Any odds on the Bureaucrat that has been silenced having seven kinds of epileptic fits right now? Wonder if harmony has any on board systems that will provide stealth, defense, offense and forensic capabilities? Bet 3C would love to get her grimy little robotic hands on Harmony.

The odds are to unfavorable for betting about the Bureaucrat's kind and number of epileptic disfunctions.

I would have liked "fireflies" better.

I miss Firefly... :(

Harmony is a nice name. So peaceful and caring. Let's see what Harmony can do when being attacked.
Now we need to see who Centcom chooses to accompany Andrea and Harmony. Personally I'd like to see Centcom ask Noctis to lend Ophelia for this operation.

I don't understand why people think that C3 has any pull with Androids specifically designed as the Protectors of the Nova Roman lineage. Also I cannot see C3 wanting to involve an outside, uninvolved third party in internal affairs. Especially a foreign diplomats' personal staff. To make matters worse those Nova Roma staff's specific function is to act outside the law.

C3 wants to resolve the black-eye that someone has given New Troy and by extension Itself through the execution of this attack in the most expedient and quiet manner. Involving outside parties does not accomplish nor increase the likelihood of a successful completion.

The one thing I do wish is that CentCom dismissed the administrator to other duties prior to the assignment of Harmony. I'd be perfectly happy if that were retconned into an earlier page since her model was not in any frame after the access upgraded page on july 6.

It would make sense for Centcom to ask. As, IMO, this may have a connection to the golden antagonists that we've seen prior. And Ophelia has some experience with them. Also it might tie into the assassination/kidnapping attempt after Acinthia after her surgery.

Where do you see a connection? Both groups are willing to kill and steal, but are entirely different in their methods, tools, agents, and targets.
Haegan2005 31st Jul 2022, 2:57 PM edit delete reply

I agree, I do not see a relationship between the two.

I don't know what a 'doit' is, but the page looks good to me.
megados 27th Jul 2022, 4:56 AM edit delete reply

Yes, this exactly.

I like how Andrea's attempt at pronunciation is presented.

Harmony will aid and give a link . . . So the link will also allow them to keep tabs on Andrea?
Rocket Fueled 28th Jul 2022, 8:17 AM edit delete reply

Agreed! I love how Andrea's failed attempt to pronounce the drone's name was depicted, I thought it conveyed the sense of it perfectly. I also love the fact that she tried.
Microraptor 27th Jul 2022, 5:53 AM edit delete reply

Even though Valerian utterly fails to pronounce Harmony's actual name, the fact that she at least tries should be appreciated! :-D
Just_IDD 27th Jul 2022, 7:26 AM edit delete reply
Maybe by the end of this she'll be able to pronounce its given name properly!
Centcomm 28th Jul 2022, 4:59 AM edit delete reply

sadly Andria doesnt have the right biology
Some Ed 27th Jul 2022, 7:10 AM edit delete reply
Yes, I have been owned by a cat. Since he wouldn't respond to a name any better if it had been given to him at birth, he responds to the new name we gave him exactly as well as if it had been given to him at birth.

But I feel like Harmony's going to respond more Harmoniously to their new name than my cat does.

Either Tokyo Rose created the ultimate pun, or she didn't even know she did it.

A remote.
Named "Harmony".

Was it made by Logitech? Because I use Logitech Harmony remotes for my home theatre setups... lol
Just_IDD 27th Jul 2022, 8:16 AM edit delete reply
!!! LogiTech is so called because LogicalTechnology is not a trademarkable name (and is too long for the ADD crowd. This remote is logical technology if you have psionics and in itself, as an AI, is Logical.

I hope Harmony and Andrea will solve the case soon...
Lost Dutchman 27th Jul 2022, 9:03 AM edit delete reply
Call me old school...
But I would have named Harmony "Bit" from the old Tron movie.
jawbone 27th Jul 2022, 10:10 AM edit delete reply

"BLT" or "BITBLT" would be geekier - see <>.
Centcomm 27th Jul 2022, 2:34 PM edit delete reply

in the original script it was named "Frank"
Haegan2005 27th Jul 2022, 5:52 PM edit delete reply

Indeed it was. Rose dealing with an older Andrea, the RP is dealing with a younger Andrea. There are a lot of differences between the two, including experience, and one is more willing to take crap from people.

I do not at all disapprove of Roses take on Andrea.
Deanatay 6th Aug 2022, 6:24 AM edit delete reply
... I woulda stuck with Frank, TBF. It's a MUCH funnier name for a floating telepathic sphere.
Centcomm 6th Aug 2022, 11:03 AM edit delete reply

editor said no :D
KarToon12 27th Jul 2022, 2:01 PM edit delete reply

She basically got her own Luna-P from Sailor Moon. :)

Yeah language is always going to be a serious stumbling block in communications with othe intelligent species, as we may lack common reference points to be able to accurately convey what whe are attempting to communicate.
Lurker314 29th Jul 2022, 7:55 PM edit delete reply
That's true between individual members of the same family already... :D
Mark_L_A 28th Jul 2022, 5:25 PM edit delete reply

I think there is a possibility Andrea has just gained a new permanent partner.

As for the doits, I find I like the effect on the page.
Haegan2005 28th Jul 2022, 8:43 PM edit delete reply

I would add that harmony can now link with Andrea's thoughts and pull memories that she deliberately displays for it.

I will also note that it did not have any issues with this. Andrea is thinking that she has a really simple mind as an explanation.
Thracecius 3rd Aug 2022, 11:13 AM edit delete reply

Wow, if I hadn't read the author's note about the graphics issues, I would have kept thinking that Harmony was generating those sparkles, which have a nice effect on the scene for me, especially with regards to Andrea. I also love how respectful Andrea is in asking the AI about the name and choosing Harmony. The choice of name immediately sparked an association with Serenity (ship from TV show Firefly), even though there is no real reason for it beyond the similarity in meanings, which further endears me to her.

I've been thinking this ever since she was introduced, but I think Andrea is probably the most attractive woman (to me anyway) in the DC Universe so far, and that is really saying something considering how much I like many of the ladies (Galina and Connie, for instance), both human and android. Maybe some of it has to do with her eyes, I'm not sure, but what we've seen of her personality and principles so far really resonate with me. Sure, she's definitely good looking and she seems to have a kind face, but it is most definitely more than just her looks. Thanks for sharing her. :)
