This was one of those science things where I wasn’t sure if the hull breach would begin to suck everything out, including Cember, Bennes, Bocce, and Ril, and all the canisters. But I figured there could be an automatic ship safety mechanism whereby any hull breach would instantaneously trigger an increase in the intensity of the gravity plates in the flooring to counteract the pull of the breach and keep things grounded and not sucked out into space.

This page is also the first showcasing of Bocce’s weird energy arm and some of its abilities. Many readers have been asking me about the arm. All I’ll say is that I love drawing it, it looks even cooler in the color series, and its origin will certainly be revealed in time.
