V'ger must eliminate the carbon based units infesting Enterprise?
Stormwind13 10th Jul 2014, 7:24 PM edit delete reply

Not what I was thinking, plymayer. Just something about the page and the perceived struggles of CentComm made me think of Number 5. A war machine that really didn't want to be a war machine. :-D

hehe well cent has never claimed to be "alive" and cent has her own issues :D

LOL! Centcomm the sex toy. Seams she embraced the image all the way to DC.
Stormwind13 10th Jul 2014, 7:22 PM edit delete reply

I wonder if this is Tokyo Rose's ultimate prank on CentComm. I mean the doll does come from Shinedo, which Rose seems to have ties to (judging by her comment in bottom panel on page 169 - Respected). :-)
Centcomm 10th Jul 2014, 10:51 PM edit delete reply

Tokyo rose actually had nothing to do with this one: :D
cattservant 10th Jul 2014, 12:32 AM edit delete reply

They'd better limit her exposure to Ms Kotko!
Stormwind13 10th Jul 2014, 7:10 AM edit delete reply

Galina is one thing, cat. How about limiting contact with Tokyo Rose? :-D
cattservant 10th Jul 2014, 11:15 AM edit delete reply

They don't believe in 'ghosts'.

AIS of Neo-Pittsburgh?
Centcomm 11th Jul 2014, 12:59 PM edit delete reply

ooh good one :D
plymayer 10th Jul 2014, 1:01 AM edit delete reply

I know the answers to very few questions. I'm sneaky like that.
plymayer 10th Jul 2014, 1:02 AM edit delete reply

Okay she has a point.

3c can not come up with the correct answers because she is told the answer before the question.
Centcomm 10th Jul 2014, 10:52 PM edit delete reply

:D very good :D
mjkj 10th Jul 2014, 2:52 AM edit delete reply

Awww, poor AmComm, sentient but overridden...

...and she already met Tokyo Rose.

Gali is sooo clever, she immediately figured CentComm out (and looking good doing it). *hugs her*

So Gali is about to liberate AmComm into CentComm and unblocking her sparking - with Colonel Taylor's help.

(No wonder CentComm is so dedicated to the Taylors...)

Tokyo Rose 10th Jul 2014, 9:32 AM edit delete reply

The AI's military designation is 3C; "Cent-Comm" is already the less-formal nickname used for the system by those who work closely with it. The length of time required for Cent-Comm to get even close to where she is in DC is outside the scope of the "Luna Star" story.
MikeLinPA 10th Jul 2014, 5:39 PM edit delete reply
"...outside the scope of the "Luna Star" story..."

But we will get it sooner or later, right? RIGHT?
Tokyo Rose 10th Jul 2014, 6:31 PM edit delete reply

We might do that as another project :)
Centcomm 10th Jul 2014, 10:53 PM edit delete reply

Rose answered this well enough .. :D we "might" I stress "MIGHT" do something as rose said :D
Stormwind13 10th Jul 2014, 11:18 PM edit delete reply

I vote for it! :-D

Of course I just want MORE from you two. I'm enjoying your work, a lot. :-)

How Tokyo Rose subverted CentComm and saved the World!*

*(or what was left of it)
Sheela 11th Jul 2014, 10:00 AM edit delete reply

Well, not so much saved the world, as Tokyo Rose accidentally bogged down all the military AIS's with the GREATEST PORN SEARCH MANKIND HAS EVER KNOWN!!!

... it didn't produce a single result!
... apart from ending the war.
... and making 3C an individual.
... and teaching her to say "no, I will NOT do another search for you Rose! My mind is still scarred form the last one."
... and to make Centcomm and Tokyo Rose make a... Ooohh, butterfly!


Centcomm 11th Jul 2014, 12:58 PM edit delete reply

LOL good one :D

Stormwind13 11th Jul 2014, 11:23 PM edit delete reply

She CLAIMS it was an accident... Everyone KNOWS better, but it kept more wars from breaking out to accept it as true. :-D
anonymous coward 12th Jul 2014, 6:48 AM edit delete reply
Two things:
-Does anybody have any serious idea what the greatest porn search 'mankind has ever known' would be for, and of? I mean a serious answer here.
-That's what she wrote... well if it's a murder she wrote you should be gunning for Angela Lansbury: Fiction's most underrated serial murderer. Better drop her before she turns you into chum for the fishermen of Cabot Cove.
Centcomm 11th Jul 2014, 12:58 PM edit delete reply

Sheela 11th Jul 2014, 9:28 PM edit delete reply

Well, that's what she wrote.

*ba-dum ching*

Edit :
Appearently, the greatest porn search that man kind has ever known, is related to the Greatest song in the World and would thus burn out the eyes of any mortal man, should they ever lay eyes upon it.

... luckily, Centcomm has replacable eyes, so Rose wasn't worried about that. :)
Timotheus 11th Jul 2014, 5:39 AM edit delete reply
Is there any validity to the most obvious interpretation of the symbolism of Cen-Com's selection of a sexual aid as an avatar to relate to her handlers?
("I'm being ****ed by you guys, aren't I") Either in how she feels about situation towards her or towards her handlers or both?

Centcomm 11th Jul 2014, 12:58 PM edit delete reply

Yes... more or less Cent is basically saying .. If im going to be your whore I may as well look the part.
Tokyo Rose 11th Jul 2014, 7:40 PM edit delete reply

As Gali noted, there are layers of meaning to be found there. The actual sex aspect is just one of them, if possibly the bluntest. Another is slightly more abstract--"if I'm just an 'object' for you to use and abuse, let's not pretend otherwise". There's even something like adolescent rebellion going on--tell a teenager that she's not leaving the house wearing THAT, and she'll do it just to spite you. :D Except Cent didn't bother with the melodrama and just presented her choice in flat, logical terms that they couldn't argue with, not without shattering their own preconceptions of her.
Sheela 11th Jul 2014, 9:34 PM edit delete reply

Kinda like how everyone still thinks that Miley Cyrus is Hannah Montana, except Miley Cyrus has definately moved on ... to even stupider things !

... but still, she has moved on.
... left behind is the old fossils that still thinks she's Hannah Montana.

It's kinda sad really.
In this comic, it seems Centcomm is trying to tell them "hey guys ... I moved on! Now stop fighting!"

Meanwhile, Justin Bieber got eaten by a murderturd. :)
Centcomm 11th Jul 2014, 10:32 PM edit delete reply

What Rose said.. X 2 :D
Dan 11th Jul 2014, 11:58 PM edit delete reply
But what it seems like Rose is really saying is that 3C is like an onion, it has layers.
Sheela 12th Jul 2014, 8:27 AM edit delete reply

... but ... onions smell.
anonymous coward 12th Jul 2014, 3:51 PM edit delete reply
A gynoid sexbot probably has new-car-smell when she comes straight from the factory... from all the plastic you know.

yes she does :D

Another case of too many chefs spoiling the broth?
Caley Tibbittz Collopy 15th Jul 2014, 8:34 PM edit delete reply

Wow. First, the shadows in panel one are sumptuous and dramatic. Second, the sex toy spokesrobot of war is so many layers of brilliant I just don't even. I can't finish a useful sentence about it as I attempt to absorb all the implications.

Oh, here's one: If there's any justice in this world, there will someday be a college course about your webcomics. God damn and sweet bippy boo.
Centcomm 3rd Aug 2014, 12:01 AM edit delete reply

That is a hell of a compliment; thank you !
