Quantum Vibe / Re: Pixie girl needs to make an Anysuit.

I suspect that anybody looking for her here would be suspicious of anybody (of the right size) whose face was hidden.

Of course, "here" is the type of place where a mugging would be easy to arrange in order to see what's under the "Jawa" robe.  ;)

I would have gone the Jawa route if I was her. She's the right size.

I assumed that page=1523 was an anysuit, and it was cut off of her and confiscated during surgery, but maybe it was plain clothing.

Ralf: But you, you're unique. The only 'hyooman' anyone's seen in this galaxy.

Derogatory for "human". Used by furries who take themselves too seriously and forget that they themselves are humans.
"Why do hyoomans always have to be fursecuting us?"



(note: Transcript differs from speech bubble in strip.)

Its also a nice little reference to the fact that the universal translator always works perfectly except for how to pronounce "human."

She's a competent engineer. Surely she'll be able to whip up a holographic disguise/Anysuit in short order.

But we don't know for sure which leaves things open for authors.  ;)

It might be possible that alien species could enjoy the same beverages/foods as we don't have examples of how evolution would work on other worlds.
Even sticking to familiar chemistry, there is stereo-chemistry for nucleic and some amino acids, and a chance that randomly arising life would get some of those reversed.  And the nucleic and amino acids familiar to Earth life are hardly the only forms in those families possible.  So chances of completely alien life being chemically compatible by chance are slim.

While Scott had established that no other humanoid (live or dead) had been discovered in his world prior to this story, he hasn't IIRC established that Earth lifeforms can't survive eating alien lifeforms.

Note, I suspect that the basic humanoid form is a likely form for intelligent alien species.

There are too many advantages in it for a tool-using species.

On the other hand, the closer an intelligent alien species is to appearing like an Earth Human, the more I'd suspect that "somebody is meddling".   ;)

I took "guovett" as something like coffee or some other beverage.

It's worth noting that they appear to be eating the same "food." Unless there's a different recipe per species.

"V-36" is my made up reference to Fallout Vault #36, BTW.

I established in an earlier strip that human physiology is compatible with some of the alien species', (at least mostly). K'Tagons happen to be one mostly-compatible species.

200 million seconds? Is that a typo? That's over 6 years!
How long were Hugo and Murphy stuck on Casa Sui before the Soroxian ship showed up?

Worse than a typo, that was a complete foul-up. I don't know what was going on there. I'll fix it.
