Dumping the living biths into space as a distraction? You think the clients are going to rescue them rather then blast you for dumping the biths into space?
Hope you figure the client race mentality correctly.
The Biths general would obviously not stay in one of the cryoboxes, so it is a safe move.
Maybe it’s just the sort of thing a bith general would do. They do seem pretty ruthless.
Maybe they figure that in the general confusion of battle and an unexpected dumping of live cargo nobody will think to go after them–
Pretty likely, at least with human mentalilty
Ejecting cryo-tubes with living Biths equals “LIVING CHAFF and A TARGET RICH ENVIRONMENT”. Human ingenuity in war at it’s finest!
Personal thoughts of the living Bith on Panel 3, Lower Right: “Oh f**k! F**k! F**k!…I knew I should have never traveled coach…if I ever get out of this alive I’m gonna find that damn travel agent and have his gonads for dinner!”
See? Jago agrees with me!
However, in reply to the Bith’s thoughts… the thoughts of the Bith travel agent selling coach tickets: “Weak piece of trash. If something goes wrong with coach it’s his fault for being a panzy. What a loser.”
….. Maybe the Bith would get along with Twinklebitch in that regard.
They’re probably his Progeny……
Actually, in the spirit of this comic’s dialogue, I believe the translator would render the ejected Bithynian’s thoughts as, “Well, shit.”
Only after reading the comments did I realize that the cryo pods could have been dumped by our heros. But I’m not convinced. It’s also possible that these pods were merely ejected when the atmosphere was vented. Hmm. But if that was the case, we should also see some bodies as well… I’m reserving judgement until later.
You should look at panel 1, showing the pods on the ship, and panel 3, showing the ship no longer has pods on it, but there are pods floating free, and reconsider your reserved judgement.
Oh yeah, and panel 2 where the hero is prominently pressing a button that replies ‘BEEP!”. I doubt this was intended to be taken as a random act. Perhaps a pod release, taken the rest of the evidence?
Ah, I see that now. Thanks for pointing it out. But why in the world would they do that in front of everyone? It’s the equivelant of broadcasting on all radio frequencies: “Hey losers, we’re not your allies, and we just gettisoned all possible hostages.”
well, i guess that mean’s no sushi for their in-flight meal…
Our hero is betting to much on his sweet talk abilities to get the girl in the mood … He shoot lasers and need no dang candle light diner
From a woman’s point-of-view, he’ll do better with the candles–Trust Me!
One word, Xav–
[That would be like eatin' that nice, friendly Octo-Whore]
i found shark a bit intense for my flavor choices, but good nonetheless, and octopus is delicious.
I’ve never tried shark (too ecology-conscience), but you’re right about the calamari!
[Tho' I hafta' admit I'd never eat a cephalopod I'd gotten to know personally.....]
