dad thinking his science is magic, when it really is actually ... scientific magic.

Then again, it's been argued that since for most technological devices we use in real life, say a cell phone, there is no longer any one person who has the knowledge about how all of the parts of the device work and/or are made, one can only be made by large groups of people who trust that other people must know how the rest of it works - is there really any difference between that and magic - if we're using something that *nobody anywhere* knows how to make or how it works? Sounds like magic to me!

Oh! Oh! I know what the difference is! Tabitha's stuff actually works as advertised, so people let her call it whatever she wants! :D

I just assumed it was because she was more adorable than her dad. When you're adorable, people let you get away with just about anything.
