Episode Notes

I made a bathroom. I actually made a loo! Apparently, it's the only bathroom on Tranquility Base and it only has one cubicle.

Transcript

Panel 1: Captain Slog is sitting at a retro-style computer display, typing his journal.
Captain Slog (Journal Entry):
Journal: Captain Slog
Stardate: 3.14159265
Work is progressing on fixing the monorail extension mishap. It was not only an embarrassment, but also a pain in the {{obscured text}} for all concerned.
Panel 2: The journal continues.
Captain Slog (Journal Entry):
Today a new crisis was narrowly averted.
While on a routine mission this A.M., I was incapacitated by a potentially dangerous mechanical failure!
Panel 3: The journal continues.
Captain Slog (Journal Entry):
I was extricated from this dangerous situation thanks to the swift actions of Ensign Hudson, whom I have recommended for a mention in despatches. This young Ensign shows promise!
Panel 4: The scene shifts to a public bathroom on Tranquility Base, where it becomes apparent what the "dangerous situation" was.

Captain Slog:
Good man!
