The Transcript For This Page

Panel 1
In a lounge empty save for Nicole and Seamus. Nicole is leaning against a railing, looking dejected, as Seamus is walking up to her.
Seamus: Missing your friend Buford?
Nicole: Well, sure I miss her. But that's not the problem.

Panel 2
Switch view to behind Nicole and Seamus she's looking through an observation window at distant Sol. Their conversation continues via thoughtsend.
Nicole: This spaceliner is full of Loonies, Seamus. And did you know the company that owns her is half-owned by a subsidiary of Omega-Tek?
Seamus: Yes, I know.

Panel 3
Switch view back so we can see their faces.
Nicole: There was a Huoxingian ship scheduled for departure two days later than this one.
Seamus: Which would be problematic for Murphy, wouldn't you say?

Panel 4
Exterior view of the ship, the Argosy.
Nicole: She has her manumission docs, and our protection. Are you trying to aggravate me?
Seamus: My choice of conveyance was not about your feelings, Nicole, or Murphy's.

Panel 5
Back in the observation lounge, Nicole faces Seamus confrontationally.
Nicole: Then, what ?
Seamus: This ship the Argosy -- better fit my schedule.
Seamus: But let me assure you, we are in no danger from the crew or passengers here.

Panel 6
Nicole faces Seamus confrontationally.
Nicole: Oh yeah? Convince me.
Seamus: The other half-owner is a subsidiary of GENSAXWAL.
Nicole: GEN-are you shucking kidding me?

Panel 7
Nicole looks thoughtful as Seamus explains.
Seamus: Think about it each entity wants our secret, but also has a powerful interest in not allowing the other entity to get it, either.
Seamus: The two cancel each other out. We're as much on neutral territory as if this ship were owned by L-5ers.

Panel 8
Nicole looks at the zringer on her finger.
Nicole: At least they didn't give me any crat about my zringer.
Seamus: Or your handgun. Things are different out here on the frontier.
