...does that mean they will get fired on?

Evidence does not currently support this theory, Petey and the gang are jumping to conclusions. Current evidence in Outer Uuple suggests conventional sabotage, especially considering the postmortem gunshots.

Of course, metanarrative evidence now suggests that Petey is completely right.

I think there's a typo in this one.

"The disaster they're responding to to may have been the previous shot."

There are two "to"s there, and I can't find a grammatical justification for it.

If the Outer Uuple disaster was indeed a long gun shot (as many of us are suspecting) and the long gunners responsible are also pot-shotting first responders (as Petey seems to suspect), as seems to have happened to the Daysun-Tingo warship...then the Toughs wouldn't even be there, as the cowardly captain and the medic who originally called them in should have already been pot-shotted themselves.

I think the implication is that the first shot draws in a much bigger target to investigate not necessarily the actual first responders.

Though honestly I feel the AIs are reaching here. So far that behavior has happened once out of four times. Maybe out if it also occurred in the Ob'enn system. But as it is Chinook's initial guess that someone was zealously guarding their space makes equal sense. As do a lot of other possibilities. There aren't enough data points to really say.

I mean okay yeah the small shot to draw out big targets is probably what's going on, but only because narratively it doesn't make sense to devote a big strip to something that isn't relevant.

I think today's strip shows that, no, the AIs' concern is very well founded.

Well that closes that discussion.

Now the only question is "why wait so long?"

If that's the case, I wonder what the bigger secondary target would be for Razor?
