The GPF site will undergo routine, scheduled maintenance this Thursday, June 27th, from 10pm to midnight EDT (2am to 4am UTC on Friday the 28th). A two-hour window has been scheduled for this event, but it will hopefully not take that long. During this maintenance, the site will not be available and will appear offline. Due to the timing, there is a chance that Friday's scheduled comic update may be delayed. We apologize in advance for this inconvenience.

Transcription

[[Dexter and Patty share the foreground, reacting in surprise to the view before them. They appear to be in the Physaric ship "control room", which is covered in odd organic outcroppings and non-manufactured shapes. Various aliens and humans appear to be working together on various tasks, supposedly under Physaric control. Outside the large window, both the Earth and the Moon are visible, implying that they are in orbit. The mysterious speaker from the previous strip continues from off-panel.]]
Unknown: Which is ironic, I suppose, given that I never expected to see such a sight in person...

[[The mysterious speaker opens a large metallic briefcase, filled with unknown objects. He continues as he rifles for the case, looking for something.]]
Unknown: When I was younger, I dreamed of joining the space program. Mercury, Gemini, Apollo... After I was wounded in 'Nam, of course... Well, that ended THAT dream.

[[As the speaker continues, Trish, Patty, and Dexter exchange puzzled glances.]]
Unknown: What a difference a few decades makes. Once I was a lad marveling at Sputnik; now it's all iPhones and WiFi and the Internet... Technology is everywhere...
