[Comic for Monday, May 12, 2014]


[[Back in the junkyard's office, Dexter, Patty, Trish, and Fred listen as Socrates starts his story.]]
Socrates: I suppose the story of how we came here begins when the Syncytium ordered us to abandon our outpost in the Luyten 726-8 system...

Patty: Luyten 726-8?
Dexter: A nearby binary star system approximately 2.63 parsecs of 8.58 light-years from earth.
Patty: [glaring] Of COURSE you'd know that...

Trish: [to Socrates] W-what's a "s-s-syncytium?"
Socrates: Well, it's a little hard to explain. It's sort of our ruling body, but that's over-simplifying things.

Socrates: Maybe I should give you a little more background on where our species came from first...
Patty: I'd say we should settle in and fetch some snacks, but this place only saps my appetite...
