[Comic for Monday, May 26, 2014]


[[Aboard the Grey's ship, Fooker, Sharon, Justin, and the two drones 3141592 ("Pi") and 6626068 ("Planck") are talking to the Great Skaboola.]]
Skaboola: So tell me, Reject XB3-293, what do you know of these creatures from your "alternate universe"?
Fooker: Not much, I'm afraid. And call me Fooker, please.

Fooker: [angrily] We know they can control other species by latching onto them and manipulating them like a puppet, and that they can communicate telepathically. The subjugate worlds for thralls and meat.
[[Sharon looks at Fooker, concerned.]]

Skaboola: [thoughtfully] Interesting. You already know much, although you ascribe them more intelligence than they may deserve.
[[The Skaboola is interrupted by another drone.]]
Drone: Your liege, is it wise to divulge such information to these natives?

Skaboola: #2997925, these humans already know about our conflict. To maintain a ruse of ignorance would be counterproductive.
#6626068: [whispered excitedly, to #3121459] Hey! We could call him "C"!
