Plotting A Course

Written by Victor on . Posted in

Ever the cagey combatant, James Anchor wants to stay hidden for as long as possible. Without knowing the capabilities of your opponents, it’s always safest to assume that they can vaporize you with a glance. That isn’t far from the truth, since Zozians spent the better part of the last millennium asleep on a colony ship! A course is laid in, and off they go!

Here’s a fun thing about Jupiter’s asteroids: what I depicted in today’s comic is something that actually exists in our solar system!

Gas Giant

James Anchor has arrived in the system where Zik is, and he’s wisely hiding near the north pole of a gas giant, hoping its massive magnetic field will hide him from scanners.
Aurorae are very huge things on gas giants! Take a look at this one on Jupiter! Keep in mind that Jupiter is 11.2 times bigger than earth. That’s a huge aurora!

Hiding From Clonoids

Zik and Trent hide themselves in the junk heap and hunker down until the coast is clear. But look at the size of that naked Clonoid! Whoa! Guys, turn around, you’re going to want to see that! Guys? GUYS! Oh damn…

Eat Railgun

So here we see the second use of railgun technology in the comic. In case you don’t know what a railgun is, it is a weapon that accelerates a projectile using electromagnetism as opposed to combustion. The projectile is guided down two rails and accelerated to extremely high speeds as it leaves the weapon. I chose this technology because it is still in the experimental phase currently, and because it can be used to fire projectiles in the vaccum of space (IE without oxygen). The people of Zoz use this technology extensively for their sidearms and on weapons platforms for their ships. It can also be used to send probes or cargo over long distances without the use of propellant.
