The Transcript For This Page

Panel 1
As Nicole and Seamus continue eating, a woman Executive walks by with a pair of diminutive female Associates in tow. Nicole glances sideways at them.
Nicole: The Associates have no wills of their own?
Seamus: They are as beaten-down psychologically as they are physically.

Panel 2
Seamus and Nicole. She's a bit startled by Seamus' question.
Seamus: So, what are you feeling about those three that just walked by?

Panel 3
Seamus and Nicole.
Nicole: I'm not sure why, but something makes me want to like that Exec and kick her associates – despite what I think about their shucked-up caste system.
Seamus: No doubt.


Panel 4
We now see the woman Executive seated at another table with her Associates. Nicole and Seamus can be seen a few meters away. The Executive is programming a food order into the servo-bot.
Nicole: I don't get it.
Seamus: Ideology has limited efficacy in a System with such pervasive communication as even Terrans use. So, a different strategem was employed to keep all the castes obedient to the Executives: pheromones
