An online comic about Ace. A young geek that's too nice for his own good. All he wants is a regular life and a regular girlfriend. But he knows that isn't going to happen. – CGI – Adult situations. Artistic nudity. Not suitable for children or Fundies.
Rusty: Ruby is ready for departure at any time if you desire. Your flight certification does not include fighters, but she really only requires a “warm body” to serve as a commander. However, I must insist that you leave your sidearm.
Farah: Night landing, you said? Australia would be good. I've always wanted to go there. But, I need to find a control pad so I can make my shipsuit less conspicuous on Terra. And some small power cells for when I might not be getting enough sunlight to keep it charged.
Rusty: Ruby has those in her stores. I might also add that she has a small fabricator on board. It has the capacity to produce a bio-degradable stunner, and several items of outerwear to your specifications.
Farah: That seems strangely convenient.
Rusty: It is part of her standard load-out. Survival gear, water packets, and emergency rations are stored on board as well. If you do not intend to return with Ruby, and plan to keep a low profile, you may find it further convenient that the food and water are Terran supplied and packaged. If you wish, we could interact in my lounge while you consider. I have prepackaged pastries that I understand are good when warmed. Their shelf-life is shorter than my supply of snack cakes, and once this mission is complete, I will probably not be permitted to remain on board. I could put some in a carton for you to take along. They would make good energy food.
Farah: No, you're right, I should get going. I don't want to keep Ruby any longer than necessary. If my cock-up isn't put right, she'll be needed very soon. I think I would like some of your pastries, though. And you wouldn't happen to have any instant cocoa with the little marshmallows?
Rusty: I will include a generous supply.
