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.
Sky: Not officially that we know of. But the rich and powerful do exercise more influence over your governments than we’d allow. They don’t want our tech or materials anywhere near your planet. Especially if it might prove the existence of extraterrestrials.
Gabe: To avoid panic.
Sky: To avoid our post-scarcity economy from shaking up their false-scarcity grip on capitalism. If they can’t control the resources, they lose power and influence. They started shutting us out about 8 years ago with market restrictions. Since our agents can’t prove the source of the precious metals and gemstones we normally provided, it’s made it difficult for them to raise the hard currency to buy what we need.
Gabe: What could you need from us?
Sky: To start, you make the fastest computers in this part of the galaxy. That’s why we’re here, but buying up a lot of music CDs, DVDs, and books to resell back home is usually a good investment.
Gabe: Seriously? Can’t you just download all that?
Sky: Seriously no. We don’t know how they got off world, but nobody messes with the Orion branches of the RIAA and MPAA.
