Everybody stare accusingly at Cent. We ran our asses off to build up a decent buffer, and then SOMEONE decided it was fine to take a week off and fart about rather than continuing on. /stink-eye
Centcomm 8th Sep 2014, 11:18 AM edit delete
yes but we still have a buffer :D

There wont be any overt spoilers in DC - but the impact of certain events is already know and has been for years - somehow / someway Humans and Epiphytes reached a agreement.. however.. whats not being talked about is the possibility of a lot of bloodshed.. or.. other result. just because its all hunky dory now does not mean it was smooth sailing :D

Is CeCi being intentionally annoying?
Centcomm 8th Sep 2014, 12:57 AM edit delete reply

She very well might be :D
Sheela 8th Sep 2014, 3:13 AM edit delete reply

CeCi has a mean side to her ?
Oh noes!
Centcomm 8th Sep 2014, 11:18 AM edit delete reply

yesh she does :D
Sheela 8th Sep 2014, 2:45 PM edit delete reply

Well, better her than Ada.
I am reminded of this (warning : icky!) :
"Cross my heart and hope to die."
"Stick a needle in your eye."

Haegan2005 7th Sep 2014, 9:20 PM edit delete reply

Ceci reminds me of a gnome from world of warcraft. She is so cute/sweet she makes my teeth ache.

For some reason I do not think that Dari is really all that fond of our bubbly friend! Though that look that Ceci is being given could possibly be a clue...
Centcomm 8th Sep 2014, 1:00 AM edit delete reply

LOL I think you may understand our girl here :D
Stormwind13 8th Sep 2014, 3:02 AM edit delete reply

The beating that Dari took and then the cheerful banter CeCi is inflicting on her. I mean, she doesn't 'feel' very much like being cheered up.

Damn that chick is green! I don't think she's from around here.

It is an Orion Slave Girl! At least her skin color wasn't 'adjusted' back to normal.

Ceci's bedside manner!
Alicia 7th Sep 2014, 9:48 PM edit delete reply

That's Jeriah for you; he's always thinking with his stomach! But maybe this means he will take Annabelle out to eat? Kind of like a date? Ooooh...! ^.^

Great page, Centcomm! Thanks again! <3
Centcomm 8th Sep 2014, 12:58 AM edit delete reply

Your very welcome Alicia! Thank you as well :D
XMinusOne 7th Sep 2014, 10:52 PM edit delete reply
Ceci is adorable. One forgets she's a lethal killing machine that could take care of any ten of those dudes in the red armor and not get her clothing wrinkled. You almost wish Ms. Broken Jaw would try something so Ceci could take her apart like a chicken at a barbecue. That'd be a waste of organs though.
Centcomm 8th Sep 2014, 12:58 AM edit delete reply

thats our cute cuddly Ceci..
Sheela 8th Sep 2014, 3:19 AM edit delete reply

Not only will she take care of your enemies, she'll also make your breakfast and your lunch and your dinner and load your ship and wash your clothes and clean your guns and sharpen your knives and everything!

And she's also quite excited about all of it. She also thinks Dolly has a comfy lap. :)
Centcomm 8th Sep 2014, 11:22 AM edit delete reply

yeppers Shes a bundle of joy :D
Sheela 8th Sep 2014, 2:47 PM edit delete reply

Curiously ... we haven't actually seen CeCi do any of those things she promised she'd do for Dolly.
Stormwind13 8th Sep 2014, 7:20 PM edit delete reply

Hmmm... Very true, Sheela. Though I guess it is possible that CeCi IS doing those off-screen. :-)
mjkj 8th Sep 2014, 11:33 AM edit delete reply

...and she sees to it that you get enough sleep, eat and drink...

Timotheus 7th Sep 2014, 11:33 PM edit delete reply

I believe Ceci doesn't actually suffer from, but does have to deal with a sever case of compartmental separation within her various brain functions due to CentCom's rather haphazard "stuff it in wherever it could fit" programming methodology. This has resulted in both her watchdog systems failing due to holes in their logic trees to overcome her prime directives (support Dolly), and her inability to use her abilities in any coherent manner. Instead she is slow learning what she has and how to use it as she goes along and this in turn causes strange and unexpected personality shifts when some new elements are suddenly injected into the mix which are then either absorbed and resolved or rejected and turned off by the core personality as needed.
The inside of Ceci's personality must be a very strange place right now and it's a marvel she's a functioning entity.
Centcomm 8th Sep 2014, 12:59 AM edit delete reply

really astute observations .. :D
Sheela 8th Sep 2014, 3:23 AM edit delete reply

Add in the natural ADD of a bubly teenage girl, and you have one hell of a mix.

Well, at least she's not fighting her watchdog so much anymore.
Centcomm 8th Sep 2014, 11:22 AM edit delete reply

thats correct .. her and watchdog are on the same side now that Dr Silver has purged all of watchdogs conflicting Data..
mjkj 7th Sep 2014, 11:49 PM edit delete reply


There is ghosts in the machine...

So, do I need to stop reading DC for LS spoilers?

Oh, CeCi did it - she told dari about her mommy - ...what will come of it?

Timotheus 8th Sep 2014, 12:22 AM edit delete reply

Dolly decided in the 2nd Jul 2014 strip it would be okay to call her mommy occasionally.
mjkj 8th Sep 2014, 3:02 AM edit delete reply

I know that Timotheus, but that was to distract the romans. As for dari I had thought she would maintain a bit more distance than revealing that.
Centcomm 8th Sep 2014, 1:00 AM edit delete reply

no DC wont have any overt spoilers :D so your good :D
mjkj 8th Sep 2014, 3:03 AM edit delete reply

Oh, good. :)

*is relieved*
Sheela 8th Sep 2014, 7:02 AM edit delete reply

Oh my, stink-eyes are being thrown around by Rose ?

I hope Centcomm enjoyed her week off.
Maybe it's that new pony avatar of hers, that makes her a slacker! :D
Centcomm 8th Sep 2014, 11:21 AM edit delete reply

hahah - nope makes me feel more important.. :D
Sheela 8th Sep 2014, 2:48 PM edit delete reply

Lies !

The pony is lazy .. LAZY, i say !
Centcomm 8th Sep 2014, 3:11 PM edit delete reply

Stormwind13 8th Sep 2014, 7:24 PM edit delete reply

Did you say Lazy, or CRAZY Sheela? I know the SECOND one is true. :-)
Sheela 9th Sep 2014, 3:59 PM edit delete reply

Possibly both.
Thomas 8th Sep 2014, 9:12 AM edit delete reply
Anything for you Rose. /stinkeye@centcom

You DESERVE all the stinkeye you get, CentComm. ::Sending stinkeye her way::

Slacker! Rose get out the slave whips. Beat CentComm as needed to keep the buffer healthy! :-D
KarToon12 8th Sep 2014, 10:35 AM edit delete reply

"Hauntings", huh...? Better call Mystery Inc. XD
Centcomm 8th Sep 2014, 11:21 AM edit delete reply

Yep... you guys will understand why if you read Luna Star .. the next few weeks will make it clear :D
Matt Knab 8th Sep 2014, 12:49 PM edit delete reply

"Oh, you can't talk"
Centcomm 8th Sep 2014, 3:12 PM edit delete reply

LOL - yeah Ceci may be pushing the envelope here just a tad..
Rashala 8th Sep 2014, 1:51 PM edit delete reply

Hey now rose I like when Centy needs time to make buffers.

It means Q&A time and I still got tones of Q;s Sent in Waiting to be A'ed ;)
Sheela 8th Sep 2014, 2:49 PM edit delete reply

Well, at least you get yours answered.

Centcomm 8th Sep 2014, 3:13 PM edit delete reply

awww - most of yours were major spoilers or not character directed ... :(
Rashala 9th Sep 2014, 12:43 AM edit delete reply

You gotta admit though mine Do get some rather Entertainign answers. *Cues up a video of Ada running from a baby Murder turd and calling for Tedee's help after hiding up a tree.*
Sheela 9th Sep 2014, 4:01 PM edit delete reply

I'm fairly certain mine weren't *that* spoilerriffic.

Like, the colorblind one was past the 4th wall 'n' everything, so it wouldn't have spoiled anything.
Draginbeard 8th Sep 2014, 2:20 PM edit delete reply

Never really delved into the whole TV Tropes thing. I know a lot of people are nearly addicted to it, but the one time I looked at the site, my head started swimming, so I just left.

Like seeing the Luna series getting a (more direct) nod here.
Centcomm 8th Sep 2014, 3:15 PM edit delete reply

Yeah ive gotten lost there many many times...
but yep - Its why I added this little scene ..
and its fitting that it became a Artifact ship as objects in space tend to not corrode.

Unlike ships in the ocean ..
shinka 8th Sep 2014, 7:46 PM edit delete reply

good work again...
jas 9th Sep 2014, 1:10 PM edit delete reply

Nice LunaStar tie-in! Very interesting interview between those two.

And I don't know why's kind of hard to image Jeriah saying "gonna," even though he's from the Old West. :)
Rashala 9th Sep 2014, 3:23 PM edit delete reply

Well I will ask the obvious Pair of Questions here.

What exactly is an Epiphtyte... And why exactly did they choose to come to Earth of all places surely there were better options out there.
Haegan2005 9th Sep 2014, 5:28 PM edit delete reply

Earth has apples...

In all seriousness though, Judging from what i remember the ship looks like it had taken damage of some sort. Sol was likely the closest system they could get to. Course at this point my theory is all guess work!
highlander55 9th Sep 2014, 6:04 PM edit delete reply

Rashala, go to the top and click on Tech then scroll down to Races. That will explain the Epiphtyte.

As for why Earth. See Comic# 887 Ageless.

Decoding dialogue in 3. 2. 1.: The news report seems to mean that there are new Luna Star pages. Now rush and go read them (they're gonna be awesome as always.)
