The idea here is that the energy shields around the Khoruysa Brimia fry anything that touches them, so Ril has to cut the shields before the crew hits it. In the original script, I focused on this a bit more and amped up the anxiety and impending electrocution of the falling crew and the last-second timing of the shut-off. But when it came time to draw the sequence, I found that it would have taken too many panels to really convey all that, and that would have made the fall seem to take a long time, when it actually occurs in seconds. So I opted to cut it down in order to keep the pace of events quick and chaotic.
