Well damn! Ophelia didn't fare a lot better than the redshirts. :( So much for Cassian confidence.

It looks like the explosion got her rather than the beam. Is that correct? The tank exploded?

At first I speculated that this was something leftover from Centcomm doing stuff, but one of her units would already know to not engage and likely would have been withdrawing for several days now.

That makes this an unknown third party that just picked a fight with Nova Roma.

This can not be good. Nova Roma will know something happened quickly when this unit does not check in. The question is, is there a reaction force nearby that can get there quickly? Possibly. But are they well armed enough to take this bot on? Probably not since they were armed and expecting to face gutters, not other combat units.

I do recall suggesting that they might be up against full milspec assets. Of course, I was thinking that it was the gutters in control. That now seems unlikely.
Morituri 21st Mar 2018, 2:41 AM edit delete reply
Whatever this is it's mostly a machine - at least, the on-the-ground weapons handling and situational response etc is, because of the lack of biological parts with that kind of speed and the strength to handle whatever kind of heavy-weapons that setup has got to be.

But whatever's making the actual fire control decisions - possibly but not necessarily also a machine - is glitching, and glitching hard.

It's uncertain of its targets and uncertain of its effects. It has not acknowledged or responded in any way to the switchover in opponent faction from gutters to Nova Roma troops. It is not apparently pursuing any coherent strategic objective beyond wreaking havoc upon targets of opportunity. Most coherent objectives would distinguish factions, for starters. It's reacting instead of planning.

It's making crucial distinctions *AFTER* the moment in which plans could have formed differently based on those distinctions.

So far it benefits from blind luck, speed, and massive firepower compensating its tactical and intelligence limitations.

But it's engaging in combat like a massively over-spec, hyper-speed, auto-targeting, auto-reactive weapons platform operating under the command of a drunk four-year-old.

Also, FWIW, it would appear to be a drunk four-year-old trained (if you can call it that) for some kind of suicide mission. What it's doing right now brings in a heavy airstrike within two minutes, whoever set it up knows this, and it's still here.
Gilrandir 21st Mar 2018, 8:25 AM edit delete reply
I'm not so sure it's targeting algorithm is glitching. It seems simple and consistent: target armored threats from nearest to farthest away, then proceed to other threats until all are neutralized. Considering it appears armored itself, that isn't all that implausible. And, in the list of things going for it, you might substitute "shields and armor" for "blind luck", @Morituri. We don't (yet) see if Ophelia's shots had any effect at all, but I very much doubt she missed all six times.

One hopes that some of the drone footage is on its way to Nova Roma so that their response is an informed response. Given the font, the design, and the tech, I suspect offworld involvement. Quite possibly with epiphyte-level technology. Dispatch the cyberpaths! Oh,wait ... Nova Roma doesn't have cyberpaths? That's a shame.

You must have missed up above where Ophelia says "aw no damage"
Gilrandir 21st Mar 2018, 11:34 AM edit delete reply
I saw it. That's technically 'second hand' data. We didn't actually 'see' the effects (or lack thereof). And sometimes damage isn't immediately obvious. I do expect, however, that you are right and that all six shots hit the target with no appreciable effect -- which is why I assert 'shields and armor' rather than any kind of hyper-speed.

Hmm... Consider how this comic starts and what the main plot revolved around: Lynn Taylor getting kidnapped by gutters out in the wastes.

If one considers how a certain AI thinks, the resources spent to resolve that problem and how it almost led to dire consequences for at least two city-states (if not the entire world), wouldn't it make sense to prevent something like this from happening again (if not against Lynn Taylor, then against others under said AI's protection)? And didn't Lynn Taylor chew out said AI for using an android to rescue her - an android that was/became self-aware? So, why not send war-bots to clean up the gutter problem?

Consider, too, that these are war-bots. Asimov's laws of robotics probably don't apply. Self-preservation has to be one of their priorities and these Roman Forces did threaten and/or attack it. And I recall TeeDee complaining about how stupid bots are.

Maybe it's not who I'm insinuating. Conflict with Nova Roma would be undesirable. Even bots should be able to identify Roman uniforms... right? But the only other major player in the area I can think of would be Luna. It did sound like that is who Logrin works for. But... war-bots?

Centuries of warfare, ever more destructive and sophisticated, ending when the AIs said stop.
There has to be an awful lot of stuff left over, forgotten, quiescent....
Somebody, some gutter gang of fossickers stumbles across an old weapon, and it wakes up...
It is confused; there is no IFF it recognises; everything is a target.
This is of course Keith Laumer's BOLO of the DinoChrome Brigade.

Also consider this, it is not an unheard-of plot device to start a story talking about something that references something else in this case the earlier lunar Star Stories and then shifts the focus part way through.

As much as I like Ophelia. She made a tactical mistake that I wouldn't expect of Cassian's. Knowing that there's all sorts of munitions out in the wastes and with the people being taken out like flies being swatted she should have made an attempt to get the warning out rather than trying to go for close combat.

This thing is plainly High powered to be able to generate such fast moving hot rounds on a repeated basis.

I was tempted to say on the last page, If it can vaporize body armor like that I doubt the tank will stand up to it.
xpacetrue 21st Mar 2018, 12:41 PM edit delete reply

Yeah, but... How thick do you think the armor was on that "tank"? And wasn't it more like an APC than a true tank? Also, since Nova Roma disabled the AIS that controlled their factories, they've been forced to manufacture their own tanks. I vaguely recall a page talking about the Roman military forces which suggested that, while their equipment may be technologically inferior to New Troy's or even outdated, they make up for that by their sheer numbers and that they shouldn't be underestimated.

I'm just suggesting that, while the feat of blowing up a Nova Roman light tank or APC is kind of impressive, it's probably not nearly as impressive as blowing up a New Troy state-of-the-art medium or heavy tank. (But that's assuming they have any. I suspect Cent-Com relies a lot on war-bots, attack drones and similar unmanned units.)
Just_IDD 21st Mar 2018, 11:07 PM edit delete reply
Zerg rush tactics only work if you have all of the zergs in one place. An 8 man unit is what I think we had here and the "everyone come to the main building" still bothers me since its tactically unsound.

When the one hit wonder shot his first zerg they should have been finding good cover positions and been looking for retreat options. As far as was shown they stood around and got shot standing out in the open. No grenades, no morters, no basic demolition tools. They weren't there for a social call and the party is more fun if you bring lots of favors

There is a lot of good speculation going on about what this foe might be. Kudos. Something that has been mentioned, would be that whatever it's physical embodiment, it seems to be ailing. Maybe not physically, but whatever controls it does not seem as it should be. I get the impression that whatever it's directives once were, they have devolved into the perception that all moving things are threats which must be dealt with decisively.

It doesn't strike me as robot; this seems more like a damaged or otherwise malfunctioning synth brain at work here. I could be wrong, (read probably am wrong), but this could be a malfunctioning military android or hybrid of some kind.

xpacetrue 21st Mar 2018, 6:53 PM edit delete reply

I hope I'm wrong as I liked Ophelia, myself. However, I won't fall into the trap of being too optimistic just because I want it to be so.

Looking at the little that's left of Ophelia in the last panel, I can't imagine that she's recoverable. The wreckage is even sparking. And, clearly, her main power supply is gone - most likely located in her torso.

Even if she is currently online, I don't see how her synth brain could survive long enough for a response team from Nova Roma to be dispatched and arrive in time. And that assumes they have the technology to do so. New Troy must be way ahead of Nova Roma in android technology and even they do not have a 100% recovery rate for "flashing" critically damaged androids. Does Nova Roma even have the ability to "flash" them?
megados 21st Mar 2018, 7:42 PM edit delete reply
"New Troy must be way ahead of Nova Roma in android technology and even they do not have a 100% recovery rate for "flashing" critically damaged androids. Does Nova Roma even have the ability to "flash" them?"

That is something that has been sort of shrouded in mystery by the creative duo. Very little has been discussed concerning Nova Roma androids beyond that there are some, and that they aren't very well regarded.

I also had a fleeting thought about whether Ophelia is recoverable, and pretty much dismissed out of hand. I hope that was wrong. As you say, I can't imagine Roma tech being up to the level of New Troy. Would it be possible that New Troy, and maybe Dr. Silver might be persuaded to assist? If it can be done, my guess is that's how to go about it.
xpacetrue 21st Mar 2018, 9:38 PM edit delete reply

"Would it be possible that New Troy, and maybe Dr. Silver might be persuaded to assist? If it can be done, my guess is that's how to go about it."

Interesting idea. I'd really like to see something like that happen, if nothing else to see New Troy and Nova Roma cooperating and trying to mend fences. Though, I seriously doubt Maxus or Noctis would consent to giving a New Troy agent - much less Dr. Silver, the scary cyberpath - such access to a Cassian. Imagine the potential for Cent-Comm to learn damaging state or military secrets from such.

But it makes sense that Maxus would strongly desire to save Ophilia if at all possible. For one, she'd be the only one who could give an account of what happened.
megados 21st Mar 2018, 10:42 PM edit delete reply
". . . I seriously doubt Maxus or Noctis would consent to giving a New Troy agent - much less Dr. Silver, the scary cyberpath - such access to a Cassian. Imagine the potential for Cent-Comm to learn damaging state or military secrets from such."

That is one of a few flaws in this hypothetical scenario. Maxus is reasonable, and depending on how much he wants the Intel, and whether he can be assured security could be preserved, I think he might agree. Noctis would definitely object strenuously, however, and be difficult to convince, but it might be possible, if Maxus is convinced.

I agree that it would be good for bridge-building between Roma and Troy, as well as Maxus gaining some possibly useful intel. It could also prove cathartic for Noctis, if she is involved. (also, I was also getting to like Ophelia)

It will require some quick action to preserve Ophelia's persona though, or all becomes moot.

I don't know if they would care. The only reason I can think of would be if they need intel that Ophelia could provide.

Yep, for the most part, androids aren't well regarded in Nova Roma. Maxus seems to hold them in higher regard than most do, though.
Gilrandir 27th Mar 2018, 3:16 AM edit delete reply
It doesn't seem likely that there is anyone left to take 'quick action' to save Ophelia. As for any longer-term recovery, I'll point out that Ophelia would seem to have been left in roughly the same condition as Nox (with a dash of TeeDee's flames thrown in). So, if we see her again, there's no reason at this time not to expect we might see Nox returning as well. But I think that unlikely, so whatever they have planned, I am sure we'll get some explanation as to what's behind it.
xpacetrue 27th Mar 2018, 6:55 AM edit delete reply

@Gilrandir
Those are good points. And it would be hard to argue against them. However, I would point out that Ophelia only just suffered 'mortal injury' here - as in, no appreciable time has passed, yet. I could imagine Logrin and/or Dusty investigating this scene and attempting to save her. (Perhaps this is near their base?)

As for pointing out that Ophelia is in roughly the same shape as Nox: I thought the same thing, myself. Though, even among humans who suffer nearly identical mortal injuries, it would not be surprising if some of them survive and some of them do not. A mere centimeter or millimeter can make all the difference. I'm no doctor, but doesn't it depend on whether a vital organ is traumatized, an artery is pierced, or if they're treated in time?

I think something similar could explain why Ophelia survived and Nox did not - should it occur. We may not expect this outcome - I certainly don't - but the creator duo has surprised us on more than one occasion.
megados 27th Mar 2018, 10:01 AM edit delete reply
@Gilrandir, I don't disagree with any of that. I'm not advocating for one position or another; just looking at possibilities. We don't really know what the Cassian androids consist of, so it's hard to say what is or isn't possible. While I don't know of any cases where this type of injury was not fatal in humans, I can't necessarily assume this is the case with androids, or if it differs by model or type. For instance, do androids (some or all) have an adjunct power supply in the cranial area to allow for some limited backup power? If so, the circumstances may not be as dire as they seem. Then should we expect Nox to reappear? Maybe, maybe not. Might it depend on where such a power supply might be located, kind of like what xpacetrue suggests? If Dolly's shot shorted out any such power supply in Nox, she would not be as easily recoverable as if Ophelia's equivalent were undamaged. Alas, we don't really know if they work that way. If we did, we might have an idea about how quick is 'quick'.

While there is no one left of her squad, might there be others in the area interested in recovering her? I have no idea.
antrik 28th Mar 2018, 4:41 AM edit delete reply
I'd like to point out that the neck area seems to be fairly undamaged (apart from cosmetics) -- unlike with Nox. (Or Malati, for that matter...) That could make all the difference.
hoppy 23rd Mar 2018, 2:01 PM edit delete reply
Well if you can't flash then having a backup power supply and sleep mode makes sense to me.
Sheela 27th Mar 2018, 6:03 PM edit delete reply

I would reckon that loosing limbs on an android is not fatal, just crippling.
Also, the lower part of the torso might also be not-fatal.

But the head would hold the synth brain, and the upper torso would likely hold the powerplant, loosing the powerplant would be fatal in the long run, I think. But being decapitated, the head might survived for a short while, say ... something like 10 minutes or so.

"Sufficiently neutralized"...

That reminds me of the fallacy that if you wound an enemy combatant it takes several more to remove them from the field then patch them up thus forcing the enemy to use additional resources and being a good thing in general.

Truth is, the enemy already had medics, stretcher bearers, evac teams and medical facilities manned and ready so no net loss of manpower other than the casualty and that's what reinforcements are for.

If you just wound one, as we seem to see here with our new Cassian friend, she'll be back...experienced, with information she didn't have earlier, probably in a better equipped and armed body, and PISSED !!!! (at least I hope so, I kind of like her and this isn't GoT..I hope)

This is why 'neutralization teams' (snipers, etc.) don't shoot to wound senior officers, field commanders or other valuable assets, they kill them, on the spot. Why give an enemy APC a flat tire when you can blow it up entirely ?
Sheela 22nd Mar 2018, 6:03 PM edit delete reply

It also precludes that the enemy doesn't just "double-tab" the wounded and get on with their war.

In Sclock Mercenary, they just cut the heads of their comrades, put them in a stasis bag, and have the doctor regrow a new body when they get home. A Bag of heads isn't gonna slow down a soldier in power armor very much.
