On May 1st, Rich posted on Twitter that he is trying to finish the O-Chul story obligation for the Kickstarter campaign before he does another strip for the main story line. I gave to the Kickstarter and I haven't seen where he's published the O-Chul story yet, so it will probably be a week or more until we see another regular strip.

FYI, Rich just sent an email to his Kickstarter supporters. He completed and published his 95 page O'Chul story. He intends to focus on the regular strip for much of the summer.

Just when I think the mechanic can't do any thing worse, she does...

In the second panel, what is it that Andi could've sworn she saw?

In a previous comic, she chose this path to take at a fork, because she thought she could see plains between the mountains, so she thought it was a way out.

Ah, I found it. Thanks.

All I know is never trust a mechanic to give you geographical advice in a place she's never visited.

And that story is just awesome. I hope non-backers will be able to buy it soon :-)

I really like Elan's only two lines in this page. They go together nicely.

I'm fully expecting the mechanic to lose it when she realizes what a mess of things she has done. Or worse blame it on the captain. Not to mention worst person to put in charge of any situation imo. "Maybe if I tamper with the engines with a untried theory that might work..yeah"

Please. This is exactly what happens when you put Scotty in command of the Enterprise.

Thejeff,

Hey now! I think Scotty is a pretty good engineer but a more than decent command officer! But yes, she clearly would probably do more harm than good being the captain.

I can just see Scotty in command racing down to the engine room to bootstrap something

Thejeff,

Okay that's fair but I still think he could run the ship if the rest of the senior staff is out of commission.

To be fair, Scotty never punched Kirk in the back of the head and declared that he was in command now.

Scotty did actually run the ship fairly often, when Kirk and Spock were away from the ship. Usually, it didn't matter who they left in charge, as all the excitement was down on the planet. But occasionally, Scotty actually had to make important decisions, and he always did fine.


1 person marked this as a favorite.

Yeah, sorry. Really. I wasn't trying to bash Scotty.

Just riffing on the trying to save the day by jury rigging the engine bit.

Last time I checked Scotty never knocked out Kirk over a personal disagreement. Or was oblivious to the what was happening around her. The mechanic is acting like she is still in control of the situation. Clearly the character is not. I'm wondering what the hell the rest of the crew is doing. It's obvious Andi is in denial yet the follow her. It's not even so much about the character jury rigging the engines. So much that she has no clue (or at least to me) what she is doing. As well Andi does not seem to do well with a changing situation imo.

Here is a funny clip from the original Star Trek.

Declaring a Mutiny.

Yeah, I'm following you. I still loved his appearance in Next Gen when he started giving orders about how to juryrig stuff in the middle of a crisis and Geordi told him that it wouldn't work according to the manuals...He replied that he WROTE that manual and was pretty sure that would work.

He was all about the "I've given it all she's got.... Ok, what if I did this, Oh there's some more!!!"


1 person marked this as a favorite.

I get that's what you're going for Jeff...but I don't think this applies to Scotty or the engineer. Because CLEARLY she didn't have to go through Starfleet Academy to do her training.

Read The Kobayashi Maru by Julia Ecklar.

It describes in flashback form Kirk's, Sulu's, Chekov's, and Scotty's attempts at the No-Win Scenario back in their Academy days, and while the simulator had no Engine Room for him to go to mid-battle, that's otherwise exactly what Mr. Scott did when the simulated Klingons attacked.

I was actually thinking of that. :)

The mechanic just jumped at the opportunity to get back to something familiar (tinker with the ship) and she is just ignoring all the rest. Catastrophe should shortly follow, likely because they will stop since she did not tell them not to

I witnessed some incompetent would-be leaders / managers act exactly this way, and bully others into not questioning their bad decisions


2 people marked this as a favorite.

Raven,

It's a tactic many poor leaders use to justify poor planning and decision making. Not just managers.

Also I saw the Kobayashi Maru on the BBC in VR. It was cool. :)

Agreed and seconded. It's not helped that the mechanic is both in denial and trying to do the adult version of "something bad is happening I need to hide under the covers". Hoping that the situation will improve by hiding and because being the captain is no fun anymore acting like everything is good.

All I know is I can't wait for a competent captain to take over this ship.

It lasted too long. They may not be able to fix this.

Excellent speech and a clear call to action and self-responsibility in troubled fearful times

Why do I feel like it is aimed at US readers ? ;-)

Not "just" U.S. readers, but yeah.

Regardless WHO it's aimed for, I'm glad that the mutiny is over. Whether or not it will help this situation in time to resolve in OotS favor...less clear.

Yeah well Elan is known for his great insights.

But yes Captain did her job. Thank the Northern Gods!

Roy's sword is gone. Did anyone notice that he dropped it?

Yes.

It's something that happened like...20 pages ago I think?

A random mook's sword. You will notice (e.g., panel 8) that the sword Roy was using was a single-edged cutlass with a basket hilt -- a typical pirate sword. His family heirloom is a straight, double-edged knightly arming sword with a straight (and green-colored) hilt.

Roy picked it up a few strips ago because simply shouting insults at the giant wasn't going to do anyone any good.

Lost it here, handed a substitute here.

How fortunate that when Roy drops his sword to hang on the ship for dear life, it is not the Greenhilt sword ;-)

I have the nagging feeling that we have not yet seen the last of Feminist Frosty

Indeed Rich has recently introduced several Evil NPCs that readers can relate to (the gloomy Worg and his mistress, the feminist giantess, maybe we can include vengeful Sabine in that lot too).

Will they ally with the oots when the time comes to fight against the end of the world ?
