\n[[WMG:'Mako' will complete her HeelFaceTurn and [[BecomingTheMask live on as Mathilde]].]]
* There have been an increasing number of moments in this storyline [[http://www.schlockmercenary.com/2015-02-11 like this]] where Mako has made unguarded statements -- statements that are detrimental to her guise as [[http://www.schlockmercenary.com/2014-06-27 a member of the Jurisindependent Security Covenant]] -- suggesting that she (or he, possibly) is unhappy with her/his life. And, importantly, the current situation is such a clusterstrophe that Mako might ''actually'' be able to maneuver into a situation where Kowalski's handlers don't kill her/him off. (Or escape into Petey space, either one.)

[[WMG: Lota is planning to save the Credomar populace from a ticking bomb.]]
* Lota is not planning to destroy the place or take it over by moving everyone else out. Lota has discovered that there is an imminent danger in staying on Credomar, ''but'' cannot just tell the people to evacuate for some reason. Or possibly they'd be in more danger if they ran now. But once Lota has the teraport stuff installed, it'll be a snap to move them all off to a secure location. When Credomar blows up or gets taken over by baddies or gets turned into a superweapon or gets pushed into the sun, [[WMG:Petey's apparent abandonment of the Toughs was {{Just As Planned}}]]
* The Toughs' well known association with the Fleetmind was drawing too much attention from the UNS, and Petey is rather fond of them. He needed a way to keep them safe while he didn't need them, and appearing to sacrifice them to UNS control was the best way to do it. Since he's capable of messing around with a Battleplate's AI, as well as providing the technical material for the nanite plans, he probably hid a switch in the false memories of Tagon's crew to restore their real memories.
** {{Jossed}}, he said he can't restore their memories, just flag false ones. It was only different in the case of Kevyn, as Petey had secretly copied all of Kevyn's memories at the end of Book 8 (circa [[http://www.schlockmercenary.com/2007-05-14 the 2007-05-14 strip]]).

the people will be safely out of the way.
** And this one has officially [[http://www.schlockmercenary.com/d/20091219.html been confirmed]]!

[[WMG: Why did Tag not come back online? Petey stole him.]]
* I am probably getting part of how AI works in the Schlockverse wrong, but bear with me. Petey and Tag got along very well the few times they encountered each other, and the latter even managed to [[http://www.schlockmercenary.com/d/20060806.html spot Petey's meddling]] where most everyone else couldn't. I don't see Petey wanting to watch such a brilliant mind to go to waste, so if it was possible he might have spirited Tag away to let him join the Fleetmind.
** Tag isn't gone - Tagii was grown from Tag's gestalt. Para could have rebuilt Tag as he was, but he would still have an open exploit (force Tag to act independent of Tagon's orders, break the AI in the middle of combat, bad guys win.) All of Tag is still there, and I suspect that Tagii will have all of the quirky humor and tactical genius Tag had - we just haven't seen Tagii in action yet.
*** Given her one-off comment to Tagon along the lines of 'it's a pleasure to meet you from a new perspective', I'm starting to think this may be the case as well. Would be nice if we could get some WordOfGod on this, though . . .
**** I think we can consider it confirmed by the narrator in [[http://www.schlockmercenary.com/2012-04-08 the 2012-04-08 strip]]: "Originally created by Commander Andreyasn to be a tactical genius with limited self-awareness, she [Tagii] was given sanity, sapience, and gender identity by Lieutenant Para Ventura..."



[[WMG: The weird zombie things that got made out of Gavs are [[DoctorWho Martian Water Zombies]]]]
* Really hoping this isn't just another "obligatory" [[DoctorWho Doctor Who]]/arbitrary crossover guess, or an "X looks like Y in a tiny, specific way" (in this case, taking over bodies and being spat from the mouth one way or another), so here it goes... All iterations and versions of the Laz'R'Us nanobot systems, plus Petey's version of them, are based on the same illegal nanobot system (plus, for some versions, an extra set of nannies designed to work in tandem with them). Assuming you're talking about "The Waters of Mars", it's possible but very, ''very'' unlikely that the Laz'R'Us nannies are a modified version of the parasites found on Mars. Beyond that, there really isn't any reasonable way for there to be a connection. Furthermore, the water bugs can synthesize water from other forms of matter with an unrealistic efficiency, and from what we've seen the RED #2 is a lot less efficient (even considering the possible density differences between fullerened armor-weave skin plates and water).
