I was wondering when 'Red Edges' would reappear.
Centcomm 21st Aug 2013, 6:56 PM edit delete reply

Red edges?
cattservant 21st Aug 2013, 7:01 PM edit delete reply

Her speech bubbles have had them so far.

[Centuries later too.]
Centcomm 21st Aug 2013, 7:03 PM edit delete reply

Ah yes.. "The Specialist". :)
cattservant 21st Aug 2013, 7:10 PM edit delete reply

"... sounds like a bad spy movie."
Sheela 21st Aug 2013, 8:19 PM edit delete reply

Sometimes the bad ones are the best.
Stormwind13 21st Aug 2013, 8:25 PM edit delete reply

Sometimes you need to be BAD to get where you need to get. :-D
Mudge 21st Aug 2013, 8:10 PM edit delete reply
"The specialist" who swears like a sailor and orders the captain around is a her? This I gotta see.
cattservant 21st Aug 2013, 8:12 PM edit delete reply

I think you have...
Sheela 21st Aug 2013, 8:16 PM edit delete reply

Well, we don't *know* who the specialist is just yet.
Though we may be guessing.
Centcomm 21st Aug 2013, 8:17 PM edit delete reply

yep all guesses so far.. next page or so we find out for sure! am i evil enough to throw a total red herring .. you BETCHA!
Sheela 21st Aug 2013, 8:18 PM edit delete reply

... I like smoked herrings too.
cattservant 21st Aug 2013, 8:28 PM edit delete reply

Well we do know that She had contact with Dr. Kotko at some point after Galina was activated and at least her hearing was engaged.
Stormwind13 21st Aug 2013, 8:33 PM edit delete reply

We do too know who The Specialist is Sheela! :-D
Mudge 21st Aug 2013, 8:24 PM edit delete reply
Not ... Tokyo Rose?!
Stormwind13 21st Aug 2013, 8:36 PM edit delete reply

Now THAT would be twisted and wicked, Mudge... Sounds like something CentComm would do. :-D
Centcomm 21st Aug 2013, 8:17 PM edit delete reply

yep the same :D that was actually directed at sheelas above comment about smoked herrings :D
Stormwind13 21st Aug 2013, 8:21 PM edit delete reply

CentComm is being EVIL again. :-)
Sheela 21st Aug 2013, 8:31 PM edit delete reply

And sneaky too ... very sneaky, people who hadn't read the comments of both comics would probably be quite confused by now.
cattservant 21st Aug 2013, 8:36 PM edit delete reply

Being compulsive does have it's advantages...
mjkj 21st Aug 2013, 8:43 PM edit delete reply

Yayy for update. And Captain Kiku seems to be reasonable again.

I am looking forward to The Specialist :)

It seems it is looking better for Galina now.

*hugs Galina*
Sheela 21st Aug 2013, 8:55 PM edit delete reply

True, it'll be interesting to finally see who the specialist is.

Maybe it's a salmon smoking doggie ?
Stormwind13 21st Aug 2013, 9:03 PM edit delete reply

I think the Specialist might be like Charlie, from Charlie's Angels... Heard but never seen. :-D
Centcomm 22nd Aug 2013, 6:37 PM edit delete reply

yep .. the most horrible part is over.. for now.
cattservant 21st Aug 2013, 8:56 PM edit delete reply

A question for the Management:
Comic 112 panel#3;
"Well, slap my ass and call me Sally!"
Could she be referencing this?
Stormwind13 21st Aug 2013, 9:02 PM edit delete reply

Hmmm... That would be interesting... Maybe Rose will stop by and let us know. :-)
cattservant 21st Aug 2013, 9:04 PM edit delete reply

A watched Rose seldom blossoms...
Centcomm 22nd Aug 2013, 6:36 PM edit delete reply

most likely yes.
Stormwind13 21st Aug 2013, 9:46 PM edit delete reply

Captain Kiku is trying REALLY hard to be nice to Galina. And she is being honest (or sure sounds like it to me), so WHAT is she leaving out? I mean, I get suspicious when people like the Captain start getting too nice. :-D
Centcomm 22nd Aug 2013, 6:36 PM edit delete reply

your a smart man.. :D
highlander55 21st Aug 2013, 10:26 PM edit delete reply

I don't think Tokyo Rose was around then, too early in the present ability with AI for her I would imagine.
My off hand guess would be the flesh and blood Rose who could take Galina's unique build and let Rose mesh herself into the Net years later. We will just have to let this play out at Centcomm's whim to see if I am close or OUT IN SPAACCE!! LOL
cattservant 21st Aug 2013, 10:46 PM edit delete reply

Stormwind13 21st Aug 2013, 11:06 PM edit delete reply

The deafening sound you don't hear, is the vacuum outside of your view-port highlander! :-D
highlander55 21st Aug 2013, 11:11 PM edit delete reply

Huh? Duh! never mind I get it now.

Just an opinion Storm :P
Stormwind13 21st Aug 2013, 11:23 PM edit delete reply

LOL highlander. I couldn't resist... Or I could have, but where would the fun in THAT be? :-D

It would be interesting if you were right or close to right; however, I don't know if it is likely. Doesn't feel like it to me, but I guess we will (eventually) see. :-)
Sheela 22nd Aug 2013, 10:36 AM edit delete reply

Personally, I find Highlanders idea interesting.

Heck, I've had a go at trying to make up a Tokyo Rose origin story myself once. It's buried somewhere in the comment section of the Datachaser archives. :D

Edit :
I went and found out where it was buried at, so people who wasn't around that day can see what we're talking about.
'Twas nothing special .. just me ... smokin' my salmons.
Stormwind13 22nd Aug 2013, 6:18 PM edit delete reply

Yes, I remember it Sheela. I couldn't QUOTE it, but I remember it. It was interesting and entertaining, though HIGHLY unlikely. :-)
Centcomm 22nd Aug 2013, 6:36 PM edit delete reply

I remember that. it was cool. totally wrong .. but cool :D
Sheela 22nd Aug 2013, 8:04 PM edit delete reply

Aww ... but I thought it woulda been neat if it was right too.
I guess I'll just have to settle for bottom lefty. >_<
Centcomm 22nd Aug 2013, 8:06 PM edit delete reply

dont worry Sheela we love you :D its the participation thats inportant. not nessacarly being right :D
Sheela 22nd Aug 2013, 8:07 PM edit delete reply

yay. :)
cattservant 23rd Aug 2013, 7:52 PM edit delete reply

Somebody's got to help put the 'fuscat' in obfuscation!
Sheela 24th Aug 2013, 9:24 AM edit delete reply

Allright, if I put in "fus" you can put in "cat".
cattservant 24th Aug 2013, 9:32 AM edit delete reply

Well, I am better at inserting Cats...
Stormwind13 25th Aug 2013, 9:25 AM edit delete reply

Inserting cats into what?... You know what, I DON'T want to know the answer to that question! :-D
cattservant 25th Aug 2013, 11:04 AM edit delete reply

Don B. 25th Aug 2013, 1:40 PM edit delete reply
Sheela, don't you need six arms to have a bottom lefty?
Sheela 25th Aug 2013, 4:22 PM edit delete reply

Well ... yes.
Or I need to borrow a few from someone else. :)
jamie59 21st Aug 2013, 11:11 PM edit delete reply

Gali at least she's trying to treat you as human. She did call you Miss Kotko.
Stormwind13 22nd Aug 2013, 12:09 AM edit delete reply

Yeah Jamie. The Captain has always tried to treat her as human, but she also has her orders ('She will be fixed, and you will keep her safer than that stick you carry up your ass, or I will personally yank out said stick out and beat you about the head with it until you don't know whether to shit or go blind. Cough if I'm clear.') so it does limit the Captain's options a little. :-)
cattservant 22nd Aug 2013, 9:01 AM edit delete reply

I'm still not sure if that's a threat or foreplay...
Stormwind13 22nd Aug 2013, 6:24 PM edit delete reply

::Blinks:: You are a strange one, Cat... Even for a CAT! :-D
cattservant 22nd Aug 2013, 7:07 PM edit delete reply

No doubt things are different in The Future!
highlander55 23rd Aug 2013, 8:37 PM edit delete reply
Now or in the Future, a cat is a cat. Play with you one second and next second claw and scratch you! They think we're the pet! LOL
Centcomm 22nd Aug 2013, 6:35 PM edit delete reply

yep she IS trying to be nice to Gali .. even if Gali is having none of it.
Mayyday 21st Aug 2013, 11:12 PM edit delete reply

I would totally watch a "Specialist" movie.
CyberSkull 22nd Aug 2013, 1:02 AM edit delete reply

I don't think touching the big pain stopping collar is a good idea.
Stormwind13 22nd Aug 2013, 6:22 PM edit delete reply

I don't think Captain Kiku is touching the collar. She is adjusting the pillow with her left hand. While her right hand seems to be just in front of Galina's face. Which would be a few inches from the collar.

From the angle and the way it looks at first glance though, I can see how you would get the impression that the Captain was fiddling with the collar. :-)
Centcomm 22nd Aug 2013, 6:35 PM edit delete reply

actually .. shes holding the collar in place while she adjusts the pillow. making sure she doesnt knock it loose. its more or less just sitting there., Jet hasnt had time to add anything to it.
Sheela 22nd Aug 2013, 8:06 PM edit delete reply

Well, what she *has* done, is position herself perfectly for Galina to take her guns and blast her away.

Good thing for the goog Captain that Galina doesn't have a thing for guns. quite the opposite, actually.
Centcomm 22nd Aug 2013, 8:14 PM edit delete reply

ill just say this.. id fail
Sheela 22nd Aug 2013, 8:29 PM edit delete reply

True enough, smart guns make it a lot safer for her.
Centcomm 22nd Aug 2013, 8:33 PM edit delete reply

thats the reason Kiku seems so relaxed about her pistols. :D
cattservant 23rd Aug 2013, 7:57 PM edit delete reply

Do they have anti-blunt trauma capabilities?
Centcomm 25th Aug 2013, 11:19 AM edit delete reply

no ,.. although the anti- tamper will proably leave the thief wishing he didnt have a hand. >_<
Stormwind13 23rd Aug 2013, 8:07 PM edit delete reply

Well, though the Captain doesn't know it, Galina has PROBLEMS with guns (as shown here). :-)
dpallee 24th Aug 2013, 2:01 AM edit delete reply

I really really want a jammy shirt like that.
Stormwind13 24th Aug 2013, 4:07 PM edit delete reply

I think you might have you special order that, though this one comes closer than most.

If you got them to repeat the pattern on the shirt of your choice, it would be pretty close. :-) Not sure though how much that would cost.
Centcomm 24th Aug 2013, 4:13 PM edit delete reply

LOL the froggy shirt has fans- its actually a "scrub" shirt that are used in hospitals :P not sure if the pattern is actually real.
Stormwind13 24th Aug 2013, 4:24 PM edit delete reply

It's REAL now. :-D You might have dreamed it up, but all it takes is putting it on a shirt for it to be REALIZED. :-D
Centcomm 24th Aug 2013, 4:25 PM edit delete reply

LOL - too true
LooeyQ 30th Aug 2013, 9:01 AM edit delete reply

Just because Galina is a robot doesnt mean they dont have to put sheets on her bed. Thats what ould piss me off the most if I were Galina! I love a good set of bed sheets!
Centcomm 30th Aug 2013, 1:31 PM edit delete reply

you would make her cry if you called her that. - however the bed is covered with a disposable "sensor sheet" designed to keep tabs on her vitals and other biomettrics. and it has a soft texture. similar to memory foam.
Caley Tibbittz Collopy 20th Jan 2014, 8:59 PM edit delete reply

Love the dialogue on this page and OMG JUST NOTICED TINY FROGGIES!!! I love frogs. Yay.
GeekPrime 10th Aug 2014, 10:44 PM edit delete reply

"Miss Kotko"
I think the captain's Fucking People Skills have improved! Go Cent!

BTW I'm back!!
Centcomm 10th Aug 2014, 10:47 PM edit delete reply

YAY glad your back ! hugs! and yes they have :D
