At least that's what it looks like

Honestly, I'm currently a bit lost and can't seem to see just where the plot is heading and which parts have had Anton Chekov's approval stamp and which ones are more of a non-existing fish thing.

Though I must admit, this happens to me a lot when reading this comic, has been for nearly 17 years. Seriously, how does His Malevolence manage to stay fresh after all this time? It's amazing.

The true Author must write. It's a compulsion.

I figure this has to be significant eventually, as there's been a whole lot of "screen" time spent so far on this bit of Chekov's Shoulder-Arms Rifle Drill.

So far my suspicions run mostly to "subversion attempt" - that the new hires are, collectively, some sort of four-armed Trojan Horse.

Hey, a huge amount of screen time went to the whole "we can use ship gravitics to alter the projectile trajectory of shots, so we can now repel borders" without ever actually making it into the plot.

Para and Petey need to have some dialog together. Just because.

Maybe.


But I'll grant you that's my read on it as well.

Well that did lead to Tagon saying "I wish we had to repel boarders" and then getting his wish, so it wasn't completely wasted.

Anyway, I'm more annoyed by the fact that, thus far in the book, I don't care about what happens to any of these new characters.

There's a couple of possible issues. One being that Tagon doesn't know how loyal they are to each other- hence his emphasis on them being part of a larger team now. The other possible issue, which is related, is that Andy is their superior officer. The Toughs fairly regularly need to go into seemingly-suicidal situations. Can Andy order Tandersil inot such a situation?
