[Comic for Wednesday, August 2, 2023]


[[The crew of the HMS Bounty has contacted the Grand Protuberance, whose shimmering hologram now dominates the front of the bridge. Nick, Fooker, and Trudy flank Pi as he sits in the captain's chair.]]
Protuberance: Those ships MUST be intercepted before they can reach the Cynosure.
Nick: Which is our intention. We'll be heading underway momentarily.

Protuberance: My flagship is still under repair. We cannot depart for at least another 240 kiloganadans. I will come aboard your vessel shortly.
Pi: [Flatly] I can't allow that.

Protuberance: [Taken aback] You...? [Scowling] Elaborate, #3141592.
Pi: First, my NAME is Pi. Second, this ship and its crew are now independent of you and the collective. I don't have to kowtow to your demands.

Pi: [Defiantly] Unless you are willing to submit to blocking all telepathic signals, I'm not letting you set one metatarsal on my ship.
Fooker: [Whispering to Trudy] Wow... ol' Pi done grew a pair...
