    Why is the outpost abandoned? Maybe it’s the giant spooky giant glowing giant green giant skull nebula in panels 1 & 5 that’s sucking up glowing asteroids like a kid inhaling a bag of M&Ms that nobody has noticed.

    I sense a recurring theme. “iMate-y! Board that ship and probe for ASS, Pirate Queen Trina!” She even has the skull & crossbones on her tank top. Coincidence? I think not!

    You wave those doom flags proudly and with all your might, Trina! Saronia will name a half carafe of decaf hazel chocolate chai in your honor.

    1. 😂 YESS!!!

  3. Well, Tirin understands why Trina exists, anyway. Billy got tired of Rosy Palm and her five daughters.

    1. You got it! 🤣

    2. This feels a lot deeper than just that. As he stated, he’s feeling guilty about having Trina. He specifically stayed away from green eyes because that is something special to him about Tirin & she knows it. Tirin recognizes that Trina is a kind of hollow substitute, and, despite her actions to this point, still wants to be *special* to Billy. Tirin is now primed to have some _really_ complex emotions about Billy.

      OTOH, Trina is again displaying an almost charming naivety about things. In fact, there is likely a specific blind spot about Billy and relationships so enable him to move on if he chooses without her becoming a tricked out combat nypho bot with a psychotic break.

      1. Re-reading this chapter, I’m concerned that Trina’s hypothetical blind spot has been illuminated. In fact, she seems downright clingy before meeting PANK & friend. And of course, putting PANK through the door was a deliberate attempt to anger Tirin at Billy.

        Uggh. Fatal Attraction, far future style…

        1. I won’t be ignored, Billy!

  5. No ominous foreshadowing here, nuh-uh, nope, nosiree.
