Last time I was at the beach; this time I’m at a lake. Will large bodies of water never cease meddling with Larp Trek’s update schedule?
Anyway, the computer where Larp Trek’s assets live isn’t in the same state as me right now, so time for another wrist-cramping, face-mangling pen-and-ink comic. I feel like the visual gag of Geordi putting on sunglasses would have benefitted greatly from any sort of preemptive sketching on my part to figure out the composition, but, yes: lake.
I actually kind of like that second Data, as far as these things go, but on the balance it’s not exactly clear that that first Data is actually even supposed to be Data. ADVENTURES IN LINE ART.
Anyway, probably some actual traditional Larp Trek again next week. For now I’m gonna go back to ignoring the internet and drinking beer and playing bluegrass and pretending that the water in the lake isn’t incredibly cold to try and fool other people to also jumping in.
LOOK AT THE THING LEVAR IS DOING
Also stick around at the end of the pitch video for the Brent Spiner cameo.
Also also: callback strip.
Decided to turn these into proper last-minute valentines, so, here you go:
Unexpectedly busy morning over here in the 24th century, someone spotted some pre-post-scarcity and everybody’s running around like non-replicated chickens with their heads cut off, you know how it is. See y’all Monday.
Ain’t comin’ together, we’ll get back to it Monday.
Consolation prize: a friend this morning, chatting with me about Wes, proposed the concept of “Seven Minutes in Jeffries Tube Eleven” as what adolescent kids on the Enterprise play if they aren’t Wes because Wes never gets invited because Wes.
One of those days, folks.
To distract you, consider the possibility of a Japanese snack product called Spocky.
And it’s just silly technical shit that’s my fault, I forgot to update my DNS when I knew I was gonna need to so we had an hour or two of it just not being there and depending on where you are in the internet it might take a bit to snap back to happiness. Hopefully shit will return to form soon enough; if you’re reading this, that’s a pretty good sign, obviously, though I’m trying to figure out why I’m not getting comic images loading still.
OH MY GOSH GUYS IT’S A THANKSGIVING UNMIRACLE
THERE’S TOO MUCH FOOD AND FAMILY AND STUFF
MONDAY SOUNDS LIKE A GOOD DAY TO POST THE NEXT COMIC
HOPE YOU’RE ALL HAVING GOOD FOOD COMAS
BTW ALL CAPS IS THE NEW THING, ALL THE KIDS ARE DOING IT, I DON’T EVEN HAVE LOWERCASE KEYS ON MY KEYBOARD ANYMORE
I’ve got my head buried deep in an unrelated project and I just keep not getting my train of thought switched over to Larp Trek this morning. Back on Weds.
Here is a conciliatory trek gif, of Uhura pulling off a textbook double-butt-pat.
Not sure what’s up exactly but DH/WP is throwing a terse error when I try and get the comic uploaded. Looks like it may be a disk issue of some sort, but who knows. Put in a support ticket, will get the comic up when I can.
Spoiler alert: Riker is kind of a dick.
