Judging by her expression in panel one I'd say Connie is feeling serious trepidation for the revised plan. She's going through with it anyway. Brave girl. I hope this decision doesn't cost her too much in the long run. We haven't known her all that long. She's good people and I, for one, don't want to see her hurt.
Centcomm 4th Jul 2013, 9:03 PM edit delete reply

well yeah - shes being asked to do something thats publicly humilating and scary... inhibitors are for dangerous or "sick" androids. not healthy sane ones...
cattservant 5th Jul 2013, 1:00 AM edit delete reply

She probably won't ever appreciate the fact, but having a working collar is going to provide her with a substantial amount of personal safety in the Nova Roman social environment.

Maybe I'm just blind but I fail to see where she actually agreed to do it. To me it looks more like the Major and Mr. Black made the decision for her instead of letting her even have time to think about it.
Centcomm 4th Jul 2013, 10:21 PM edit delete reply

you noticed that did you... good eye. and to be fair Mister Black got annoyed at Marcus and ( *LOOKED* like he ) missed a cue from Connie.

*** Edited - forgot part of it ..
velvetsanity 4th Jul 2013, 11:43 PM edit delete reply

This sort of thing actually tends to happen to me a lot offline. "Not happy" is an understatement and a half. Bewildered, flustered, in over her head...frustration, irritation, annoyance, and possibly anger once she realizes how she got left out of the decision...(if this, primarily directed at herself for letting it happen and not putting her foot down)

Now that I think about it, it tends to happen online a lot, too, particularly when a certain mutual acquaintance is involved.

A demonstration of how 'thin' the android/human differential has become.
Tokyo Rose 5th Jul 2013, 2:13 AM edit delete reply

Black didn't miss a cue.

Nor did Connie, who's learning VERY QUICKLY that what Mister Black says and what Mister Black means are not always the same thing.
cattservant 5th Jul 2013, 2:27 AM edit delete reply

Hail Saint Scepticus!
The layers keep proliferating.
Love it!

Yeah yeah.. I know you use your horns to hold up your halo there.. :P
Sheela 7th Jul 2013, 12:46 PM edit delete reply

And here I thought that was what the hat was supposed to do. :D
Centcomm 7th Jul 2013, 4:52 PM edit delete reply

the hat "hides" the horns >_<

The level of texture you're able to depict is amazing to me.
Centcomm 4th Jul 2013, 9:04 PM edit delete reply

Aww thanks - its something I work really hard at. :D
Rashala 4th Jul 2013, 9:33 PM edit delete reply

all I gotta say is.....She better be getting some SERIOUS Hazard pay for this
Centcomm 4th Jul 2013, 10:23 PM edit delete reply

well considering she got almost 4 years worth of salery "paid" in one shot her "body debt" thats a HELL of a bunch of money... it would have taken Connie 5 years to pay off her Body debt.

Make sure the doctor puts in a deep, mission critical override in the inhibitor.
Centcomm 4th Jul 2013, 10:23 PM edit delete reply

that would probably be wise..

Great story! Interesting characters, and the tech ramifications are fascinating. I'd keep reading, but I've run out of adjectives, I mean pages, for now....
Centcomm 5th Jul 2013, 4:25 PM edit delete reply

why thank you! ( btw you can get a free Comic fury account and subscribe to Datachasers - and make sure you never miss a update :D ) and it helps the comic become more popular ( along with the Top web comics voting ! )

Poor Connie.

Yeah, I sure hope nothing bad will happen to her -- and maybe an emergency shut down of the collar should be build in before they arrive...
Centcomm 5th Jul 2013, 4:25 PM edit delete reply

Im sure Mister Black "has a plan" he always does..
cattservant 5th Jul 2013, 6:52 PM edit delete reply

If not, "He knows a guy!"
cattservant 5th Jul 2013, 4:46 AM edit delete reply

Nine more...

cattservant 5th Jul 2013, 4:35 PM edit delete reply

1000 - 991 = 9
Centcomm 5th Jul 2013, 4:57 PM edit delete reply

oh .. duh .. :P pages.. maybe I should put upn some more of my condensed pages :D drop the page count again >_<
cattservant 5th Jul 2013, 5:04 PM edit delete reply

If you already got 'em, frequency is appreciated!

[Maybe you could divide your Saga into Volumes and cross correlate by date and time*]

*(Probably too much work though.)
KarToon12 5th Jul 2013, 8:44 AM edit delete reply

For some reason, I really like panel one. Her expression just says everything. She'll do it...but she won't like it.
Centcomm 5th Jul 2013, 4:26 PM edit delete reply

grins - I really did like her expression in that one .. its kinda a "ugh really...? " expression.. :D
Draginbeard 5th Jul 2013, 5:15 PM edit delete reply

First and last panel expressions really do stand out for her. Kind of like a little kid with parents talking about what classes she will have to take in summer school this year.
Centcomm 5th Jul 2013, 6:09 PM edit delete reply

she feels VERY out of control right now ..and really unsure what shes gotten into..
Sheela 6th Jul 2013, 7:44 PM edit delete reply

Well, to be fair, she *is* out of control, which is never a good situation, even if it ends up going well.
highlander55 5th Jul 2013, 5:37 PM edit delete reply

She got out of having to put up with her old racist boss but now having to wear an inhibitor collar. Bet she feels like going from the frying pan into the fire.
Centcomm 5th Jul 2013, 6:09 PM edit delete reply

yes - you nailed it exactly
highlander55 5th Jul 2013, 7:35 PM edit delete reply

This will be Connie's baptism of fire so to speak. This will help both Mr Black and Connie to trust each other as the future will probably hold many scenarios that will be dangerous. This starts to help them bond a deeper trust in each other. Course, they both have to survive this first one! 0~0
Centcomm 5th Jul 2013, 10:43 PM edit delete reply

and thats often the hardest trick isnt it ?
cattservant 6th Jul 2013, 4:28 AM edit delete reply

But if they don't it's a moot point...
Sheela 6th Jul 2013, 7:45 PM edit delete reply

Surviving is nice though.
justme 6th Jul 2013, 9:30 PM edit delete reply
choose one or the other not both
mushroomisland 8th Jul 2013, 4:31 PM edit delete reply

Huh. Maybe this'll come back to bite somehow.
Steven-Vincent 4th Oct 2015, 7:35 PM edit delete reply

Why do I have the feeling that this is going to end badly?
