: Note to sci-fi purists: The sound effect in this panel was provided from the perspective of the F'sherl-ganni aboard the habitat Petey used as a shield, rather than from the perspective of the reader. No email, please.

"Sound carries better in space because there's no air to get in the way, you see"
"Why should they be afraid that people outside the ship are going to hear them? Sound doesn't carry in a vacuum! They could have Slayer performing in the galley while shoving a cat in a garbage disposal AND NOBODY OUTSIDE THE SHIP WOULD HEAR ANYTHING!"
"The Kilrathi bomb the station in their very loud spacecraft."
"Wow it sure is quiet out there! I thought space was full of opera singers."
"George Lucas was once told there were no sounds in airless space. He didn't believe it. Today, George Lucas is a millionaire."

"What I wouldn't give for the maddening silence of space right about now."
Helen: "For heaven's sake, Dave, sound doesn't travel in the vacuum of space! Call back when you're in an atmosphere and stop running up the bill."
"NOTE: Sound does not travel in a vacuum. All sound effects are produced by the cartoonist while drawing."
