Last page of this scene.  I wanted to duplicate a particular shot from the film for this one, but it wouldn't have worked for a single page (and in any case would have required me to do a third angle of the ship just for one shot).  So instead it looks more like the establishing shot of the Enterprise in a standoff with the Borg Cube.

I'm realizing in retrospect that I haven't revealed enough about Moontear's status to make this page's dialogue credible, due to having removed a line about her being a baroness and heiress of a hugely important galactic conglomerate from an earlier page.  So she DOES actually have the influence to bring a complaint to the top of the station's chain of command.  She just hasn't realized yet that it wouldn't be a very good idea right now.

The image of Gracenote looking forlornly through a porthole as the ship is brought in was one of the first I came up with for this issue.  Although I keep waffling on the subject of whether Halteraan was actually her home (and even if it was, it wouldn't be her birth world), she's the most empathetic of my characters, so it's natural that she'd take it harder than the others.  The spiderweb-window is the perfect frame for maudlin looks.

Moontear's scoring high on "disagree and commit" so far. But will she bring evidence to support her position that they should not Smooze civilian worlds? And will she commit to the final decision no matter what it is? Only time will tell.

I keep reading your comments in the voice of the radio commentator from 'Legend of Korra' for some reason...

Great. Now I can't read my own comments in my voice.

"EqD likes to link to the ends of scenes rather than the starts of them"

usually they are 20 pages behind ... until they catch up by posting pages daily

For a while they posted every one, then they stopped posting me at all for about three weeks, and now they post every fourth or fifth page, but almost always the end of a scene. I'm hoping they'll post Sunday's, since it'll be the last page of this issue...

Anger, fear, and sadness do kind of make you forget what might be - prudent.
