Interesting. At the beginning of the series (all the way back in D,OB!), form was second to function, judging by some of the older designs.

Ah, the inevitable toll of the public spectacle on any well-run exploratory organization! There is always a dichotomy between being good and looking good.

You callin' my ships ugly? :huh:

Well,the difference here of course is that I'm modeling a craft from a sci-fi show that didn't pay any attention to real-world physics at all. Comes to mind that the amount of work required to make a sci-fi replica craft actually fly in KSP might be a pretty good indicator of how "hard" the source material is.

Nope, just calling them functional above all else.

I'd never call your ugly ships ugly, at least, not to your ugly avatar's face.

:wink:

There's a reason they call it "Science-fiction."

This Interlude was originally going to be a lot shorter and a lot simpler, but then I watched Season 1 of Glee again with the kids. Enjoy. :)

Wait, what was that slide where someone goes "Nimzo is dying!" as Bill opens the persistence? I don't seem to remember that.

EDIT: If you even think about saying "Darude - Sandstorm..."

Well here's a fun trivia challenge--can anyone identify all the snapshots without re-reading several years' worth of comics? :)

@Kuzzter Oh, okay. I do know that song. I just happen to have a hard time picking out what song it is from just parody lyrics. :D

Now to go re-read the new pages with the song playing in the background!

hahaha... It has nothing to do with the show... Glee was my ex's favorite... :wink:

And yeah, the song was easy, actually.... but I grew up on Journey...

It's a nice touch that Leonard's eyebrows are visible from behind. :)

An enjoyable interlude, and a good tribute to the spirit of exploration that drives us to discover the unknown.

Extremely well! Only quibbles are that in 2.  that's Nimzo, and the rover is attached to Qwammer via Tugbot for descent to Pol. The flag in 10. is the one Bill planted after landing the Billmobile

In my defense, all the other pictures in the beginning of an engineer were Bill, so I assumed the lyrics were referring to him. :/

I knew what the song was from the start (I _may_ have seen Journey perform live a few too many times when I was young), but for some reason my brain wouldn't connect up until I played it on the ol iPod. Instead it kept trying to attach it to either Sk8er Boi or one of several different Simon & Garfunkle songs..... Think I need more coffee. 

Well done interlude.
