I'm thinking that Cent knows exactly where each of those weapons are on Ophelia and Samanta.

Alt.Text. Kyle's just that kinda guy. Ya know.
robnot 16th Dec 2020, 8:13 AM edit delete reply
maybe not exactly .. but a really good idea.. after stuffing black angles to the eyeballs she would...
DLKmusic 16th Dec 2020, 11:43 AM edit delete reply

I was thinking that Kyle is in his element dealing with the Cassians. and for their part, He repaired the AI for Nova Roma, and he is bringing honor to them by this escort mission.
(and he laughs at feelies jokes, that's an automatic win for her!)

A gossip is not what you’d expect in someone who is high up in intelligence.
megados 16th Dec 2020, 7:27 AM edit delete reply

That might depend on her ability to compartmentalize.

I'm reminded of a security consultant I heard about years ago, with a Twitter account full of incorrect information. To the point that, one of the people I knew who worked with him called him in response to a Twitter update.

"Why are you in California today? We had a meeting scheduled."

Answer: "I'm not in California. Never trust anything I post on Twitter. I'll be there."

huh,,? every S-2 i knew was a gossip.!! they wood tell you one or two little things, then bring the convo back to what they wanted to know..
Oldarmourer 16th Dec 2020, 2:02 PM edit delete reply
That's their job, and the job of most involved in investigations, to turn conversations to what they want to hear about and to drop in a little disinformation if required.
Gossip is one thing, usinggossip is another skill entirely :)

hifranc, the admin is the gossip. The intelligence agent is the one we have seen before and was on briefing team for the Lynn Rescue Mission. What I'm waiting for is when Kyle finds out what they did to his ship getting it back to Nova Illiam so quickly.
Antonious 16th Dec 2020, 9:13 PM edit delete reply

I think that he will forgive them due to the circumstances. The need was well worth the sacrifice.
megados 16th Dec 2020, 5:49 AM edit delete reply

CentComm isn't using a similar amount of caution as she did when Acantha and Noctis arrived. There's no mecha-army! Maybe she realizes this isn't an invasion.

Re: Alt text, He does seem quite a bit more relaxed with them, now.

Given the NT cleanliness level, they wouldn't have had much trouble with the 'rona!

when a head of state arrives unannounced (future Queen, an head of security.) you do a "Show of Force.!" just in case...
these two are jus peons,, (VIP / diplomates yes. but still peons..).
Lurker314 16th Dec 2020, 1:26 PM edit delete reply
Just because there was not a two-year negotiation leading up to the visit does not mean that the arrival was "unannounced". It most certainly WAS announced. If not, that ship on an ICMB trajectory would have experienced an unannounced rapid disassembly before it hit the troposphere.

The "show" of force was for the _comfort_ of the arriving party. Centcom is allowing 0% chance of a bad thing happening to her guest, and this is a demonstration of that intent.
robnot 18th Dec 2020, 8:03 AM edit delete reply
"not a two-year negotiation leading up to the visit" is why it is unannounced .. you calling at 2 in the morning, an showing up 30 min later .. is still unannounced...
MikeLinPA 16th Dec 2020, 6:40 AM edit delete reply
Of course the tits count. They can be the deadliest weapon of all!
robnot 16th Dec 2020, 8:25 AM edit delete reply
hehe,, S.L.T.'s
megados 16th Dec 2020, 10:05 AM edit delete reply

I knew that was coming! 😂
Sheela 16th Dec 2020, 10:39 PM edit delete reply

Stealth Laser Turrets ... confirmed ! 😁

I know that I said I liked how Cella was dressed for this much better last page, but now that I see the full outfit with the leather mini skirt and Thigh-highs...

Am I the only one that is thinking the only thing missing is a police hat and a baton? Was I a bad boy?

ok, I'll get my head out of the gutter now...
sigpig 16th Dec 2020, 12:24 PM edit delete reply

Nah, she just needs the horn-rimmed eyeglasses for the "Hot Librarian" look. "Don't forget to return your books on time, or you could be will be punished!"

Feelie, tits have been weaponized for millennia. Quite aside from the Dr. Evil fem-bots and the aforementioned SLTs, they require no be Super Effective...
Oldarmourer 16th Dec 2020, 2:05 PM edit delete reply
She does like to shop for stylish footwear...thigh high leather (or spandex) boots definitely qualify ;)
robnot 19th Dec 2020, 8:28 AM edit delete reply
going back an looking,, the white pvc dress seems to be the "White Angel." uniform..
so either ' she was off duty, an showed as is.' (unlikely) or as boss, decided to ' dress for success .' ..
KarToon12 16th Dec 2020, 5:17 PM edit delete reply

Nice to see that Twitter and Facebook have survived the centuries. XD
megados 16th Dec 2020, 6:06 PM edit delete reply

Ha! Good catch! I hadn't noticed that. XD
Nystran 17th Dec 2020, 2:59 AM edit delete reply
And the first real-life product placement. Didn't expect that one.
Rashala 16th Dec 2020, 11:41 PM edit delete reply

The more I get to know this cassian the more I keep seeing her and a certain search and rescue bot who rhymes with meedee getti g into crap at a bar together
mjkj 17th Dec 2020, 2:15 AM edit delete reply

Nice banter they have going...

...and Kyle is spilling intelligence information... =P

@alt text: indeed, new friends...

@a/n: (why the sigh, Cent?)
megados 17th Dec 2020, 5:49 AM edit delete reply

"@a/n: (why the sigh, Cent?)"

That's my thought too. (Maybe it's the S.L.T. reference)

Here's a kitty!

CptKerion 17th Dec 2020, 6:23 PM edit delete reply
I have a kitty too, but the picture broke the format, so I'll have to figure out how to insert kitty without breaking the format.
megados 17th Dec 2020, 6:59 PM edit delete reply

If you don't have a program for images, you can use an online resizer such as This One
Centcomm 18th Dec 2020, 9:32 AM edit delete reply

Kitty! .is 1 cozy Looks to be enjoying their nap in a good way
megados 18th Dec 2020, 12:12 PM edit delete reply

Yep! This is Noly. He is a very laid-back kitty who likes his naps!
Gilrandir 19th Dec 2020, 11:32 PM edit delete reply
o/‘ This is my sunshine ... only my sunshine. It makes me sleepy ... in times of day. You’ll never realize ... what I get into ... When they take ... my sunshine ... away. o/‘
megados 20th Dec 2020, 11:34 AM edit delete reply

Haha good one, and pretty much true!

Heard, but not seen, morning's evidence can only suggest.
DLKmusic 21st Dec 2020, 2:09 PM edit delete reply

@Gilrandir: This is... BRILLIANT! and accurate!
Sheela 21st Dec 2020, 5:10 PM edit delete reply

Sometimes smelled as well.
megados 22nd Dec 2020, 6:40 PM edit delete reply

@Sheela, unfortunately sometimes also true. Happily it's mostly predictable where at those times! XD
Gilrandir 21st Dec 2020, 10:47 PM edit delete reply
Thank you, @Megados and @DLKmusic. Kind words and honest feedback are always appreciated.

In the spirit of someone clearly overthinking something intended purely as a visual element, I've been staring at Samanta's tits.

The arches we see above her neckline (the "seams") are exactly where the edges of a set of overlapping "layered" parts would fall, if you had behind them spherical surfaces that they could move an inch or two along the arc of the sphere, if you had some rigid medium (such as steel) and wanted to simulate something like natural movement of boobs with respect to gravity and momentum.

This would mean three-or-so broad, flatt-ish layers with wider-radius concave spherical surface on the proximal side and shorter-radius convex spherical surface on the distal side, no single layer of which is more than an inch and a half or so thick at its thickest point.

Now, if you were weaponizing those, what would they be packed with?

There's a bunch of combat-relevant things that don't care much what shape they're in: plastic explosives, emergency fuel, supercapacitors to power, um, well, everything but particularly SLTs ,,,,

But we haven't even gotten into the possibilities of drones, reactive armor, disc-type projectiles, dish antennas (assuming the exterior shells evert) etc....

Shapely Charges - for breaching doors.
