Well THAT was a brutal way of getting his help. I mean, he has to be feeling like he was run over by a car, emotionally. :-p Someone he cares for is hurt and then he finds out she isn't what he thought she was.

And whomever is on the other end of that comm line is NOT playing games from the sound of things. :-D Message sent and received.

At least it sounds like Jet still WANTS to help her. Now if he can get his emotions sorted out he might actually be a major help to Galina.
Centcomm 17th Jul 2013, 12:10 AM edit delete reply

:D I totally agree.. Jet is a good guy actually .. hes just having problems processing this ..

@Stormwind13:
She isn't what she thinks she is either...
Stormwind13 17th Jul 2013, 5:42 PM edit delete reply

Well, she knows what she is, mostly Cat. And personal perception DOES define one's SELF!

So her perception might not jive with anyone else's, but that's okay. Most people's perception of themselves doesn't jive with everyone else's. :-) Hers is just a bit MORE out of line than most people's.
cattservant 17th Jul 2013, 5:47 PM edit delete reply

I'm kind of implying that Galina hasn't had enough time to get more than a hint of how large her potential and capabilities are going to be.
Stormwind13 17th Jul 2013, 8:03 PM edit delete reply

Who EVER figures out all their potential, Cat? Most people wander around lost for a LONG time before realizing even a fraction of their potential.

Fortunately for us, the artist/storyteller has figured out that can be VERY entertaining. :-D Thank you, again for putting out the wonderful comic. :-)
Sheela 18th Jul 2013, 12:43 PM edit delete reply

Considering that she's a mechanical lifeform, she should *know* her potential .. heck, it should be written in her user manual.

Offcourse, she's such an odd type, she don't have a manual, which is strange, to say the least.
Centcomm 18th Jul 2013, 12:46 PM edit delete reply

bows.. thats why I picked her for a subject :D its a 'coming of age story with a massive "twist"
Sheela 18th Jul 2013, 1:17 PM edit delete reply

Offcourse, a "coming of age" situation for a mechanical life form is a completely absurd situation .... in their eyes.
Stormwind13 18th Jul 2013, 6:03 PM edit delete reply

But makes for an interesting comic, Sheela! :-D
cattservant 17th Jul 2013, 4:44 AM edit delete reply

Actually a smart and efficient way to get him to swallow a rather large and crunchy lump with out chewing on it too much.

[Good thing he's young and 'boney' though!]

(I suspect DR. 'Colorful Vocabulary' is going to be on the next flight up!)
Centcomm 17th Jul 2013, 8:29 AM edit delete reply

no but you will find out more about the person on the comm :D and Kiku doesnt like pussy-footing around :D
cattservant 17th Jul 2013, 5:53 PM edit delete reply

I noted that Galina reacted strongly when she first heard that voice. Must have been some sort of relation with Dr Kotko.
Centcomm 17th Jul 2013, 5:59 PM edit delete reply

the connection will be revealed soon I promise :D
cattservant 17th Jul 2013, 6:11 PM edit delete reply

I also wonder where the Nadia Base's Auto-Doc got it's persona-matrix from?
scassett 17th Jul 2013, 6:29 PM edit delete reply

Comm dude has me LOL!! Definitely want to know more!!
Centcomm 17th Jul 2013, 6:45 PM edit delete reply

hehe - glad I can please you :D
mjkj 17th Jul 2013, 4:47 AM edit delete reply

Awww...

Poor Gali *hugs and comforts her*

That was not nice of kiku to rattle her out like this to her boyfriend.

I just hope Cloe (Dr. Cooper) and Hyun-Jung get informed soon - I think Cloe might be able to help Galina also.

@mjkj:
I think a lot of people's careers are going to take an abrupt turn.

[Smell that in the air? It's History!]
Centcomm 17th Jul 2013, 8:31 AM edit delete reply

Dr cooper really cant do much , shes a general practitioner. and while she can understand - this is a heart - this is a eye .. ect ect - the problem is Galina's spine. that means a mix of real nurons and fiber optics. its over her head honestly.
mjkj 17th Jul 2013, 11:54 AM edit delete reply

Ah, ok, but maybe she can help the others with the neurons while they take care of the fiber optics...
mjkj 17th Jul 2013, 5:20 AM edit delete reply

Oh, wow, I like the new voting picture. It is really great - thank you, Cent :)

Poor Galina though she looks quite ... fragmented in there *hugs her*
Centcomm 17th Jul 2013, 8:13 AM edit delete reply

your welcome - its a symbolic pic :D
shes feeling very out of sorts at the moment.
mjkj 17th Jul 2013, 11:55 AM edit delete reply

Yeah, I can feel with her - she must feel even more fragmented than pictured here...

I hope Jet can help her hold together.
Stormwind13 17th Jul 2013, 8:00 PM edit delete reply

The picture was very well done. I kind of liked it, but it made me think of Pinocchio, at his lowest point. Poor Galina.
cattservant 17th Jul 2013, 8:19 PM edit delete reply

Wow! You're right!
Hornet 17th Jul 2013, 10:48 AM edit delete reply
Well at least it sounds like the guy on the line isn't interested in decompiling Galina
Don B. 17th Jul 2013, 6:50 PM edit delete reply
I think it's the base commander. He knows all about Galina and is complicit in her secret. That would explain the anger I'm hearing about the situation.
Centcomm 17th Jul 2013, 7:15 PM edit delete reply

I might suggest looking back at the way the commander spoke :D

All shall be revealed in due course...
cattservant 17th Jul 2013, 7:23 PM edit delete reply

@Don B.:
Don't forget the 1.48 second delay...
Dragonrider 17th Jul 2013, 7:40 PM edit delete reply

At this point I think Galina may well feel she would rather be dead that allow Jet to work on her. Now for the elephant in the room, she still considers herself to be his girlfriend, and him working on her would require him see her unclothed
in a laboratory setting and allow him to touch her body without her permission. Not that the idea of allowing him to touch her body hasn't come up in her thoughts already. How humanoid is Galina, I can't picture someone recreating his daughter as a android and programming sexual responses and functioning sex organs.
Centcomm 17th Jul 2013, 7:59 PM edit delete reply

Remember Dr Kotko was trying to create a "perfect" copy. with all the failings and strong points of his daughter. that means looking forward too. emotional and physilogical sensation is part of the human experiance. its not that perverse to create every detail, also he is not the only person that worked on her.
Dragonrider 18th Jul 2013, 12:07 PM edit delete reply

Not talking perverse, talking the father in me would want to keep her at the age of innocence forever to maintain my most cherished memories of my foster daughter. I'm sure most males would feel the same, keep their daughters young pure and innocent before discovering boys.
Centcomm 18th Jul 2013, 12:41 PM edit delete reply

obsessive perfection would include as mjuch as he was capable of to give her a "life" besides being a lab rat. and amusingly enouygh sensation - touch, taste, smell ect ect are all part of creating a healthy individual there were other attempts made at this . including full positronic models and fully cloned versions. this Gali is the only one that survived and did not go insane.

example creating a version that had limited input would cut her off totaly from humanity and any possablity of a "intamate" relationship. and make her far far colder and less likely to even care about others. so all options even the " other" options were taken into consideration. Kotko was also very practical. he knew a "limited " version would always be "broken"

smirks you come up with the strangest stuff cat :D
cattservant 17th Jul 2013, 8:36 PM edit delete reply

Well socially significant invisible elephants are a deeply embedded theme in this ever expanding Oeuvre of yours!
Centcomm 17th Jul 2013, 8:38 PM edit delete reply

yes they are .. very deeply ninja elephants :D

Stormwind13 17th Jul 2013, 8:39 PM edit delete reply

Think Cat is a Turing Test? :-D

I think Galina passed HER Turing Test The Kiss. :-D
highlander55 17th Jul 2013, 8:42 PM edit delete reply

She will most likely be under some sort of sedation just like a real human would getting an intrusive operation. Besides, if she asks him later if he stared at her nudity he could always say he lost the boner when concentrating on the operation.
Centcomm 17th Jul 2013, 8:54 PM edit delete reply

Operating theaters tend to kill boners fast. however - he may not be allowed to help due to "conflict of intrest" the medical field frowns on unlisenced people performing bleeding edge surgerys and the favt he likes her might make him more prone to screw up out of nervousness..
highlander55 17th Jul 2013, 9:21 PM edit delete reply

But not being officially recognized as a life form that would be a mute point. If an alien did land and get injured they are not covered under human rules but more like veterinarian as not human.
cattservant 17th Jul 2013, 9:06 PM edit delete reply

Talking about the blurring human/machine border lands, a small dark thought occurs to me. Just how perfect a fix is the current Lunar medical/mechanical state of the art capable of?
Stormwind13 17th Jul 2013, 9:24 PM edit delete reply

Depends on WHERE on Luna you are I think Cat. I mean, she was MADE on the Luna. And the DocBot already fixed her once too. So the technology EXISTS to help her, but whether the people at this base can remains to be seen.
Centcomm 18th Jul 2013, 12:38 PM edit delete reply

vaccum damage is actually minor compaired to what she suffered here.. :(
highlander55 17th Jul 2013, 9:33 PM edit delete reply

I thought she was made on earth and he went to Luna because of the hostilities on earth?
Centcomm 17th Jul 2013, 9:43 PM edit delete reply

yes - I thought I had said this before- Galina was constructed on earth and sent to the moon by the goverment along with the good Doctor due to the increaseing voilence.. :D
Stormwind13 17th Jul 2013, 10:23 PM edit delete reply

Whoops, I guess I didn't remember it right. Sorry! :-)
Sheela 18th Jul 2013, 12:51 PM edit delete reply

Doesn't look like they managed to escape the violence very well.
cattservant 17th Jul 2013, 9:45 PM edit delete reply

I think it was Earth too. And then they were deployed to Luna for intelligence gathering work.
highlander55 17th Jul 2013, 11:17 PM edit delete reply

TWC incentive looks like Galina and her "Angel".
Centcomm 18th Jul 2013, 12:11 AM edit delete reply

good eye...
cattservant 18th Jul 2013, 10:37 AM edit delete reply

@Centcomm:

A thought impinges on my early morning consciousness:
DR. 'Colorful Vocabulary';
a) has a vigorous and vaguely familiar style of speech.
b) has a demonstrated uber-scientific ability.
c) has an acute sense of Galina's importance. (on very short notice too.)
d) has command influence over highly placed and skilled personnel.
e) is implied to be located in the Far East.
f) has a red accented speech bubbles.

Hmmmnnnnn? (!)
Centcomm 18th Jul 2013, 10:42 AM edit delete reply

im sure you have a suspect or two :D
cattservant 18th Jul 2013, 10:51 AM edit delete reply

Someone with 'a lot' of irons in the fire who can not only remember which handles are hot, but their exact temperatures both F and C! And has plenty of time to apply them.
Centcomm 18th Jul 2013, 12:30 PM edit delete reply

hehehe feel free to PM me with your suspicions :D
Sheela 18th Jul 2013, 12:52 PM edit delete reply

That's a new one.
