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

[[Planck (Grey Drone #6626068) finishes up his scan of Trudy and analyzes the data on his tablet. Sharon and Trudy sit nearby, waiting patiently.]]
Planck: I have a working hypothesis for how this "Nega-Nick" acquired his telepathy, and for how he transferred it to Trudy, and it looks like this data may confirm it...

[[Socrates stretches up to peer at Planck's tablet as he continues.]]
Planck: We've been studying Physaric DNA for giga-ganadans. It's extremely flexible and resilient, which we think leads to their ability to control very disparate species.

[[Planck holds up his tablet for everyone to see. On the screen, we see a silhouette of Nick (or more likely "Nega-Nick") next to two strands of DNA. One appears to be a normal human double-helix, while the other appears to be a triple-helix. An arrow below them implies a merger of the two DNA strands, forming a double-helix with a third strand straight down its middle. Planck continues his explanation.]]
Planck: That malleability could have caused "Nega-Nick's" DNA to become infused with his Physaric controller's. That energy jolt literally spliced them into a genetic human-Physaric hybrid.

Planck: When the genetic transfer occurred during their intercourse with Trudy, the Physaric DNA similarly merged with hers. She is now a Trudy-Nega-Nick-Physaric chimera.
[[As Planck concludes his analysis, we see the reactions from his audience. Ki and Fooker both show surprise, Sharon concern, and Trudy disgust.]]
