Strip 943 -- First Seen: 2012-04-27
Escape From Terra is updated with new pages every Monday through Friday.
SubscribeStar Update: All Systems Go!
The QUANTUM VIBE page on SubscribeStar is now open for business.
Those seeking an alternative to Patreon for supporting Scott and Quantum Vibe, SubscribeStar is another option. Paypal is not available with SubsribeStar, but credit cards are accepted. Plans for accepting crypto-payments are in the works. Stay tuned.
SubscribeStar update: Not yet
The QUANTUM VIBE page on SubscribeStar is open, although the site seems to be going through some growing pains.
For that reason I'm advising Patrons looking to switch over, to wait a little while longer. I subscribed to a couple of channels there and there are some billing issues. If they get cleared up within a week, I'll announce the ALL CLEAR and invite everyone unhappy with Patreon to come over.
The Transcript For This Page
Leon enters the ISS's main bridge, Terry close behind. Everyone is there at various stations. Leon takes charge.
Leon: Report, Mr. Nasiff.
Everyone is omn-edge, but professional and serious. No one is panicking, however Moises is slightly more distraught than the rest.
Moises: We have been exposed, Captain.
Moises: The media aren't saying where they got the story. They are talking a lot about you, but not the rest of us. So, it looks as though they don't know who else is involved.
From behind Moises we see the rest of the crew and Leon listening intently.
Moises: Some of the blow-dries are saying that you have taken Svetlana, Henrique and Raymundo as hostages.
Moises: There is a lot of blah-blah about mounting a rescue and hanging the pirates from the yardarm.
Leon has a snarky look on his face as his crew laughs at his joke.
Leon: That's a pretty silly threat in zero-gee.
Leon becomes more serious as he asks Moises a question.
Leon: Anything official?
Moises: Well all of the ISS treat signatories—except the Russians—are transmitting impossible orders and unrealistic threats.
Moises: They are pretty much foaming at the mouth. When their ire goes down, I suspect they will dial it down a bit.
Smallish panel. Moises and Leon.
Moises: Shall I respond?
Leon: For now, no.
Close-up of Leon, looking intense.
Leon: However, I have the first draft of a statement I want us to make.
Leon: I need everyone's input.
