That actually reminds me of something I noticed earlier: in 3rd millennium apparently they have nearly no chairs, because characters stand around a lot. It's something I find weird. Why do they stand around like that? I can understand standing while looking at tactical screen or something, but engineers and scientists apparently also stand while working. It's weird. Prolonged standing is tiring, and I can't imagine how could anyone focus on demanding task after standing for few hours. There were exceptions, but those were exceedingly rare.

We're just finishing a fad for standing desks in today's business world, so maybe the 31st century still has fads.


Could also be because it's easier to get a sense of action and/or tension if the characters are standing instead of sitting.

Personally, I'm going to go with "It's easier to draw" myself xD

1. Generated gravity is set a little lower

2. Less time in the gym spent exercising.

Turns out that's the "really really hard thinking" chair.

If Tagon pulls this off he's going to need another addition to his file in the recommended reading for naval intelligence folder.

They have inertics and gravitics. If those fail, a chair won't save you from becoming strawberry jam.

As for Tagon's strategizing, they have a captured missile cloud.

I'm thinking the answer is to abscond with the corpses to a safer venue for resurrection.

Or, bootstrap the corpse-recovery using one-button tools.
The engineer reworks the hammock so their fabbers can make it...
Then the engineer wakes up the next competent individual...
Then the engineer and that one next competent individual pick two more competent individuals to wake up...

Meanwhile the Toughs leave, confident the job is complete, assistance has been rendered, and they are no longer needed.

We are still in part one. When do we go to part two?

Eh, probably just an oversight by Howard - I have some vague recollections of the "current part" lagging before.
