I must say they do make a good looking team and a couple too! As for Tricia, she must have lost to him playing strip poker!
Centcomm 22nd Jul 2013, 6:30 PM edit delete reply

im sure it was .. interesing :D
Stormwind13 22nd Jul 2013, 6:36 PM edit delete reply

Remains to be seen if they make couple at all; however, I predict interesting times ahead for the two of them. :-)
Centcomm 22nd Jul 2013, 6:49 PM edit delete reply

i think you are correct
cattservant 22nd Jul 2013, 6:29 PM edit delete reply

The game's afoot! Wonder what could have stirred up the Nova Romans, hmmn?

[Perhaps a certain Emperor is uncertain. Not to mention sore and cranky after his latest fitness examination!]
Centcomm 22nd Jul 2013, 6:30 PM edit delete reply

Gee I wonder .. :D
Stormwind13 22nd Jul 2013, 6:40 PM edit delete reply

That Darn Cat got out... and is howling at the full moon, so they decided to take care of it ONCE and for all! :-D Cat neutering done with high explosives!
Centcomm 22nd Jul 2013, 6:49 PM edit delete reply

oh yes the only way to make sure..
cattservant 22nd Jul 2013, 6:50 PM edit delete reply

Yeah, but just like those mice with the bell, you've got to get someone to place the charge.
Stormwind13 22nd Jul 2013, 6:52 PM edit delete reply

No, no... That is what ROCKETS are for! :-D
highlander55 22nd Jul 2013, 6:32 PM edit delete reply

Your Vote for DC and LS is missing.
Centcomm 22nd Jul 2013, 6:45 PM edit delete reply

its a TWC issue, im showing it - but for a while it was missing ...
cattservant 22nd Jul 2013, 6:47 PM edit delete reply

It just came back. Must be lunar influences!
Rashala 22nd Jul 2013, 6:34 PM edit delete reply

a dropped lolly...yeah HE is Coocoo Enough To just do that
Centcomm 22nd Jul 2013, 6:48 PM edit delete reply

yep he is indeed :D

Don B. 22nd Jul 2013, 6:57 PM edit delete reply
Connie certainly seems to be able to keep her cool even when she has major misgivings about something. A product of Supervisor Tillermans boot camp maybe?
Stormwind13 22nd Jul 2013, 7:04 PM edit delete reply

Quite possibly the case, Don. Already dealt with some level of the crap, so it is old hat. :-) Wait and see what happens when someone starts shooting to how she handles that.
cattservant 22nd Jul 2013, 7:05 PM edit delete reply

At least half a can of Arctic Freeze too.
Stormwind13 22nd Jul 2013, 7:08 PM edit delete reply

Are you sure that will keep her cool? I thought it was more ANTI-freeze myself. :-D
Stormwind13 22nd Jul 2013, 7:02 PM edit delete reply

Well I would say Tricia knows Mr. Black pretty well. I mean she knows that he didn't get the transport any CONVENTIONAL way. And knows he is good at cards too. :-D

Mr. Black made SOME kind of impression in Atha (maybe on Tricia too?)... Even if the charges have been dropped. :-D
cattservant 22nd Jul 2013, 7:08 PM edit delete reply

You could stretch it a bit and say he does have an 'old pink haired aunt'. (Or not!)
Stormwind13 22nd Jul 2013, 7:10 PM edit delete reply

I'm not sure if that might be enough to cause CentComm to short out and go defunct! Mr. Black as a near relation? O.O
cattservant 22nd Jul 2013, 7:24 PM edit delete reply

They are certainly followers of the same school of practical situational ethics!
highlander55 22nd Jul 2013, 7:10 PM edit delete reply

Or an Aunt Rose. :)
velvetsanity 23rd Jul 2013, 6:43 AM edit delete reply

Pfft. It's a subtle nod to Lando Calrissian :D
highlander55 22nd Jul 2013, 7:07 PM edit delete reply

Got to vote this time.
CyberSkull 22nd Jul 2013, 10:26 PM edit delete reply

I'm surprised Tricia isn't in a flight suit.
cattservant 23rd Jul 2013, 1:11 PM edit delete reply

Maybe Ahta is running on a tight budget these days.
Stormwind13 23rd Jul 2013, 1:31 PM edit delete reply

I get the feeling they might be militia. They have other jobs in Atha, but when things heat up they rotate who is doing guard duty. Most of those wouldn't have uniforms, they would wear whatever they had.

Once upon a time militias were REAL common. What is it they say, what once was old is new again? :-)
Centcomm 23rd Jul 2013, 1:49 PM edit delete reply

you would be correct in the "militia" term.. Atha has no formal army..
cattservant 23rd Jul 2013, 1:54 PM edit delete reply

Contributing Citizens of their City-State!
CyberSkull 23rd Jul 2013, 10:12 PM edit delete reply

I'm not saying a uniform is needed, but I wouldn't fly up there without something to keep my skin from freezing and my blood from boiling…
mjkj 23rd Jul 2013, 12:39 AM edit delete reply

Poor Auntie... :P

Quite the reputation he has...

So Rome is on the move...

Do they plan a preemptive strike? or just securing there borders from a Troy retaliation strike?
cattservant 23rd Jul 2013, 1:17 PM edit delete reply

Probably taking defensive measures. I'm not sure Nova Roma has enough military resources to go on the offensive.
Stormwind13 23rd Jul 2013, 1:21 PM edit delete reply

Not yet, Cat. That is one of the things d!ckhead wants to change by putting the squeeze on CentComm through the Taylors. :-p
cattservant 23rd Jul 2013, 1:58 PM edit delete reply

Indeed! The motivating impulse behind this "Epic Story of Action and Intrigue!!!"
Dragonrider 23rd Jul 2013, 5:04 AM edit delete reply

OK here we go, our resident "Ms. Right Now" is suddenly finding some of "Mr. Right's" ex's. (Not all Ex's Live in Texas). Wonder if androids have a little green jealousy android bug?
cattservant 23rd Jul 2013, 8:02 AM edit delete reply

Connie seems to be a practical person. She probably consider any Ex's* as potential intelligence resources.

*(Ex's might imply more to those relationships than actually took place. I suspect Mr. Black has been very careful about his 'health' throughout his career.)
Stormwind13 23rd Jul 2013, 1:40 PM edit delete reply

I got wondering the opposite Dragon. I don't see Mr. Black as a celibate monk or anything, so he probably has some friendly lasses scattered about the land. I wonder if any of said lasses will object to the beautiful Connie being on-board with Mr. Black. :-D

I also have to wonder if there are any LITTLE Blacks running around (whichever flavor they might be). I mean, he is pretty wise now, but what mistakes did he make 15 or 20 years ago to MAKE him that wise? :-D

I expect there are going to be some bumps in the road for those two. That is if they even DO become a couple.
Dragonrider 23rd Jul 2013, 3:10 PM edit delete reply

I have a feeling that besides the home entertainment center she got with her last upgrade she also may have a bodyguard package or an upgraded self defense module no one knows about so the ex's might want to move to Texas if they rile the young lady.
Centcomm 23rd Jul 2013, 3:16 PM edit delete reply

at last a question / statement i can answer.. Connie has a medium duty frame and muscularity. overall shes actually rather standard in the tech dept.
cattservant 23rd Jul 2013, 3:59 PM edit delete reply

<were you getting desperate?>
Dragonrider 23rd Jul 2013, 6:17 PM edit delete reply

I note you did not deny anything about a weapons capability skill set, by self defense I was referring to the ability to target shoot to kill in less than 1 second.
Centcomm 23rd Jul 2013, 6:30 PM edit delete reply

Her skill with firearms is pretty average as well :D combat isnt her strong suit..
Draginbeard 23rd Jul 2013, 5:46 AM edit delete reply

Inherited from dear old auntie...who still flies stealth Ops, and teaches corporate counter intrusion protocol classes in her spare time.
Marcus Ramesy 23rd Jul 2013, 7:06 AM edit delete reply

Dragon, I see we have the same aunt.... she was a wonderful person.. taught us to rig a fusion grenade to be used as power pack for a depleted las rifle..... always had to be on your toes around her.. never knew when she was going to try to kill us..
Centcomm 23rd Jul 2013, 11:22 AM edit delete reply

if he has a aunt im betting shes just as sharp as he is... :D
Sheela 24th Jul 2013, 7:46 PM edit delete reply

Pfft ... his aunt is the kind of person that would try to sell her own gravestone as only "slightly used" ... after she died.
KarToon12 23rd Jul 2013, 6:40 AM edit delete reply

I can just imagine search teams sweeping the area, saying, "Negative. The tootsie pop has NOT been found." XDXD
cattservant 23rd Jul 2013, 7:51 AM edit delete reply

Somewhere out there
A scythe lizard
Has a happy
Mouth and tummy!
Dragonrider 23rd Jul 2013, 3:02 PM edit delete reply

How many licks to the center of a Tootsie Pop?
cattservant 23rd Jul 2013, 3:08 PM edit delete reply

Seems like they'd be the crunchy types and eat the stick too!
Stormwind13 23rd Jul 2013, 1:42 PM edit delete reply

I had to laugh SO hard at that, KarToon. :-D
Centcomm 23rd Jul 2013, 1:50 PM edit delete reply

so did i .. so did I :D
Caley Tibbittz Collopy 23rd Jul 2013, 10:44 AM edit delete reply

Love that "card game" bit. :)

Been too busy to catch up lately, so with a tiny bit of free time I just got to burn through your last month of updates, and they're all REALLY great. Well worth the wait.
Centcomm 23rd Jul 2013, 11:22 AM edit delete reply

*bows* thank you very very much! MUCH!
Stormwind13 23rd Jul 2013, 1:43 PM edit delete reply

Down to 61, that is the best I have seen it!!! Congrats CentComm. We are TRYING to break you into the 50's. :-)
Centcomm 23rd Jul 2013, 1:50 PM edit delete reply

Oh my god I know .. 61 whoooooaaaa :D
mjkj 23rd Jul 2013, 3:38 PM edit delete reply

Yup, and only 40 votes to rank 60...

And Luna Star is at a stable 92 with 5 votes to 91 ... (but also 5 votes to 93...)
Centcomm 23rd Jul 2013, 5:01 PM edit delete reply

Im really surprised LS is as popular as it is.. :D considering how depressing it is at times..
cattservant 23rd Jul 2013, 6:01 PM edit delete reply

(Secret Soap Opera Seers!)
antrik 22nd May 2017, 5:15 PM edit delete reply
Heh, "all those charges were dismissed"... And I'm sure there were TOTALLY BASELESS in the first place ;-)
