Vog: I can break these cuffs!
Dr. Bunnigus: You can't break those cuffs.
Vog: GNNNGGHH...

It's suddenly a lot easier to understand how Vog's civilization collapsed.

nVog likely also remembers being a lot stronger than he likely is now.

After all, nVog's a few millennia older than he's currently remembering.

I'm guessing he used to have soldier boosts. however, I'm not certain if he lost the boosts 10 million years ago, in the last few months, or both.

I'm sure he had two sets of boosts: the boosts from way back when, and the boosts from being in the Toughs.

I don't think they had the equipment and knowledge to boost his species at all. Bunnigus first examined him in detail when they were stealing Xinchub on Yoming (http://www.schlockmercenary.com/2007-08-30), and they got captured (and lost Vog) immediately afterward.

Hmm. Although his species might have been one that Petey developed a version of LRU for. I remember that he developed one for most, if not all of the Toughs. I can't remember if Vog had one.

He definitely has the ability to get LRU'd; his brain is amorph and Petey has an amorph reader. It's probably not quite the same process as normal LRU because that works on relatively baseline humans that haven't had their brains replaced with amorph but the principle is the same.

Bradicor are not listed here. Two strips later, Col deHans is told Vog is his new boss.

Reading those earlier strips is kinda sad. Vog was so hopeful he'd be a positive influence and Emm and crew...and ended up getting mind-raped in the worst way.

Given everything I'm not sure if he was the one mind-raped or if they decided to go to his home planet and pick up a few more to... experiment on. Though in all likely hood they did both, after all its not a good idea to risk destroying your only specimen of a type.

Doc Buniigus seems convinced the Bradicor in their custody is actually Vog, or at least used to be Vog. I'm presuming she's that sure because she ran all the usual genetic and other medical tests to physically confirm his identity. If she's been just assuming she's got Vog without confirmation, then that would make her incredibly stupid.

Personally, I can see her running tests on Vog while he was still in the stasis tube just in the hope of finding out it wasn't him, so she could hold out hope that he was Out There Somewhere unharmed.

As I recall, there are seriously four Bradicor in existence. If it isn't Vog it's someone else they know.

It is kinda immaterial if it is Vog or not...
He is not the same person or the same agenda.

This entity knows how to stir the pot to get two polities to fight.
The memories he has displayed indicates that was probably around during the original teraport wars and probably knows of the original einoffa. Who's to say that he liked them or not? He's not going to admit anything now. So his intelligence value is poor.

His knowledge of the past is his coin to power and survival and he seems to know this...
It didn't take him long to stir trouble which I think means he is practiced and intelligent.

You have an entity who thinks young and likes to fight versus the original Vog who has seen it all and decided that it was better to live and let live.

Get him off the ship and put him on ice until your current project is complete.

The Toughs are large enough to have multiple projects going at once. It seems like reviving Vog was Dr. Bunnigus's.

That said, it's clear that this contingency was not very well planned for, if at all.

And… CAPTAIN ON DECK!

I guess she's turning custody over because of bad luck. And the fact that Breya probably will side with the toughs (and Petey) in the end.
