That's her story and she's stickin to it

yep :D
Sheela 31st Jan 2014, 9:59 AM edit delete reply

Well, it seems plausible, so she probably has no reason to lie on this one.

And while Calliope will probably forgive her for this one, still, she's going to be annoyed with Centcomm. It's never a nice thing to find someone close to you have been lying to you, even by omission.

Behold the death glare in the second panel.
Dragonrider 30th Jan 2014, 9:03 PM edit delete reply

I have a feeling that in the last panel her hand is on a reset button. Also observe the expression on Krystal's face in panel 3. Almost says "Lie some more bitch."
Centcomm 30th Jan 2014, 9:04 PM edit delete reply

CentComm's eyes in the last panel say "It's easier to ask forgiveness than permission" or something along those lines

Unbeknownst to anyone, Krystal's watching an episode of "Lost in Translation", and it just ended on a cliffhanger. Thus the distracted glare. Those bastards!

Sheela 31st Jan 2014, 10:02 AM edit delete reply

It's going to be hard for Calliope to trust Centcomm from now on. She might, but it's gonna be difficult.

Centcomm may have shot herself a bit in her foot.
Stormwind13 31st Jan 2014, 5:02 PM edit delete reply

Calliope will just make sure that her questions are EXTREMELY PERCISE, Sheela. No wiggle room for CentComm to try and deceive her again. I think Calliope isn't as breathing fire upset as many people seem to think. :-)

Quote, A hand picked team of operatives has been dispatched to rescue Lynn" Yeah Right, a smuggler with a loyalty to money, a woman who wouldn't spit on Calliope if she was on fire and hates the Military guy in supposed charge as soon as her basketball droids take off Kali and Marcus are going to have a grand time skeet shooting, a psychotic S&R Droid who wants to kill the Military Muscle, The Military Muscle who is about a subtle at undercover work as Max Smart great for fire fights but this is undercover, A sane S&R Droid who will actually try to do something but with the dysfunctional team who knows what happens also we have the token open Droid that is in love with the smuggler and will do whatever she thinks he wants. Lee Marvin had a better chance with the Dirty Dozen.

Believe it or not, I not only agree with your analysis of our Happy Band (tm), I'm counting on it. What do you think the Independent Trader (tm) is going to be doing while the Military Muscle (tm), the Insane S&R Droid (tm), the Sane S&R Droid (tm) and the prima donna cyberneticist (tm) create megaton-range fireworks? It's not like I haven't smuggl...errr...SHIPPED things out of Nova Roma before, with a lot less to keep Interested Parties (tm) looking the other way.
Dragonrider 31st Jan 2014, 8:36 AM edit delete reply

Why thankee muchly kind sir, However I don't have much confidence in your ability to sneak something out that loudly ain't gonna leave unless she has her friend with her.
Tokyo Rose 31st Jan 2014, 5:21 PM edit delete reply

You may be assuming that Lynn will be (a) conscious and/or (b) able to make any noise at the time. Lynn's not Mr. Black's pweshus darling widdle girl. He's not above knocking her noisy ass out or duct-taping her mouth shut before stuffing her into a crate labeled "Scythe Lizard Excreta Samples". :D

Centcomm 31st Jan 2014, 9:34 AM edit delete reply

wait .. Kali and Marcus??
Sheela 31st Jan 2014, 10:08 AM edit delete reply

Yessh, they are the new pair to ship ... to Africa.

As for the motley crew, they are the perfect group to make a distraction with, while Mr. Black smuggles Acantha & Lynn out of Nova Roma.

It may look like an odd group at first, but it's not that stupid, and it has a lot of capability in it. I mean, imagine TeeDee and Marcus fighting together for a common goal, instead of fighting one another ?

That oughta be quite a show.
Meanwhile they have Ada to keep their butts clear, Mr. Black to sneak around while they make the distraction and Dr Silver and her drones to take advantage of whatever targets of opportunity might appear. (something, I suspect she might actually be very good at, dunno why, she just seem the type that is smart enough for that.)

Dragonrider 30th Jan 2014, 9:36 PM edit delete reply

I think or best hope here is Calli calls Breaker and has him call in the boys in the band, calls Dolly and tells her back-up is on the way, she breaks out her old leathers, gets her guns, she Mira,and Krystal form a team. She has Evil-1 detach to Reaper Droids and Vinnie to her, and heads to Joleet. Dolly has an APC with body armor stashed there. By then Krystal should know where Lynn is they go in fix Aeneaus get Lynn and Acantha the H out of there call Douchie-poo and explain how things work while Aeneas cuts all support Douchie-Poo has.

But then no one in the creative team ask my opinion....Dammit!!!!

Sheela 31st Jan 2014, 10:11 AM edit delete reply

But .. that's already the plan!

Marcus's band is the reinforcements, Kyle is the repairman, and Dolly and Ceci grab Lynn and run like hell!

Meanwhile, as Kyle repairs Aeneas, he probably have a thing or two he wants to talk with Prince Douchebag about.
highlander55 1st Feb 2014, 7:15 PM edit delete reply

If the Taylor's are Cent Comm's key, who is or was Aeneas's back in the day? And who/where are they?
velvetsanity 2nd Feb 2014, 6:37 AM edit delete reply

I think that was Acantha and Douchebag's family, Highlander.
Centcomm 2nd Feb 2014, 7:23 AM edit delete reply

I honestly can say that it was "NOT" the Livus family .. :P sorry ...
velvetsanity 2nd Feb 2014, 6:49 PM edit delete reply

Ahh, ok...I'm guessing there were no survivors of the relevant family after the coup...

Tokyo Rose 31st Jan 2014, 3:34 AM edit delete reply

Does it ruin your happy thought too much to know that dolls have only a rudimentary DAS with no "pain" analogue as such?...
Stormwind13 31st Jan 2014, 3:53 AM edit delete reply

Well we know that CentComm can 'feel' pain, which would serve Dragonrider's purpose I think. :-D
Dragonrider 31st Jan 2014, 2:05 PM edit delete reply

Then why did the Evil-1 doll ask Dolly not to hit her again because it did hurt so much?
Tokyo Rose 2nd Feb 2014, 7:01 AM edit delete reply

This doll's not exactly a combat model, but it's closer than the first doll we saw her walking around in. Also, Cent has a pile of "interaction protocols" that she tends to follow when she's trying to act human-ish, and "that caused physical discomfort, please don't do it again" is an acceptable Class 1 response to getting a non-damaging pop in the face. :D
Centcomm 2nd Feb 2014, 7:29 AM edit delete reply

Agree's with Rose here.. also note that "Dolls" dont bruse .. or bleed.. pain is a variant between 1 to 20 that causes some visual interactions and are designed to keep the doll undamaged ESP if it is running on the simple positronic core. ( and cent isnt paying attention ) this piticular doll.. ( Doll 03 MK 22 revision 38B ) is in responce to Teedee "SHOOTING" her other doll in the face. so she redesigned to try and make it more 'acceptable' ( better facial interaction more body sublaunguage - ARMORED skeleton and skull and a intrical deflector screen to shield it from laser fire. ) and no it is NOT a combat model .. its just the way Cent thinks.
Sheela 2nd Feb 2014, 5:02 PM edit delete reply


Do you realize what you just did Centcomm ?
You're trying to "TeeDee proof" your dolls. XD

OKay 3 things here

1: I honestly was unaware of that Thank you Rose for the information, but I am sure Calli would find a way around that limitation..

2 Stormwind I AM NOT DRAGONRIDER!@#@!#!@##$$!@#

3. Give me some credit Velvet I know that doll is not ceci And I would not use OMG I would say the words....THen leap in a death mech and fly off to save the real Ceci. Give me SOME credit here!!1
velvetsanity 31st Jan 2014, 11:30 PM edit delete reply

First, I was typing lazy, I would say the words too. Second, I know you'd go to save the real Ceci, hence running off camera. Notice I didn't say you'd grab the doll or anything silly like that :P
Stormwind13 1st Feb 2014, 8:10 AM edit delete reply

Sorry Rash. I know you and Dragonrider aren't the same. Frequently on opposite ends of 'discussions'.

I got cross-eyed or something. Your icon and Dragonrider's have similar colors, and I think that confused me. Again, sorry for making the mistake.
cattservant 30th Jan 2014, 10:26 PM edit delete reply

CentComm-3 is obscuring the situation with the 'Truth' and 'Angels'.
Has no one else noticed that we haven't actually heard Dolly's message? Just Mira's description of the situation?
Dragonrider 30th Jan 2014, 11:20 PM edit delete reply

Oh the message will be delivered in private, immediately before Helios Tower achieves LEO (Low Earth Orbit). It will also be jettisoning purple haired androids and dolls.
velvetsanity 31st Jan 2014, 7:53 AM edit delete reply

Uhh...don't you mean pink-haired?
Dragonrider 31st Jan 2014, 8:33 AM edit delete reply

No her hair started out as bubble-gum but changed to purple these last few pages.

Sheela 31st Jan 2014, 10:42 AM edit delete reply

Hrmm .. a flying Helios Tower ?


Calliope : So, you sabotaged their vehicle, and now Lynn has to stay in New Rome even longer?
Centcomm : Yes, but we don't have any other options.
Calliope : Could have given them a stronger vehicle ?
Centcomm : No vehicle we own could make up for the power parity between New Rome and one. single. vehicle!
Calliope : Oh, I disagree.
Calliope : Tower Matrix, Command - execute 'Starlight', target : New Rome, time frame : Right now.
Tower Matrix : Affirmative.
Centcomm : What are you doing ?
Calliope : I'm tired of this Centcomm, I'm tired of sitting around.
Calliope : I am one of the best nano weapon designers of this century, I know how to change power parities.
Calliope : When I made Lynn's bracelet, I realized I could increase the density of the metal with nanobots.
Calliope : That means that I could also add more nanobots to the metal, creating a stronger nanoblade projection.
Calliope : Ofcourse, for civilian use, I was limited, but it let me make it more elegant.
Calliope : But with the tower, I had no such limitations!
Calliope : So I made a few .. modifications, to the tower.
*a deep humming sound starts to perpetrate the tower*
Centcomm : What have you done Calli ?
*as the humm intencifies, the tower starts to shake*
Calliope : Isn't it obvious ?
*Centcomm switches to an outside camera from a nearby building and looks on*
*the ground around the base of the tower is breaking up*
*a golden light seeps out of the cracks from underneath the ground*
*soon it's obvious, the tower is lifting ever so slowly*

Centcomm : Calli, are you MAD ?
Centcomm : This is a tower, not a combat drone, one hit by a missile and it'll break in half!
Calliope : Not this tower!
Calliope : When I modified the tower, I got my hands on four stardrive generators from a Titan class cruiser.
Calliope : I then had them installed so one would power the sublight anti-grav engines from a heavy duty lift ship.
Calliope : Another powers the 17 blue light Maser gatling cannons.
Calliope : The third powers 418 homebrewed nano-based barrier shields, that can be turned on and off individually, allowing the gattlings to shoot out trough the shield.
Calliope : And finally, the pierce-de-resistance ... one master class plasma beam weapon from a Crian Planetoid.
Centcomm : A WHAT ???
Calliope : You heard me.
Calliope : I have to admit, it *was* a challenge to fit a 115 meter long plasma weapon inside a small Tower like this.
Calliope : I even had to remove one of the elevators, but sacrifices in comfort were made for more power!
Centcomm : But ... but ...
Tower Matrix : Arriving at New Rome in 12 minutes 15 seconds.
Calliope : Now, do you think we can dispence with the formalities and just aim this great honking gun at someone who deserves it ?
Centcomm : Y-you're all MAD !
Calliope : That's what I told Fallon when he came up with the idea originally, offcourse, I didn't know how to build it back then.
Calliope : Ahhh, how time flies.
Calliope : And towers.
Calliope : Towers flies too.
Centcomm : what did I do to deserve masters like these?
Centcomm : Well, at least now I know why you never asked for access to my old weapons cache.
Calliope : Yeah, I really don't need them.

Wow Sheela. Great thought there. And it would be pretty funny to see. :-D Sadly though, I think that would end the comic sooner than planned, so it probably won't happen.

I would LOVE to see it though. The poor doll would start walking into walls pretty quick though, once the tower got out of range of the Sel-Cast relays. That would be ONE way of shutting up CentComm. :-D

Sheela: On the one hand, that would be pretty awesome. A flying tower with a 115 meter plasma cannon? What's not to like. On the other hand, I'm pretty sure that kinda thing would make me throw up my hands, say "WTF!!?" and quit reading as it would signal that the shark has been well and truly jumped. I mean, how the hell would you follow that? Besides, all this future tech is interesting and pretty well thought out, but what keeps me coming back to Data Chasers is the characters with CentComm and Rose's ability to make us care about or hate them. Pretty strongly in some cases.

@Don B. >

Well don't you worry, it's just some silly, NON-CANON, fanfiction. And it would be easy to top as well.
And as for jumping the shark, it'd be more like shooting the sea the shark lives in and then landing on top of the shark .. repeatedly. :D

Dragonrider 31st Jan 2014, 12:29 AM edit delete reply

All Evil-1 is interested in is the type-5 android body, she told Her"hand picked team" that Dolly was more important than Lynn be sure Dolly got back.
Aetrun 31st Jan 2014, 3:02 AM edit delete reply
This makes me think-was the descendant of Helios thing strictly biological, or in the event that something makes that impossible (such as stated issues with reproduction) could an adopted family member be designated? If so, could Dolly count? They already consider her family and now Calli has created a body for her that is to all appearances human (well mostly...) Could Calli actually designate her as heir if something were to happen to Lynn- and as Dolly is a more logical creature would she not be more readily managed by Cent than us unpredictable humans?

I know this is highly unlikely, but I find it an intriguing thought nonetheless.
Tokyo Rose 31st Jan 2014, 3:39 AM edit delete reply

Strictly biological. No Helios DNA, no go. Dolly's not eligible. (No, Calli did NOT add any Helios DNA into the bio-cultures producing Dolly's Mark-5.)

Sorry >.>
Stormwind13 31st Jan 2014, 3:55 AM edit delete reply

Pity about that Rose. That would have been SOOOO much fun. :-D

Aetrun 1st Feb 2014, 7:37 AM edit delete reply
Rose, since you mention the bio-cultures, does that mean they could do that if they wanted, or were you just politely saying "Don't even think about it guys!"?
If they could do it, could Cent have an android body made with said cultures that she controled? Just idle wondering at this point.

mjkj 31st Jan 2014, 2:57 AM edit delete reply

Well, CentComm comes clear - and that actually makes sense...

See how Krystal is interested and listening in?

I wonder when the topic comes to Dolly being an android - which Mira does not know...

...and Ceci being a black angel is confirmed :D - so there is an independent black angel on the run - new rome, beware!

*hugs Mira and Krystal*
Stormwind13 31st Jan 2014, 3:58 AM edit delete reply

I would be surprised if that was discussed in an unsecured hallway. I mean, that is a pretty big 'secret'. :-) Guess we will wait and see.
mjkj 31st Jan 2014, 4:52 AM edit delete reply

What I meant was an accidental slip...
cattservant 31st Jan 2014, 6:16 AM edit delete reply

I was kind of wondering about that too.
But I think CentComm-3 shut the blast doors when she took the 'safety off' of her enforcers, so all this is taking place 'inside' out of sight of prying eyes.
I'm still wondering why Krystal is included in the discussion?
Maybe our fearless leaders will remember to enlighten us.
Dragonrider 31st Jan 2014, 2:19 PM edit delete reply

Cat, question, Did Evil-1 shut the blast doors OR did Calli activate Sunstone?

Stormwind13 2nd Feb 2014, 8:41 PM edit delete reply

The only one that MIGHT bring it up is Mira, if she thinks something is... 'off' about Dolly. As it seems that Dolly had people pretty much fooled though, I kind of doubt it.
antrik 10th Oct 2016, 4:38 AM edit delete reply
Since Mira used Dolly's full designation to identify, my understanding was that Mira is in the know about Dolly being an android...

At 6:58, Data Chasers - 2, Luna Star 3 and Staff and Sword - 5. You guys have all 3 of your comics in the top 5, last day of the month. :-D
Sheela 31st Jan 2014, 8:20 PM edit delete reply

Well that's interesting, it's currently ranked 4th, I wonder how long that'll last ?

What was it we needed it to be at for Marcus to go on a date with Dr. Silver again ?
Stormwind13 31st Jan 2014, 8:48 PM edit delete reply

Inside 5th, I think. 1 hour 12 minutes to go. :-D
Sheela 31st Jan 2014, 9:19 PM edit delete reply

Heh, awesome ... still ranked 4th. :)

Sorry, Storm, that is the first day - voting server runs on UTC...
Stormwind13 1st Feb 2014, 8:49 AM edit delete reply

I think the bet was if we were in the top 5 on the last day of the month, mjkj. It is still the 31st in the Eastern time zone (where Marcus is). So despite TWC's action, it FULFILLS the bets' conditions. :-D
mjkj 1st Feb 2014, 12:47 PM edit delete reply

Yeah, I think technically speaking it does :p

I hope we get to see pictures...

Dragonrider 1st Feb 2014, 6:15 PM edit delete reply

At noon EST it was 14. Right now Luna Star is 14.
Sheela 2nd Feb 2014, 9:54 AM edit delete reply

Aw, all the way down to 15 ... still, compaired to where it was ranked just half a year ago, it's definately gone up.

Last month had it ending in mid-twenties, right ?
Centcomm 2nd Feb 2014, 9:58 AM edit delete reply

Yep we have really come a long way in rankings .. we just need more people to vote constantly ..
Dragonrider 2nd Feb 2014, 12:26 PM edit delete reply

In the Author Notes put something like this each time.
Sheela 2nd Feb 2014, 5:15 PM edit delete reply

Aww .. but I kinda *want* Rose to visit meee! :(

But Douchebag can go jump in a volcano, and Kali can help him do it. >:)
velvetsanity 2nd Feb 2014, 6:56 PM edit delete reply

Hey, if Rose has a truck, she's more than welcome to visit me. Especially if there is storage space the size of, say, a medium to large walk-in closet available. I'm hoping to be moving in the next few months, possibly to that area.
Rashala 2nd Feb 2014, 7:50 PM edit delete reply

I'd not mind Rose or Kali visiting Kali we could play chess, discuss ideas for Methiods to deal with situations quietly and precisely. Rose Well We could go out play some Jokes, catch a comedian RIg up centy's New doll to belch and fart on command.

As for D-bag....Meh would just lokc him in a room with a full length mirror and let him dealw ith himself
Dragonrider 2nd Feb 2014, 8:40 PM edit delete reply

Kali only plays chess using live bodies as opponents pieces and she plays all positions using a Mark II Cellular Disruptor to remove captured pieces.
velvetsanity 2nd Feb 2014, 8:56 PM edit delete reply

I highly doubt she'd be so wasteful of resources, Dragonrider...
