Colecting a lot of good info.
Centcomm 24th Aug 2014, 10:45 PM edit delete reply

Yep - its part of her actual purpose . infiltration :D
Stormwind13 25th Aug 2014, 3:05 AM edit delete reply

Now the question is Kara just naturally friendly or does she belong to Rose and is instructed to pass along information to the New Troy pair? :-)
Centcomm 25th Aug 2014, 10:10 AM edit delete reply

Kara ? are you talking about the Hangar tech?
Stormwind13 25th Aug 2014, 1:28 PM edit delete reply

For some reason, while still waking up this morning I was thinking that was her name. Yes the Hangar Tech, CentComm
Centcomm 25th Aug 2014, 11:29 PM edit delete reply

hehe :D
Haegan2005 24th Aug 2014, 10:18 PM edit delete reply

That was a surprisingly effective info gather there...
Centcomm 24th Aug 2014, 10:46 PM edit delete reply

Yes it really was.. almost Mister Black smooth :D
Sheela 25th Aug 2014, 1:20 AM edit delete reply

Not quite Ranger Logrin smooth, though.
But then, he was also exceptionally smooth.
Centcomm 25th Aug 2014, 10:10 AM edit delete reply

LOL true
cattservant 24th Aug 2014, 10:46 PM edit delete reply

Into the ears of innocents!
Centcomm 24th Aug 2014, 10:51 PM edit delete reply

Innocent.. smirks..
cattservant 24th Aug 2014, 11:04 PM edit delete reply

Wouldn't Kali & Kompany have some personal interest in a high-end New Troy android?
Centcomm 24th Aug 2014, 11:17 PM edit delete reply

More than likely .. yes. If they knew about her :D
Sheela 25th Aug 2014, 1:21 AM edit delete reply

Oh, they will ... they will !
Stormwind13 25th Aug 2014, 3:00 AM edit delete reply

I think there is LITTLE that escapes the Cassians' attention in Nova Roma.
Sheela 25th Aug 2014, 8:13 AM edit delete reply

If nothing else, they'll notice her once she starts shooting plasma beams all over the place while Dolly makes things go BOOM. :D
Centcomm 25th Aug 2014, 10:12 AM edit delete reply

heheh :D
mjkj 25th Aug 2014, 2:23 PM edit delete reply

So true, Sheela, so true...
Rashala 24th Aug 2014, 10:57 PM edit delete reply

Well we all know what would happen if Ceci got shot by one of those Guards..

A thousand voices would all across the DC universe would cry out in sorrow.......And One would Shout louder than the rest As the world would start to shake and the sky turn black. That voice would shout. OH YOU ARE SO F**KED NOW!!! And a BEzerker Rash would cut a swath of destruction THROUGH the planet to the guard and *we are sorry the rest of this mental image has been censored for the sanity of all the cast, and anyone coming onto this web page*
Centcomm 24th Aug 2014, 11:00 PM edit delete reply

um wow.. ok Rash.. Decaf? ( j/K ) I like it when people care about characters like that.. lets me and rose know we are doing our job :D
Rashala 25th Aug 2014, 12:33 AM edit delete reply

I;ve nto had caffine for a decade Centy :S Eye thing

And Of course people love the characters in Data chasers Hence Lot of people crying out in sorrow should ceci die....

As for me wellI would be sad too....then....I WOULD GET me....I am fairly sure when I was done with them *if I could getg a hold of her killer* Tedee would look and just mouth Wow!
Sheela 25th Aug 2014, 1:18 AM edit delete reply

Frankly, if someone shot CeCi, they should be more concerned with runing away from CeCi ... *and* Dolly - Retribution would be both swift and merciless.
Centcomm 25th Aug 2014, 10:13 AM edit delete reply

heh :D well the clock is counting down :D
Sheela 25th Aug 2014, 11:20 PM edit delete reply

Well, I was also thinking that CeCi probably wouldn't go down from just one shot.

I suspect she has more hidden armor plating than most androids.
She *is* a black angel after all.
Centcomm 25th Aug 2014, 11:28 PM edit delete reply

She does have sub-dermal combat armor. and her skeleton is hyper-alloys along with a lot of redundancy - see terminator movies.. yeah Ceci can do that.
mjkj 24th Aug 2014, 11:53 PM edit delete reply

Nice, I think I like Kari.

I fear Dari might have an accident on the way to collect the bounty - not that I care.

The grapevine sure tends to distort some facts.

Good thinking, CeCi...

@alt text: Well, are you sure that was all acting? Most of that was genuine bubbly CeCi. Mind that means not she is not a good actress...

Centcomm 25th Aug 2014, 12:16 AM edit delete reply


and probably not all of it was acting. after all the best lies contain truth.
mjkj 25th Aug 2014, 3:21 AM edit delete reply

Sorry, meant Kara :)

Yeah, I believe a bit was acting - if she was shot on sight the guards would not be able to get a second shot on her...

Centcomm 25th Aug 2014, 10:13 AM edit delete reply

I didn't realize we named her.. - LOL
mjkj 25th Aug 2014, 1:57 PM edit delete reply

Oh, sorry...

I thought there was a comment and thought that was her name... :s

Sorry. :s

So, what did you name her?

Edit: Sorry, again, I totally messed that up...

I read Haegan2005's comments at Wolf in Wolfs clothing.... and assigned his <quote>I'm with Mara on this one!</quote> and then his correcting <quote>oh lord... I meant Kara!</quote> to the hangar tech speaking (panel one) and not to commenter Kara's post - and it somehow stuck - sorry again... :s

...but I do seem not to be the only one that associated that... *points up to Stormwind13's posts*
Centcomm 25th Aug 2014, 3:51 PM edit delete reply

Yes Kara is the commenter LOL I can see how it got mixed up. in the proto-script her name is " Monika " :D ( the hangar tech )
mjkj 27th Aug 2014, 1:44 PM edit delete reply

So, Monika, I wonder if Lucianus is ever going to call her by name in the comic...
Stormwind13 25th Aug 2014, 4:41 PM edit delete reply

The commenters have spoken, CentComm. Your hanger tech is now named Kara. :-D
Hydrargyrum 25th Aug 2014, 6:14 PM edit delete reply

Ya know, Cent, nice nose. On the Hangar Tech Formerly Known as Monika.
Sheela 25th Aug 2014, 1:19 AM edit delete reply

Nice to see some android friendly people are still around in New Rome. :)
Fairportfan 25th Aug 2014, 2:32 AM edit delete reply

People who personally just don't care, one way or the other, more likely.
Sheela 25th Aug 2014, 8:14 AM edit delete reply

She's a slave, so she might have been taken from the wastes, or even from New Troy.

Besides, not everyone have to hate androids.
Centcomm 25th Aug 2014, 10:14 AM edit delete reply

Well for her being a slave is really more of a technicality .. She pretty much runs her own life. Nova Roma Subclasses can also be slaves.
Sheela 25th Aug 2014, 11:05 PM edit delete reply

Well, I was just speculating.

All we know so far, is that she seems friendly to CeCi, and probably likes 'droids. :)
Mark_L_A 15th May 2015, 7:03 AM edit delete reply

Ahhh that explains my confusion on the prior page. I forgot about this on my last run through.
Draginbeard 25th Aug 2014, 1:35 AM edit delete reply

All they need to know now, is what the princesses new companion/slave looks like, or her name, and where to find them (to confirm). Getting Lynn out is still going to be tricky though.
Stormwind13 25th Aug 2014, 3:03 AM edit delete reply

Absolutely, Draginbeard. Tricky is EXACTLY how the 'rescue' is going to be, especially as Lynn is going to FURTHER complicate it. She wants to take Acantha out of the danger in Nova Roma.
mjkj 25th Aug 2014, 3:22 AM edit delete reply

...and then there is Leo interfering...
Centcomm 25th Aug 2014, 10:16 AM edit delete reply

this is indeed where it gets tricky .. remember Dolly isnt even suppose to have made it this far.
mjkj 25th Aug 2014, 1:55 PM edit delete reply

Yeah, especially not before TeeDee and Marcus
Sheela 25th Aug 2014, 11:04 PM edit delete reply

Yeah, TeeDee is gonna be pissed if Dolly steals all the fun!

.. and by fun, I mean all the shooting.
Haegan2005 25th Aug 2014, 5:04 AM edit delete reply

I just realized how many teams are going in at the same time. I suspect they are all going to be getting in each others way somehow. It gave me a keystone cops movie flash... :D
Centcomm 25th Aug 2014, 10:49 AM edit delete reply

Stormwind13 25th Aug 2014, 1:29 PM edit delete reply

It will be a demolition derby, Haegan. As the different teams run smack into one another. PC firefight after 8pm. :-)
Haegan2005 25th Aug 2014, 5:29 PM edit delete reply

I had an image of a big circle with everyone chasing everyone and no one really knowing who everyone is. Until Lynn figures it all out of course!
Stormwind13 25th Aug 2014, 5:53 PM edit delete reply

Keystone Kops, Haegan? :-D
Haegan2005 25th Aug 2014, 7:19 PM edit delete reply

Oh lord i had forgotten just how slap stick they were! And they actually made 10 films... I know what I am doing tomorrow night, all night!
bilateralcomics 25th Aug 2014, 6:12 AM edit delete reply

Man, why do people always have to hate on androids?! No respect, I tell ya...
Centcomm 25th Aug 2014, 10:49 AM edit delete reply

mostly its just Roma
Outlaw 25th Aug 2014, 8:22 AM edit delete reply

Androids NEVER forget... They should be weary of that lol.

Great page!
Sheela 25th Aug 2014, 8:53 AM edit delete reply

That's actually a very good point.

And Dolly have half a century of memories floating around in her noggin' ... anyone and everyone she has ever met is still in there, and if she finds someone she doesn't like in there ... oh my, they could be in trouble.
Centcomm 25th Aug 2014, 10:49 AM edit delete reply

they really should
jas 25th Aug 2014, 9:08 AM edit delete reply

Ceci is really getting her acting skills polished on this one, eh? :)
Centcomm 25th Aug 2014, 10:50 AM edit delete reply

heheh :D
DizzasterJuice 25th Aug 2014, 11:12 AM edit delete reply

This gives me a feel of Mass Effect when they arrive at Noveria. (that's a good thing)
Very good writing!
Centcomm 25th Aug 2014, 12:19 PM edit delete reply

yay! I have a lot of respect for the Mass effect games :D they are in general very well written :D
Matt Knab 25th Aug 2014, 12:52 PM edit delete reply

Yikes, sounds like a strict "leash law" for androids round here.
Stormwind13 25th Aug 2014, 1:30 PM edit delete reply

Shoot if alone, that is a little MORE than strict Matt. Geez. :-p
Centcomm 25th Aug 2014, 2:16 PM edit delete reply

yeah.. right now its that bad
KarToon12 25th Aug 2014, 1:32 PM edit delete reply

Gotta' love your new avatar. XD
Centcomm 25th Aug 2014, 2:48 PM edit delete reply

yep - I was wondering if somepony was going to mention it :D
Stormwind13 25th Aug 2014, 3:36 PM edit delete reply

So you were wondering if anyone was going to pony up to your joke bar, CentComm?
Sheela 25th Aug 2014, 11:07 PM edit delete reply

Someone already noticed on the previous comic page. :)
Dragonrider 25th Aug 2014, 3:52 PM edit delete reply

If that wasn't a warning from Tokyo Rose then, Houston we have a big problem Ceci has been ID'd as an android. Second I have a feeling there may be a buried program still set to explode in Ceci.
Now what hasn't been mentioned is Mother Taylor, Breaker and the rest of Fallon's band of Merry Mayhem Makers. Have a feeling Douchie Poo is soon due for a surprise or ten he will not like, might just hasten his abdication or something. Undoubtedly will require, in no particular order, several changes of pants, both under and over, large amounts of toilet tissue, several baths, one hell of a lot of room deodorizer and deodorant for him.
Sheela 25th Aug 2014, 11:11 PM edit delete reply

CeCi is supposed to be ID'ed as a companion/pleasure android in order to make Dolly look less suspect.

And as far as secrets buried in CeCi, Dolly probably have two for each and every secret subroutine CeCi has. I would be seriously surprised if Dolly didn't have a few tricks up her sleeve, plus whatever Calliope Taylor managed to sneak into her new body. :)

As for douchebags pants, I'm sure TeeDee will want to set them on fire, so no need to blow them off him first. Besides he will make better noises if he's still wearing them while they burn. :)
Rashala 25th Aug 2014, 4:53 PM edit delete reply

I hereby Dub this combat mode of CEci's The!!!!

Innocent cute pink Kitten Mode!
Stormwind13 25th Aug 2014, 5:49 PM edit delete reply

LOL Rash. That sounds about right.
Haegan2005 25th Aug 2014, 7:49 PM edit delete reply

Anybody really looked at Dari's face in the last panel? I believe someone had said that she had proven herself as not knowing when to shush up? At this point she really can't say anything, but she still has physical options available to her. Like grabbing for a weapon or an attempt to run. She really has nothing left to loose at this point as I am sure she knows she has a bounty on her and who put it on her as well as the likely ending of this delivery.
Sheela 25th Aug 2014, 11:13 PM edit delete reply

Yeah, but Dolly is scary-fast and Dari knows it.
I'm sure she wouldn't be able to get away with it.
Centcomm 25th Aug 2014, 11:26 PM edit delete reply

Yep Dolly is scary fast .. she makes Neo look slow :D
velvetsanity 26th Aug 2014, 8:26 PM edit delete reply

Bah. You know as well as the rest of us that Neo's "speed" was due to a virus he implanted into the Matrix that allocated 90% of available system resources to his actions (which in reality just slowed everyone else down, rather than him being faster) :D
Stormwind13 26th Aug 2014, 5:42 PM edit delete reply

CeCi's mission is to draw attention from Dolly.

Um, CeCi is being HUGELY successful there. I'm not sure ANYONE is paying attention to Dolly right now. Or even the walking corpse, Dari. :-) And CeCi looks cute doing it too.
Haegan2005 26th Aug 2014, 6:47 PM edit delete reply

Your right. Cici even drew attention from them for me, and I am a reader!
JacobJSebastian 26th Aug 2014, 6:55 PM edit delete reply

Suddenly I am curious as to the pronunciation of "Eek!" in Lamod.
