And cue the E.T shenanigans as she tries to keep her new cyber-friend a secret. XD

A dialogue! Nayeli would seem to want nothing to do with Kaye, but doesn't want to harm her either. She could shoot her with her bow, but does not, and does warn Kaye that her tribe would kill her. Maybe she can be persuaded to help. But how?

But, but Nayeli isn't wearing a Picklehaube Helmet, chk. :-D And she is much cuter too.
MikeLinPA 28th Jun 2017, 5:14 AM edit delete reply
Cuter than Shultz?
megados 28th Jun 2017, 7:09 AM edit delete reply

Nobody's cuter than Schultz. John Banner did a great job with that character.
Stormwind13 28th Jun 2017, 7:53 AM edit delete reply

While I agree Schultz was funny and did a great job megados, I think our definition of 'cute' might be different. :-D
chk 28th Jun 2017, 3:46 PM edit delete reply

Schultz was adorable in a teddy bear sort of way, but not what I would normally think of as 'cute.'
chk 28th Jun 2017, 9:05 AM edit delete reply

I did not know the helmet was called that and, yes, she is way cuter.
megados 28th Jun 2017, 9:15 AM edit delete reply

In an apples to oranges sort of way, yes. :D (I didn't know what the helmet was called, either.)
JackOfClubs 28th Jun 2017, 11:26 AM edit delete reply

Technically Schultz's helmet is called a Stahlhelm (which basically means "Steel Helment"). The Pickelhaube has a spike on top and is more characteristic of 19th century Prussian helmets. It died out after WWI, although the Nazis might have used the style in some circumstances (parades and such).
Stormwind13 28th Jun 2017, 12:15 PM edit delete reply

I know they used a Picklehaube, sometime in the show. I could have sworn Schultz wore one at some point. I know the character was a WW1 veteran, so a fancy steel pot wasn't impossible. You are right though, looking at pictures he had standard steel helmet (at least most of the time).
chk 28th Jun 2017, 3:38 PM edit delete reply

There was a spiky helmet on Klink's desk than Hogan hung his hat on.
Timotheus 29th Jun 2017, 12:38 AM edit delete reply

The pickelhaube (or spike head cover) was made of boiled leather and steel (brass for officers and guard troops) and was intended to protect the head of the infantry man from over head strikes by halberds and cavalry sabers. Despite its flashy looks it was severely obsolete as military equipment by the start of WWI (as were British cloth caps and kilts and French baggy red pantaloons). The Germans at least caught on real quick and started issuing the stahlhelm to new and replacement troops almost from the start of the war, but never got around to re-equipping the front line troops for economy's sake. They got the new helmets from casualties and the new recruits.
For a short while the US Marine Corp was issued with a white version of the spiked helmet, which was not well received by the troops in the field. You can however find pictures of the presidents band and honor guard wearing them.

Okay. Just faulty memory I guess. Thank you all for correcting me. :-)
mjkj 27th Jun 2017, 10:22 PM edit delete reply

Well, she really is quite mobile for a broken back...

...and if she is there so long already the S&R should be near...

I hope Nayeli will help her - and wonder what adventures she will have...

Great story, DizzasterJuice...

DizzasterJuice 28th Jun 2017, 10:10 AM edit delete reply

"To put it simply..." is polite for "I could tell you what's wrong but you wouldn't understand." So it's something much more complex than a broken back.
mjkj 29th Jun 2017, 12:11 AM edit delete reply

Ah, sorry, I must have not computed the "to put it simply" part while reading...

Thank you, DizzasterJuice.

Sheela 27th Jun 2017, 11:36 PM edit delete reply

I wonder what she will tell her about ?

Maybe the Centcomm Gospels from the Random Access Memory transcription ?
megados 28th Jun 2017, 3:46 PM edit delete reply

Maybe some back story explaining to her how this dichotomy came to be?

Combat Medic Z 28th Jun 2017, 12:44 AM edit delete reply

Well, Nayeli, maybe get a medic to her! Hint, hint. Yeah, as if :p

Anyway, this is great, DizzasterJuice. Really awesome, looking forward to seeing the rest.

Nayeli: NOOOOOOOOOO!!! First it's the stories, then you steal my soul!!

wright1 28th Jun 2017, 9:15 AM edit delete reply
My soul would've been gone at "library of stories". I am a simple creature: ding-ding gets woof-woof out of me <i>every</i> time.
Deoxy 28th Jun 2017, 9:52 AM edit delete reply
As I theorized last page, she has indeed been stuck here quite a while - the lack of farrows or other disturbance of any kind around the ship itself suggested months at least.

But I must agree with someone higher up the comment thread - for having a broken back, she is VERY mobile. Legs appear to working just fine, for instance.

Now, it may be that everything works fine, but it can't take any load, I guess...
Centcomm 28th Jun 2017, 11:56 AM edit delete reply

Actually her legs arent working at all. and she has limited mobility. There is a reason she hasn't climbed or crawled out.
chk 28th Jun 2017, 3:41 PM edit delete reply

How ya doing Cent?
Centcomm 28th Jun 2017, 8:56 PM edit delete reply

doing ok working on pages and getting a buffer back.
Deoxy 29th Jun 2017, 6:24 AM edit delete reply
The change in pose from panel 5 to panel 6 would not be possible for someone whose legs aren't working at all without using their arms to move their legs.

Also, while she's an android and certainly a "broken back" can mean something a bit different, the pose in panel 6, from a human perspective, is not one you would even consider with a serious back injury - it flexes the back rather significantly in a great many places.
gouest 29th Jun 2017, 9:26 AM edit delete reply
umm yes it is.. friend broke her back 10 years ago ( the L5 ) in a car crash,, since then every thing below hips don't move on it's own..
that pose in panel 5,, one leg up , when she turned her hand and rolled her shoulder, the legs fell over because of body alignment .. and her back flexing has become greater because she has to to move every thing below..
Centcomm 29th Jun 2017, 11:10 AM edit delete reply

she has limited strength and mobility. Hows that? Dizz will have to weigh in on this part.
megados 29th Jun 2017, 11:35 AM edit delete reply

Dizz did speak to it some above. The answers, so far, have been fine with me. Since her physiology doesn't quite match up to a human one, his answer about it being complex is a good one, and a lot of further detail might only be useful to repair personnel. I am fine with 'her back is messed up and she can't climb outta there'. :D

It might be a MACCS problem, a structural problem, a servo/actuator/bio-muscle problem, some combination of those, or something completely else. :D
Timotheus 29th Jun 2017, 11:44 AM edit delete reply

We could just say, in the case of an android, while her muscle controls are all functional, the ability of her back to support any sort of sustained movement or stress (such as vertical walking or climbing) is compromised and further damage would cause the loss of muscle control and thereby be undesirable.
(Thus she can change poses but not climb out of holes.)
Deoxy 29th Jun 2017, 12:12 PM edit delete reply
One leg up, turn the body, leg falls over... just in line with the other leg, as if the legs moved together? No, that's not how "falling over" works.

Also, while I'm sorry to hear about your friend, that flexibility in the back came LATER, after the initial trauma had healed. This individual, not having any treatment/service, still has the initial damage. Your friend CERTAINLY wasn't moving like this before being looked at by a doctor, right? Or for quite some time afterwards, based on the serious spinal injuries I've been around.

Hand-wavium is fine (really, I don't mind), but let's not claim it isn't going on.

Oh noes, she spoke to it! And it's already bribing her... Too late for her now: she's lost. And she was such a young one too... Such a tragedy.
Haegan2005 28th Jun 2017, 4:33 PM edit delete reply

Interesting. The dynamic duo have started the next arc.
cattservant 28th Jun 2017, 6:43 PM edit delete reply

Could go any way...
Stormwind13 29th Jun 2017, 4:38 AM edit delete reply

If the EVIL duo was doing this, it would almost assuredly go SIDEWAYS, catt. :-p
