...did he faint or is he dazed?


And where did that wheely chair come from? Does it have little impulse engines on it?

More like still in shock.

That's the bridge's operator chair. See it here: http://www.schlockmercenary.com/2017-11-20

I noticed that, too. About the only time I've seen someone go wall-eyed is when they're well and truly dazed, perhaps with a mild concussion on top.

It might be the Tough's shock-troops and medic.
These cat-people definitely don't like aliens. The Fobottor(sp?) are a bit alien, and very tall. The insectoid aliens must be terrifying. And he just had one talking about rebuilding his spine crawl over his captor, down her arm, and by the looks of it used him as a rope to the deck.

I like the bugs, and that might have creeped me out.

EDIT:
Eiiither that or shiplord whats-his-face is committing suicide, and they're about to need Neeka to un-dead him. I'd say he took damage from the throw, but I kinda expect Neeka to notice that. They've been hypercompetent in everything else.

Ah. They must be pretty confident in their inertics. I can imagine that guy desperately scrabbling while he rolls away from his terminal.

I also imagine them having little drives on the chairs so they could scoot around deck or spin really fast when the captain isn't looking.

That's my hot-take. that kinda snap would definitely do neck (spinal) damage at the least.

"Don't leave yet" suggests, to me, that some dismembering is still on the program.

His arrogance definitely isn't tracking properly.

At the very least, that snap maneuver tumbled his gyros.

Of course it is. He's only been de-coated so far. The arm-ripping comes next.

She probably saw the murder in Peri's eyes.

Whatever in the suit that compensates for for impacts and weird gravity probably reaches out to whatever the user is holding, otherwise aiming weapons would get rather awkward. Fuzzy was probably saved by tech designed to make it more convenient to put holes in people like him.

The quick changes in gravity was probably nauseating. It might be like whiplash or something so the wonky eyes are just him rebooting.

Stand by for an arms reduction negotiation in 5, 4, 3, 2...

Followed by Neeka conducting a short arm inspection.

Under the circumstances, I might have ordered Neeka to return to the ship before the ... arms reduction. But no, living to remember this would be more painful.

Be tempting to suggest that they turn over all off world corpsicles and leave.

No, then the other guys will win. They should go in with Biotic Rifles blazing and save ALL the corpsicals (while adding spaceworthy perks so they survive without further intervention. )

Terrible word play is it's own punishment.
