Episode Notes

Isaac and Major Tom's journey to Cynaptix IV is turning into one of those road movies where everything that can go wrong, does go wrong!

That's the most ridiculous ship I could find. It's another one of the Alien Conquest theme UFOs (Alien Striker). It's probably not really meant to go into outer-space, just buzz around in atmosphere. Oh well.

Transcript

Panel 1: Isaac, Major Tom and the Mechanic are standing in front of an unseen spaceship.
Isaac:
What a piece of junk!
Mechanic:
She may not look like much, but she's got it where it counts, kid.
Panel 2: The spaceship is reveal as being a tiny, one-man, sit-on, exposed to the elements type craft.
Mechanic:
By which I mean, she's all you can afford.
Panel 3: As Isaac begins to complain, Major Tom puts his hand on his mouth to stop him
Isaac:
What. A. Piece. Of. {{muffled}} Mmphff
Major Tom:
Can I assume that she's completely space-worthy?
Mechanic:
She has a certificate and everything.
Panel 4:
Major Tom:
Fine, we'll take her.
Isaac:
We will?
Mechanic:
I'll even throw in a couple of space suits.
Panel 5: Major Tom is piloting the craft, which has left the Service Asteroid, wearing a white space-suit. Isaac, is clinging on to the back of the craft, wearing a bright pink spacesuit.
Isaac:
I've never worn women's clothing before.
There's not much room down below, but the built-in brassiere is surprisingly comfy…
…there's hardly any chaffing!
Major Tom:
Oh frell me, I did not just hear that!
