I know people like that.

Hell, I *am* people like that.
Centcomm 9th Jun 2013, 6:22 PM edit delete reply

nah your not that bad...
velvetsanity 9th Jun 2013, 6:15 PM edit delete reply

Now just who might that whiny crybaby in the background be? I wonder.... :D
Centcomm 9th Jun 2013, 6:22 PM edit delete reply

yessss... I wonder..

Dr. Veronica Silver...the girl has issues. She's mad and isn't going to suffer alone or in silence. Not short of being restrained and gagged where did I put those +3 Earplugs of Relieved Silence?
Centcomm 9th Jun 2013, 6:54 PM edit delete reply

I love the way you put that...
Dragonrider 10th Jun 2013, 6:05 AM edit delete reply

Earplugs hell she's an android just reprogram her with a silence is golden routine.
Centcomm 10th Jun 2013, 7:02 AM edit delete reply

At Dragonrider.. Dr. Silver is human - shes not a andriod. also its almost impossable to "re-program" a andriod once the Synth-brain is fully online.
Don B. 10th Jun 2013, 11:47 AM edit delete reply
Even though I know Veronica is human, it took me a little while to actually believe it. For some reason, she seems to be more like an android...can't figure out why. I will say that if she had Fran Dreschers voice, I would be hard pressed not to shoot her when she gets going like this. Oh God! Please make it stop! MAKE IT STOP!!!
Antonious 9th Jun 2013, 7:45 PM edit delete reply
I took a second look at the TWC incentive and realized it is sort of the same moment in time from a more revealing perspective. Even without dialogue in it I can still hear that Fran Drescher voice. *starts passing out noise cancelling earplugs*
Centcomm 9th Jun 2013, 7:48 PM edit delete reply

hehe thats actually a preview pic ( or a discarded Frame :D ) Fran Drescher huh?
she was somewhat modeled after Zoey Drescher amusingly enough ..
cattservant 9th Jun 2013, 6:52 PM edit delete reply

Her highly polished personality tarnishes rather quickly it seems.
Sheela 10th Jun 2013, 5:25 AM edit delete reply

Polished personalities often need a lot of constant upkeep or they crack .. loudly and with much whining. :D

Forgive my ignorance but, TWC? Tell me it doesn't stand for Time Warner Cable!!
Centcomm 9th Jun 2013, 6:30 PM edit delete reply

haha "TWC" or Top Web Comics its a list of web comics it helps get datachasers noticed. its currently ranked at 80 ( there are several thousand comics in the list.. ) the blue TWC button takes you there also you get a preview pic or a special incentive pic and it costs nothing :D
highlander55 9th Jun 2013, 7:01 PM edit delete reply

Ok, voted on TWC.. ( I feel like such a n00b) :)
Centcomm 9th Jun 2013, 7:05 PM edit delete reply

hehe - thank you ! :D
lalverson 9th Jun 2013, 6:44 PM edit delete reply
ok, I iz a little lost here. Who is this? and what are they doing?
Centcomm 9th Jun 2013, 6:51 PM edit delete reply

this is the "offical" New troy rescue team.. from a ways back in the comic.
cattservant 9th Jun 2013, 7:07 PM edit delete reply

An 'Update; page 2' by Centcomm and Tokyo Rose would be very nice and useful.
Centcomm 9th Jun 2013, 7:13 PM edit delete reply

noted :D
cattservant 9th Jun 2013, 6:55 PM edit delete reply

Time to take a 'quick' reread of the archives. Just the thing for reorientation!

LurkerAbove 10th Jun 2013, 3:31 AM edit delete reply
You might want to look at
(or search for "Silver")
cattservant 9th Jun 2013, 6:47 PM edit delete reply

No wonder Major Ramsey remembers his previous expedition with her so vividly.

[At least Connie has practical experience dealing with human BS!]

("...less than a hundred miles away..."
Wonder how Dolly would like her cards if she knew that bit of information?)
Centcomm 9th Jun 2013, 6:52 PM edit delete reply

at least connie doesnt have to put up with a hostile supervisor that doesnt like andriods..
Don B. 9th Jun 2013, 7:35 PM edit delete reply
Is Connie the one that was working in the docks with that asshole supervisor? If not, where did she come from? I'm kinda drawing a blank here.
Centcomm 9th Jun 2013, 7:47 PM edit delete reply

Yes she is .. Black bought her contract as part of his Hire package theres a mini story in the blog about it.. but she worked for NTTA New troy transit authority before this..
cattservant 9th Jun 2013, 7:54 PM edit delete reply

That's her! She's made a major upgrade in her career path.
cattservant 10th Jun 2013, 9:21 AM edit delete reply

Well, it did seem like he appreciated parts of them...
Marcus Ramesy 9th Jun 2013, 9:41 PM edit delete reply

you have NO idea cat.... no idea at all.....
Sheela 10th Jun 2013, 5:26 AM edit delete reply

Oh, ? OH!

What part was upgraded ?
Don B. 10th Jun 2013, 11:58 AM edit delete reply
I thought that Black might do something for Connie. I'm glad to see that he bought her contract.He gets a loyal employee...she gets respect from her boss. It's nice when the right thing to do isn't based on some kind of personal sacrifice or hardship. Well, that idiot of a supervisor needs some personal hardship, but that is all his own doing.
Centcomm 10th Jun 2013, 12:04 PM edit delete reply

actually Black "bought her contract" then gave it to her. in simple terms he paid off her body debt. meaning shes no longer bound by it. :D shes with black as a equal and not a "contracted" Andriod.
Don B. 10th Jun 2013, 12:31 PM edit delete reply
Even better. Traveling the wastes would require having a trusted ally with you (unless of course, you're a gutter). Having seen him stand up for Connie, I'm not surprised he did this. This is the kind of fella I can respect, 'cause y'know...ethics, integrity and all that.
Centcomm 10th Jun 2013, 12:34 PM edit delete reply

if you want a deeper look at Mister Black check out the blog there are 3 storys ( shorts presented in "short story" format with Mister black we didnt include this as part of the comic because of the timeing issue..
these are the entrys

Stealing What's Yours by Tokyo Rose
Gearing Up by Tokyo Rose

Rashala 9th Jun 2013, 7:16 PM edit delete reply

She is SOOOOO lucky I or tedee are not flying that thing..

*looks for Switch labled Seal passenger compartment and shut off airflow.....Or the Jetison seat button with her seat number.
Centcomm 9th Jun 2013, 7:24 PM edit delete reply

hahah they cant do that .. shes rather important >_< litterally no one else has her skills..
Rashala 10th Jun 2013, 4:26 PM edit delete reply

How about *temporary Cryonic freeze.* You know Freeze her and dethaw her when they get there
Centcomm 10th Jun 2013, 5:00 PM edit delete reply

because thats dangerous even under the best of conditions >_< and is never done lightly..
Stormwind13 15th Jul 2013, 2:15 PM edit delete reply

Cone of silence!!! :-D
cattservant 9th Jun 2013, 7:16 PM edit delete reply

Ramsey or Ramesy
What do his dog tags say?

[I may have asked before, or not.]
Centcomm 9th Jun 2013, 7:23 PM edit delete reply

the second .. Ramesy..
LooeyQ 9th Jun 2013, 7:56 PM edit delete reply

Geez, someone needs to shut mr. Scientist up! Anything is better then trapped in a room with his babbling butt! Lol!
velvetsanity 9th Jun 2013, 9:13 PM edit delete reply

Be glad Dr. Veronica Silver didn't hear you referring to her as a he, or none of us would ever hear the end of it :P
Marcus Ramesy 9th Jun 2013, 9:47 PM edit delete reply

Dr. Silver has another talent.. it that is.. a sliver tong to rip you apart with.. verbal... and legally... there are very very few who can stand up to the scathing remarks that she makes... and even fewer who can dish it back out.
Don B. 10th Jun 2013, 12:08 PM edit delete reply
I'd bet good money on Acantha shutting her up. Probably in less than ten seconds. If and when Dex gets dealt with, I suspect that young lady will become something of a force of nature. After all, you don't survive that murdering bastard of a brother of hers by being weak willed. She didn't want a gun because she was scared of guns, she didn't want a gun because she doesn't trust herself not to use it. Can't say as I blame her for that.
Centcomm 10th Jun 2013, 12:16 PM edit delete reply

you have Acantha pretty well pinned down. There is very little Acantha "actually" fears. She "Respects: the people she needs to - including her crazy brother. but she never forgets ( well except once ) that he is psychotic she just didnt realize HOW far he has gone on the crazy train.
LooeyQ 10th Jun 2013, 5:06 AM edit delete reply

Oh whoops, mrs. Scientist I mean! :D
plymayer 9th Jun 2013, 9:20 PM edit delete reply

I've been to sea with folks like this who ramble on and on and on....
ge2org 10th Jun 2013, 12:17 AM edit delete reply

It was bad enough to read that... let alone hear it (poor whoever she is)
Centcomm 10th Jun 2013, 5:09 AM edit delete reply

and she goes on.. and ON .. and ON!

( actually its kinda fun to listen to when she really gets going just ask marcus.. )
Sheela 10th Jun 2013, 5:29 AM edit delete reply

She's an Energizer Bunny ! :D

I bet she's great in bed then, and can wear out two men at the same time, one by having sex and the other she can talk to death.

See ? Multitasking ! XD
Centcomm 10th Jun 2013, 7:04 AM edit delete reply

hah! Dr. Silvers bedroom activitys are *ah hem* not something Im allowed to discuss :P
Sheela 10th Jun 2013, 7:58 AM edit delete reply

Oh ?
She talks both of them to death ?

Dang, that's pretty sad.
Speedy 11th Nov 2016, 12:57 AM edit delete reply
If earlier rumors are any indication, her favorite song might be "Domo Arigato, Mister Roboto"
cattservant 10th Jun 2013, 9:25 AM edit delete reply

There was some rumor about mechanisms if I recall.
CyberSkull 10th Jun 2013, 5:04 AM edit delete reply

Humanity and the AIs are truly barbaric. I mean, an interocitor that can't tune itself? No wonder they haven't gotten away from their star yet.
Centcomm 10th Jun 2013, 5:08 AM edit delete reply

Rose was wondering if anyone would get that joke :D good job ! :D
Sheela 10th Jun 2013, 5:31 AM edit delete reply

Heck, at least they could network it and have the AI's tune them remotely.

Barbaric indeed.
Dragonrider 10th Jun 2013, 6:13 AM edit delete reply

Someone should make Silver work for a soup kitchen in the wastes where she has no contact with anything that isn't human. Also if she's so damn smart why doesn't Centcomm just assimilate her?
Centcomm 10th Jun 2013, 7:05 AM edit delete reply

again - Silver isnt a Andriod shes a human. and actually when Doctor Silver is in her element shes actually very pleasent to be around.. shes a bit like Dr "House" Or a bit more irritable Tony Stark.. ( actually she could proably give Tony Stark pointers >_< shes THAT smart.
Hornet 10th Jun 2013, 6:36 AM edit delete reply
Okay where's the duct tape and bailing wire?
Centcomm 10th Jun 2013, 7:06 AM edit delete reply

under the counter and to the left in the emergency kit.
Dragonrider 10th Jun 2013, 10:52 AM edit delete reply

Does said kit contain a scalpel for tongue removal? If not let our favorite human disliking android used her for sparing practice.
Centcomm 10th Jun 2013, 11:01 AM edit delete reply

hahah - we shall see.. Dr Silver and TD have argued in the past... :D but TD kinda owes her for saving Ada.. remember?
KarToon12 10th Jun 2013, 7:30 AM edit delete reply

I'm guessing the whiner is Dr. McCoy, due to the "I'm a doctor, not a" line. XDXD
Centcomm 10th Jun 2013, 9:29 AM edit delete reply

that seems to be a running joke in the comic .. being a star trek fan has its downsides.. :D
cattservant 10th Jun 2013, 9:12 AM edit delete reply

Centcomm 10th Jun 2013, 9:13 AM edit delete reply

O_O wow thats pretty darn cool!
cattservant 10th Jun 2013, 9:46 AM edit delete reply

As our heroes pass by scenic downtown Joleet, a thought occurs to me;
Did Centcomm ever impart the possibility that Dolly and Company might not show up for the party?
Seems like that might be an unneeded complication in an already touchy operation.
Centcomm 10th Jun 2013, 11:02 AM edit delete reply

that will be handled . the location is NOT a accedent .. Ill put it that way..
velvetsanity 11th Jun 2013, 6:17 AM edit delete reply

That means two possibilities: either it was an ideal distraction point due to the presence of Dari, or it was simply a conveniently located pickup point. There also exists the possibility of it being both at once.

CentComm obviously doesn't know Dolly very well :D
Centcomm 11th Jun 2013, 6:20 AM edit delete reply

one Joleet is on the optimumn flight path due to its location. more I cant say at this point. >_<
velvetsanity 11th Jun 2013, 6:15 AM edit delete reply

"Listen. You listen to me. You see that city over there? THAT'S where I'm supposed to be. Not down here with the dogs, and the garbage, and the freaking last month's newspapers blowing back and forth. I've had it with them, I've had it with you, I've had it with ALL THIS - I want ROOM SERVICE! I want the club sandwich, I want the cold Mexican beer, I want a $10,000-a-night hooker! I want my shirts laundered... like they do... at the Imperial Hotel... in Tokyo."

Is this about what they've been listening to ever since leaving NT? :P
Centcomm 11th Jun 2013, 6:21 AM edit delete reply

yes.. you got it totally.. :D
Jonboy 31st Oct 2013, 6:29 PM edit delete reply
Wow, professor, you made this station wagon out of coconuts and bamboo?
Centcomm 31st Oct 2013, 6:32 PM edit delete reply

LOL - best comment evar :D and welcome to the insanity :D

"strip down a dodgy turbo-encabulator"

... how did I miss this ?
That is bloody hilarious, though it begs the question, would that be a Chrysler or a Rockwell turbo-encabulator ?
