Looks like someone has watched Star wars Episode 4.

I saw "Star Wars:A New Hope" on opening day (Really Stoned!)and have seen it more than 100 times since then. Show true respect and Honor to Carrie Fisher,Princess Leia Organa for all of the joy She gave us all.

@Stormbringer: And don't forget to pay proper homage to the gold chain bikini!

It's good to see Hrist and Astraea again! (and I see Astraea is still quoting stuff - old movies this time instead of games. C'mon, Hrist, lighten up.) :D

Dan, Ivy, and Jordan have friends among the Cassians now; that's a good position to be in!

I might have liked to hear the rest of Ophie's story though! ;)
PaulRein 17th Sep 2018, 11:07 AM edit delete reply
At least Hrist knows what Astraea is doing. According to Astrea i "Refusal" (page 1461), Kali never figured it out (or at least never commented on it).

...she even got the hand gesture right. Nice.

If the Cassians have a 'no-shit-there-I-was' storage bank, I would imagine this is going right up there with the best ones.

Good stuff
DLKmusic 12th Sep 2018, 2:25 AM edit delete reply

RE: Alt text: What do you mean Astraea isn't sniping anyone? Based on on Ophelia's reaction, I would say that was a perfect shot!!!
Sheela 12th Sep 2018, 9:14 AM edit delete reply

I agree, that was a perfectly good snipe. :)

Frankly, I think Ophelia is looking more surprised than I would expect her to be.

Edit :
Alternatively, it's a secret codeword for something.
Something like "Danger, cyberpath" ?
kraznor 13th Sep 2018, 12:35 AM edit delete reply
Ophelie may be shocked to hear Astraea using her normal voice
megados 12th Sep 2018, 9:45 AM edit delete reply

Looks like Ophelia is properly confused! :D

I should know better than to drink coffee while reading this comic!

Okay. That had me moaning and we use a lot of bad quotes!
Just_IDD 12th Sep 2018, 5:51 AM edit delete reply
The proper response when somebody tries this is, "What are you trying to do? Use the force or something?"
Bullwinkle 12th Sep 2018, 6:44 AM edit delete reply
Apparently Ophelia is a practical joker.t looks like Astraea just got some pay back!

Gotta love the Star Wars references. :)
sigpig 12th Sep 2018, 1:40 PM edit delete reply

OK, I now officially like Astraea
DLKmusic 12th Sep 2018, 3:06 PM edit delete reply

I'm right there with you, Sigpig. Although I would probably like her a little less if that particular sense of humor was aimed at me....
megados 12th Sep 2018, 4:55 PM edit delete reply

Are you afraid she will call you a droid, DLKmusic? :D (I already liked her back when she was quoting videogames!)
DLKmusic 12th Sep 2018, 7:46 PM edit delete reply

I'm not afraid she might call me a droid, Megados. I think her comment to meatbags like us is...
"some sacrifices have to be made, for science"

Then start singing Gladys Song...

***cringes in fright***

Ahaha, yes, GLaDOS! "Still Alive" :D

@magados: u have my vote..!!
megados 13th Sep 2018, 5:27 PM edit delete reply

Well, it should rightfully go to DLKmusic. :)
robnot 14th Sep 2018, 9:24 AM edit delete reply
well u quoted " still alive."
DLKmusic 14th Sep 2018, 4:44 PM edit delete reply

@Megados: Actually, I agree with robnot! I didn't even think to post a link, and you were probably the only one that got the reference, thanks to my "DLKspeak", which sometimes requires translation!
megados 14th Sep 2018, 5:54 PM edit delete reply

The reference was great, though! It was a call back to her previous quote! :D
JiggilyJoe 12th Sep 2018, 2:40 PM edit delete reply

Holy Cow! Finally caught up!
I started reading Data Chasers way back in 2009, and had caught up to about where Lynn was first captured, (though the story was a bit different back then).
Then due to life I lost track of the comic (as well as several other comics I used to read, then a couple months ago I re-found it and I have been slowly reading through all the comics again! I'm so glad I found it! Great story and it's so well put together!
Thanks for the great comic Cent!
Boren 12th Sep 2018, 5:55 PM edit delete reply

welcome aboard Joe
megados 12th Sep 2018, 6:58 PM edit delete reply

Glad to see you re-found it! Welcome!
Sheela 12th Sep 2018, 7:18 PM edit delete reply

Welcome back. :)
DLKmusic 12th Sep 2018, 7:27 PM edit delete reply

Welcome to the fan club, JiggityJoe! They have another comic called "Luna Star" that is also a must read, if you haven't read it yet. you can click on the link for it at the bottom of the page!
robnot 13th Sep 2018, 10:08 AM edit delete reply
vel - come.. :)
JiggilyJoe 24th Sep 2018, 2:21 PM edit delete reply

Thanks all! I'll be sure to add Luna Star to my growing list of web comics!
Boren 12th Sep 2018, 5:54 PM edit delete reply

lol and Dan, Ivy and Jordan are now all thinking "holy f***b*llz she really was telling the truth that really is New Romes deathsquad in the circuit"
Rashala 12th Sep 2018, 11:42 PM edit delete reply

A smart ass cassian? I officially like her !
Guest 13th Sep 2018, 9:37 AM edit delete reply
Oh come on. She can't possibly be a big enough fan to be making that joke and not be a big enough fan to have a sister who wouldn't know what she's talking about.

If Ophelia's had to live and work her entire adult life with somebody who'd make that joke, I submit that she'd at least have enough context to get it.
robnot 13th Sep 2018, 10:14 AM edit delete reply
@guest: i know at least one person, who has seen the movie, has it on VHS.. but still has to have the joke explained...
stormbringer77 13th Sep 2018, 9:06 PM edit delete reply

I have all 6 of 9 Star wars movies,the first 3 on VHS,DVD and Blu-Ray,the second 3 on DVD and Blue-Ray and the last 3 on Blu-Ray.I'll Get "Star Wars:Solo" on Blu-Ray when it comes out.Do you think I'm a Star Wars Junkie?Yeah,but I have everything (and I do mean EVERYTHING)on all of the Star Trek shows and movies (on VHS,DVD & Blu-Ray).
robnot 14th Sep 2018, 9:30 AM edit delete reply

Layzor-cat loves ya ! >_<

Sheela 19th Sep 2018, 8:07 AM edit delete reply

What else would a Layzor-Cat watch, than Layzor Dizcs ?!
Siren 13th Sep 2018, 10:19 AM edit delete reply
I LOVE Hrist's armor.
mjkj 19th Sep 2018, 2:39 AM edit delete reply

*lol* that reaction =)
Speedy 19th Sep 2018, 12:47 PM edit delete reply
How could Astraea not be a Star Wars fanatic? She literally IS a Death Star. I mean, what else would you call an assassin whose name means "star-maiden" or "starry night"?
PaulRein 21st Sep 2018, 3:32 AM edit delete reply
I just realized how utterly appropriate it is that Hrist, of all the cassians, comes to pick up Ophelia after she (in a sense) died on the battlefield!
