By asking before making the split, he asked both at once. And in matters of consent, making a copy in the first place requires asking.

Yep. Tagon Jr. really has issues. I'm worried for him.

And so is Kathryn (?) by the looks of things.

No, Kathryn Flinders is the analyst and ex-antagonistic-parkourer, wears black mohawk nowadays. And a red uniform, don't recall what rank that is.

This is Captain Alexia Murtaugh.

I realize that the "wedge of sashimi" might just be the baseline genome talking, but I like the way Landon thinks.

Tagon can read, right? He has been shown reading something at some point?

But seriously, I do love the reminders that Tagon is smarter than everyone thinks. It's just that when you surround yourself with literally the smartest people in the galaxy and have minimal formal education, you look like an idiot.

He is intelligent, and highly professional in his own field. (Namely, small scale military tactics and warship combat.)

But he still doesn't like reading, reports and books alike.

I never even saw Tagon pop up in the last panel of the strip until I read it again just now. I take it that his ears were burning?

I was wondering how the telescope would work, since they don't have FTL observation.

@Discar: Hey, he read "The Seventy Maxims of Maximally Effective Pirates," we know that for sure.

That said, if we were to learn that Tagon deliberately plays up the Book Dumb tendencies to get everyone to underestimate him, I wouldn't be surprised.

For "payload," I know it probably wouldn't be Tagon's favorite designation, but he'd probably begrudgingly accept it.

For today, guess it's time to learn to work together.

Basic training.

By the way, turning one day into fourteen weeks is a multiplier of ninety-eight, or just under two orders of magnitude.

Keeping score.

In which we are reminded that in some ways, Kevyn is more main-charactery than Tagon.

Your funny quote here! (Maybe)

Most of those were in veery different fashions. Leets have a count...

Time one: gatecloned and then blew himself up.
Time two: got killed on the primitive world and revived by Lazarus nannies. Then did it again. However note that in both of these cases there even wasn't any brain damage at all.
Time four? Maxim 38 kaboom.
Five? I got nothing.

She shouldn't counting any times he ended up as a head in a jar because, that would add one more to Tagon and herself too.

For Kevyn, I think he technically died *3* times on that primitive world, the one with the jeopards. It's just that one of the revivals was a very temporary one so that his corpse wouldn't be thrown in an incinerator while the Lazarus nannies did their thing.

Alternatively, he might be counting "cheating death" instead of revivals, and he might be counting his time clone coming back to make sure the universe didn't get blown up by the dark matter entities blowing up the galactic core (which, if you want to get technical, ups everyone else's "back from the dead" count by one, though we obviously didn't know Katherine at the time).

Also, worth noting that we apparently are not counting Laz-1 revivals here, because, if so, several numbers have been higher. Here's the first instance of both Tagon and Elf getting put into a jar, and it wasn't the last for either.

I really cannot argue with that last panel's logic.
