just a side note - I did ask a actual retired homicide detective about this shot. apparently gun shot wounds are very.. very messy. he said take a gallon of blood and splash it around.. so.. yeah a little blood can cover a large area.. :/

Fun facts from researching..

Okay I really didn't see that one coming. He might as well put that gun to his temple now 'cuz he won't be able to live with this. (unless it's clever use of camera angle) Captain, I hate to tell you told you so but you should have killed him like I said. heheh
Centcomm 9th Oct 2014, 12:10 AM edit delete reply

Wait for it.. and no .. he put the bullet exactly where he wanted. Remember he thinks shes "under control" of the Aliens.. so.. yeah.. more bad is coming.
Sheela 9th Oct 2014, 2:02 PM edit delete reply

Well, in that case, he put it just above her heart then ?
Centcomm 9th Oct 2014, 2:04 PM edit delete reply

Next page you will see more detail .. :D

I take it I surprised you?
Vivocateur 9th Oct 2014, 12:27 AM edit delete reply

Centcomm 9th Oct 2014, 12:33 AM edit delete reply

I think he got her attention..
Vivocateur 9th Oct 2014, 12:35 AM edit delete reply

Just walk it off captain..oh wait you can't because of that fractured ankle…never mind…
Centcomm 9th Oct 2014, 12:51 AM edit delete reply

well yeah.. there is that... >_>
velvetsanity 9th Oct 2014, 12:47 AM edit delete reply

He shot Kiku!!! He must Die!!!
Centcomm 9th Oct 2014, 12:50 AM edit delete reply

Well now remember the Col is not quite in his right mind..
Aurora 9th Oct 2014, 1:31 AM edit delete reply
Agreed. Shall we break his legs together? Or shall we get straight to business with the take out?
Centcomm 9th Oct 2014, 1:48 AM edit delete reply

heh.. another for the Lynch mob eh?
Stormwind13 9th Oct 2014, 6:58 AM edit delete reply

It isn't the Colonel, velvet. It is the EVIL artist! Get CentComm!
velvetsanity 9th Oct 2014, 9:18 PM edit delete reply

I've already got CentComm, right in the Daz content. Where do you think she gets the stuff she uses to show us these horrors? :D
Stormwind13 9th Oct 2014, 9:27 PM edit delete reply

Are you saying we should blame you TOO, velvet?!?
plymayer 9th Oct 2014, 12:59 AM edit delete reply


All these folks getting injured, hope they will be up to performing the mission when the time comes.
Centcomm 9th Oct 2014, 1:06 AM edit delete reply

well remember so far this is par the course for anyone spending any time getting hammered by the signal.. and the only one pretty much immune is Galina..
Stormwind13 9th Oct 2014, 7:01 AM edit delete reply

Well plymayer, the Mission is to get Galina to the aliens to try and open communications with them. It is just possible that there won't be anyone ELSE alive by the time the ship gets there. Looking rather more likely now.
Aurora 9th Oct 2014, 1:29 AM edit delete reply
I now understand why this ship is described the way it is in Datachasers...
Centcomm 9th Oct 2014, 1:46 AM edit delete reply

Yes this is one of many reasons :D
Fairportfan 9th Oct 2014, 1:41 AM edit delete reply

This sequence is way too long and dragged out, i'm sorry to say.
Centcomm 9th Oct 2014, 1:47 AM edit delete reply

Sorry about that.. not sure how it could have been shortened .. but this is the last page of the "fight". This is also a major plot point.
Tokyo Rose 9th Oct 2014, 11:04 PM edit delete reply

Hey, Cent, HOW frequently did we have to remind each other that we can only post two pages a week? :D
Centcomm 10th Oct 2014, 6:49 AM edit delete reply

too much.. LOL
Haegan2005 9th Oct 2014, 1:45 AM edit delete reply

This will leave a bruise...
Centcomm 9th Oct 2014, 1:48 AM edit delete reply

yes it certainly would..
Dragonrider 9th Oct 2014, 1:54 AM edit delete reply

Colonel you just made the biggest wrong turn of your life. Hopefully our heroine doesn't walk in on this scene. However if her boyfriend does he might consider himself lucky if the Colonel takes him out it will be much less painful than if Galina's Mom gets a hold of him.
Centcomm 9th Oct 2014, 2:00 AM edit delete reply

yep this is going to be a major turning point in the col's life.
Haegan2005 9th Oct 2014, 2:06 AM edit delete reply

unless our good captain has a card to play, this will get ugly. There is not anyone on board who can stop this guy once he is loose.

Cent, now I am wondering who breaks this little dance card up.
Centcomm 9th Oct 2014, 2:08 AM edit delete reply

Well that so happens to be on the next page .. don't count our good captain out yet..
Timotheus 9th Oct 2014, 3:52 AM edit delete reply

Well let's see, if my guess is right our good cyborg modified samurai captain can either pull out some sort of EMP mutual knock out burst to take them both out, some sort of internal taser, a rocket punch (or Aphrodite A alternate), or the grandmother of all sticky bombs.
Timotheus 9th Oct 2014, 3:55 AM edit delete reply

I forgot to add giant pleading anime eyes.
Stormwind13 9th Oct 2014, 6:47 AM edit delete reply

I don't think the Colonel would even NOTICE pleading anime eyes right now, Tim. I mean he just shot Kiku staring her right in the eyes. That was cold.
Centcomm 9th Oct 2014, 1:29 PM edit delete reply

hehe .. well we shall see how this plays out..
Nystran 9th Oct 2014, 11:30 AM edit delete reply
Just guessing: if he walks into the shielded cargo hold, he will come to his senses.
Centcomm 9th Oct 2014, 2:04 PM edit delete reply

they just have to get him there first..
howard 9th Oct 2014, 2:51 AM edit delete reply
So exactly how many people are you gonna let this crazy person kill before he gets taken down? At this rate we are only gonna have the crude pilot Galina and Jet!!
Centcomm 9th Oct 2014, 1:32 PM edit delete reply

the pilot is already down.. he was drugged and kept out of the way. when he lost it..
cattservant 9th Oct 2014, 2:57 AM edit delete reply

That will shuffle the play list.
Stormwind13 9th Oct 2014, 6:55 AM edit delete reply

The dance card got torn up, cat. No one else on board can physically tangle with the Colonel!
Centcomm 9th Oct 2014, 2:05 PM edit delete reply

there might be one...
highlander55 9th Oct 2014, 9:27 PM edit delete reply

I say Edict is the one.

Also on a side note Cent- solid projectile on a space ship. Not too smart if it breaches the hull.
Tokyo Rose 9th Oct 2014, 11:07 PM edit delete reply

The hull is durable enough that a handgun round could not cause significant damage.
Stormwind13 9th Oct 2014, 9:35 PM edit delete reply

Some of the bots might be as strong as the the Colonel. As he already proven though, he is MORE than a match for one of them.
Stormwind13 9th Oct 2014, 6:54 AM edit delete reply

Oh SHIT!!! He shot her after limiting her mobility. He shot her before she could shoot him. Since he had taken away her ability to deal with him any other way.

That doesn't seem to be a minor wound either. He blew a hole thru her chest. I know she is cyber-enhanced, but that looks super serious. I would say fatal, but the medical technology MIGHT be good enough to keep her alive. If anyone SURVIVES to assist her. :-\
Centcomm 9th Oct 2014, 1:32 PM edit delete reply

yep all these things are true..
velvetsanity 9th Oct 2014, 9:31 PM edit delete reply

If the bullet put a hole in a lung or in her heart (or, say, the aorta), they likely only have a few short minutes to get her to medbay...unless we're going for the miracle resurrection or undead angle. If it miraculously missed those particular organs, she has a good chance of surviving a bit longer. If the ammo is large caliber hollow point as I suspect...I think she's a goner because it's unlikely that help will arrive in time. I've seen what hollow points do to ballistic gel (which is designed to simulate the human body when shot).

Some sort of nanite implant might be able to help, if nanite tech is advanced enough.

Lots of 'if's here. Guess we'll see on Tuesday.
mjkj 9th Oct 2014, 7:05 AM edit delete reply

Outch, poor Captain Kiku...
Centcomm 9th Oct 2014, 1:32 PM edit delete reply

yep .. thats gonna leave a mark ..
Mayyday 9th Oct 2014, 12:12 PM edit delete reply

Oh no. Oh nonononono...

I knew nothing good could come of this.
Centcomm 9th Oct 2014, 1:33 PM edit delete reply

nope.. nothing good..
Dragonrider 9th Oct 2014, 3:57 PM edit delete reply

Yano some days it doesn't even pay to get up in the morning. Especially when the full-on Cyber Specialist has PMS.
Centcomm 9th Oct 2014, 7:14 PM edit delete reply

I know right ?
Matt Knab 9th Oct 2014, 4:40 PM edit delete reply

"I really don't want to hurt you...but I'm gonna shoot you in the chest anyways."
Centcomm 9th Oct 2014, 7:15 PM edit delete reply

hehe - you gotta admit it was a awesome line..
Dan 9th Oct 2014, 8:38 PM edit delete reply
Ow ow ow ow. Bikinis are going to be a pain from now on.
Guest 10th Oct 2014, 3:13 AM edit delete reply
I love Kiku as much as the next guy, but somehow I don't see her ever wearing a bikini for any reason at any time
Centcomm 10th Oct 2014, 6:49 AM edit delete reply

Oh Kiku has been known to wear one once in a while...
DLKmusic 11th Oct 2014, 4:23 AM edit delete reply
Any possibility we could get a pic of that as a sunday art special?
(what can I say? I AM a guy!)
Centcomm 11th Oct 2014, 4:46 AM edit delete reply

Ill see what I can do ..
Dan 11th Oct 2014, 9:27 AM edit delete reply
Yes please +1 to Kiku bikini...its for a friend...yeah
Centcomm 12th Oct 2014, 6:44 PM edit delete reply

well check out the top web comics incentive :D
Centcomm 12th Oct 2014, 6:45 PM edit delete reply

congrats ! its up at TOP web comics :D
DLKmusic 12th Oct 2014, 11:24 PM edit delete reply
WOOHOO!!!!! Kiku in a Bikini! I actually saw it voting before I saw that you posted it here....
Now, when I get home for work, I get to vote again! Bwuahahahahahah.....
highlander55 11th Oct 2014, 11:52 PM edit delete reply

And battle scars are a badge of honor sometimes. Shows she is no pushover.
Boren 10th Oct 2014, 12:41 PM edit delete reply
To me it looks like he put the round just inside and down of her shoulder, IF I'm seeing this right he shot her to incapacitate her right arm in just about the one spot that wouldn't do permanent damage.
stormbringer77 10th Oct 2014, 2:29 PM edit delete reply

I don't think she's dead.Why would he want to kill some perfectly beautiful Eye Candy?Like Boren said,just inside & down her shoulder won't kill her.But it WILL incapacitate her from moving along for a while.
Stormwind13 13th Oct 2014, 12:16 AM edit delete reply

Because CentComm and Rose are EVIL, stormbringer!
Timotheus 11th Oct 2014, 2:24 AM edit delete reply

So is now the moment the bridge watch AI floods the chamber with knock out gas in response to the earlier alert from the captain?
CptKerion 11th Oct 2014, 6:37 PM edit delete reply
I'm beginning to wonder why Tinfoil hats were not issued for this expedition.
Stormwind13 12th Oct 2014, 11:09 PM edit delete reply

Oh sure, NOW you give us a beautiful picture of Kiku for a vote incentive. After you just blew a hole thru her, probably killing HER!!! :-P
