I fear that Galina won't find them 'fun'. Interesting though, I think most people will find them. :-)
Reiko 25th Feb 2014, 12:16 AM edit delete reply

I'm finding this entire comic to be very interesting. It's not often that one gets to glimpse such an important part of our history so...intimately...video recreations aren't quite the same as seeing how it actually happened.
Centcomm 25th Feb 2014, 12:17 AM edit delete reply

I think a lot of the readers will just be happy that Galina is finally getting fixed!! :D YAY!
Stormwind13 25th Feb 2014, 12:37 AM edit delete reply

Well THIS reader will be glad when Galina is back among the walking. :-)
Centcomm 25th Feb 2014, 12:57 AM edit delete reply

I think we all will be...:D
Sheela 25th Feb 2014, 3:31 PM edit delete reply

Hrmmphh .... I still think we should have gone with tracks instead.

Much faster than feet.
Centcomm 25th Feb 2014, 4:04 PM edit delete reply

yes but legs are SOO much cuter no?
mjkj 25th Feb 2014, 9:03 PM edit delete reply

Yes, Cent, they are - but we do not see any here...
Sheela 26th Feb 2014, 2:45 PM edit delete reply

I dunno ... tracks can be pretty cute too.

Pink tracks ! :D

Amy is questioning how she did it herself.
Centcomm 25th Feb 2014, 12:32 AM edit delete reply

Shes quite puzzled but pleased.. :D
Sheela 25th Feb 2014, 3:33 PM edit delete reply

I find it interesting that just after Amy tells Galina how she's a person, Galina turns it around and throws it back at Amy, making Amy actively consider her own position as a person herself.

Nice way to flip the script. :)
Centcomm 25th Feb 2014, 4:04 PM edit delete reply

:D yeah shes smart like that :D

I think I managed to even skate that one past CENT'S radar. Thank you ;)
Centcomm 25th Feb 2014, 7:44 PM edit delete reply

it did .. but im just going to smile .. nod and act like it was intentional :D

well on my part .. bows to Rose and gives her the accolades :D
cattservant 26th Feb 2014, 8:17 AM edit delete reply

Made Amy say "I" twice!
Sheela 26th Feb 2014, 2:46 PM edit delete reply

I haz a radar !
It haz a flavor!

woooOoooooo

Should this play out as it logically could, Gali is going to be spending quite a bit of time with Amy helping her to become fully integrated as an AIS Android.
Centcomm 25th Feb 2014, 12:32 AM edit delete reply

If she has the time - im sure Amy could learn a lot from her :D

And without so much as the blink of an eye, or and artificial pink plastic "hair" out of place: Ladies and Gentlemen we present*Fanfare* EVIL-1 here to tantalize you with missteps, facts known only to herself and not revealed to you until much to late, plots within plots, wheels within wheels and with dead end clues galore. Believe none of what you see and only half of what you read, and that at the risk of being made o fool of when the truth is finally revealed. Or will the truth ever be revealed, the truth is out there but will we ever find it?

in the words of Mr. Stackpole .. Always keep the readers guessing and offbalance >:D

The truth is out there ?

Dammit, how did it escape my perfectly safe carboard box .. again ? :(
Centcomm 25th Feb 2014, 4:04 PM edit delete reply

it used a box cutter :D
Sheela 25th Feb 2014, 4:27 PM edit delete reply

Defeated by a box cutter!
plymayer 25th Feb 2014, 3:26 AM edit delete reply

She made a big leap. Thinking instead of reacting according to programming. That is kind of the question for all of us. How much is programming? How much is independent thought?

Is this not why we try some folks as adults in a criminal trial?
Centcomm 25th Feb 2014, 12:06 PM edit delete reply

yes it is a HUGE leap thats why rose was so happy to see it :D
mjkj 25th Feb 2014, 5:35 AM edit delete reply

Yayy, she fixed it :D

*hugs Amy, May (though she seems absent), and carefully Galina*

Reiko 25th Feb 2014, 6:21 AM edit delete reply

May's not absent. That's her hand under Galina's head.
mjkj 25th Feb 2014, 8:45 AM edit delete reply

Ah, true that looks like May - did not see it on the other display, thanks Velvet/Reiko
velvetsanity 25th Feb 2014, 12:12 PM edit delete reply

Feel free to assume that if I post as Reiko, then it's Reiko speaking in-character (except for the occasion where I might 'oops' and post under the wrong account) ^_~

Centcomm 25th Feb 2014, 12:07 PM edit delete reply

May is standing to Galina's left next to hr head :D making sure the inductor does not move much. :D
Stormwind13 25th Feb 2014, 11:18 AM edit delete reply

I find it interesting that Galina didn't pick up and object to Amy using 'repaired' in the 3rd panel there. Whereas she DID object to Nurse Miller saying 'repairing' in the 2nd panel.

Is that a bias on Galina's part, expecting a human to say heal, but expecting a machine to use repair? :-) Or is it simply that she has been in too much pain to think? Galina's mind seemed to focus on it with Nurse Miller though.
cattservant 25th Feb 2014, 11:28 AM edit delete reply

She's been busy!
Centcomm 25th Feb 2014, 12:08 PM edit delete reply

Galina is way out of it an Amy gets a pass because she is JUST starting to use the functional *I* and also Galina is in a LOT of Pain or in this case the afterwash of pain..

Also Amy would have said "repair" be it human or andriod or machine she means it without hurtful intent .. Nurse Miller said it callously and uncareingly .. there is a diffrence Amy is speaking flatly reporting facts. Miller was just being a bit spiteful.
velvetsanity 25th Feb 2014, 12:31 PM edit delete reply

That matches my impression.

Amy was, in her way, saying "we'll get you fixed up soon, don't worry", while Nurse Miller was deliberately and very pointedly speaking to her as if she was just a machine. Even going so far as to suggest that her programming was defective for thinking that she's a person and for being scared. (panel 3)
Centcomm 25th Feb 2014, 12:35 PM edit delete reply

Correct .. Nurse Miller does feel a touch badly for Galina that shes so "deluded" by mean and spiteful creators and shes also embarresed that she also thought Galina was human and annoyed that her little world view was overturned .. not a nice place to be :D
Tokyo Rose 25th Feb 2014, 7:03 PM edit delete reply

I actually had written a piece of narration where Gali pointed out the use of the word "repair", yet didn't feel resentment towards Amy for the use of the term because she knew Amy wasn't using it out of callousness. I wound up cutting the narration because it didn't flow right (and because it felt like "N-word privileges").
Dragonrider 25th Feb 2014, 12:56 PM edit delete reply

I do hope not however feel I am seeing a surge in the "Humans First and Last" movement.
Centcomm 25th Feb 2014, 1:22 PM edit delete reply

Modern Luna attatudes and such are shaped by a lot of the events here. thats all I can really say here ..
Tokyo Rose 25th Feb 2014, 7:04 PM edit delete reply

I'm wondering what you mean by a "Humans First and Last" movement :)
mjkj 25th Feb 2014, 9:09 PM edit delete reply

Maybe they do not move afterwards anymore?

Timotheus 26th Feb 2014, 12:14 AM edit delete reply
I just want to comment that under the circumstances as I understand them, the use of the term "repair" for the medical procedure about to performed is absolutely correct and would be for humans or mechanicals.
Medically speaking healing is a umbrella term that can include such physical acts as repairing tissue and bone, or bio-mechanical elements. So repairing Galina is a legitimate statement.
Centcomm 26th Feb 2014, 12:24 AM edit delete reply

you are dead on - and welcome guest! both terms are "correct" Gali is just a wee bit sensitive about it right now..
Sheela 26th Feb 2014, 2:50 PM edit delete reply

I dunno, I usually 'repair' my umbrellas, not 'heal' them.

That said, it you reinforce a broken human bone with a piece of steel, it is also called a 'repair' of the bone, not a 'healing'.

This may or may not have been asked before but what happened to Galina's original savior, Edict? Is he still being upgraded? Will we see him again, maybe? :P
Centcomm 26th Feb 2014, 4:19 PM edit delete reply

Edict will be back! do not fear.. he just does not have a large part in these chapters and yes Galina has been keeping tabs on him hes been fully upgraded and refitted.
Sheela 26th Feb 2014, 4:44 PM edit delete reply

Is he smarter now ?
Centcomm 26th Feb 2014, 7:00 PM edit delete reply

perhaps!
cattservant 26th Feb 2014, 9:53 PM edit delete reply

Certainly more experienced.
RavenHawk 27th Feb 2014, 6:05 PM edit delete reply
I was wounding what happened to Edict also. But, I really want to no what happened to the Russian base. Why no one went out to claim all the equipment & materials. It's salvage now that everyone is dead their.
Centcomm 27th Feb 2014, 6:09 PM edit delete reply

Never fear ill cover what happened to everything by the time this is over :D
Johninaustin 26th Feb 2014, 8:15 PM edit delete reply
I just noted, you have little critters printed on Gali's hospital gown. Way to go with the background detail!
