I guess Kathryn believes that they need to be incredibly obvious about what they (collectively, and their representative in particular) are carrying.
Possibly (definitely, from what we've seen from our POV) because the locals are incapable of grasping "subtle".

The locals appear to believe that subtle means making threats instead of jumping straight to shooting.

Reminds me of a fun-size version of Larry Niven's Kzinti--"You scream and you leap."

Thinking Kzinti feint and pounce instead.

Which works a good bit better . . . but not enough better.

I always thought a Kzinti being subtle was screaming after they started the leap.




And am I the only one who really dislikes what Tailor has done with Peri's coat?

I can't say I hate it. I completely understand the choice to cut the lower arms free.

The coat was -way- too big before, and the drape and pull that there would have been between the arms would have fouled all sorts of fine movement up.
She was wearing a blue puffy bag before. Now she looks like shes an Officer in a properly fitted jacket. Maybe one with strange taste in clothing, but it don't look like something she's just randomly looted out of someone else's closet and is playing dress up in.

To me, it looks like something someone threw together at the last minute when they realized their costume wasn't working. Which is exactly what it is, so kudos to Howard on this art.

Subtle is asking for a sandwich to go.
