[Comic for Monday, March 9, 2015]


[[Colonel Lionel Barker paces with his hands behind his back, addressing Patty, Dexter, and Trish.]]
Lionel: These aliens will equip us to defend against the Greys. Their vast resources, combined with our technology, will help us drive the enemy from our solar system.

Lionel: Meanwhile, their "domination" of Earth will demoralize the populace. Discontent will give rise to unity and, ultimately, rebellion, which I will _also_ help facilitate.

[[Lionel paces away from the outcropping, and Fred surreptitiously extends a pseudopod to observe.]]

[[Focus on Lionel's face, looking hopeful.]]
Lionel: Ideally, we will learn to control the enemy, turning them and their vast resources into our puppets, leading to a new golden age... a united Earth empire, poised to dominate our galaxy...
