The Transcript For This Page

Panel 1
The Dryhaven, with Causa Sui still tucked in underneath, is at station near an asteroid roughly ten times its size. We can see a force-field bubble enclosing the asteroid as well as the ships. We can see several small flashes on the bubble. The local brown-dwarf star is large enough to show a good-sized disc, but is out-shined by its sister red-dwarf 100 gigameters distant.
Hugo (from Dryhaven):You weren't exaggerating about the 'chaotic' nature of this space.
Shlack (from Dryhaven): Without our re-enforced shielding, we'd soon be cut to shreds by all these high-speed micro-liths.

Panel 2
The workshop aboard Dryhaven. Hugo is fussing over a gadget resting on a worktable as Shrack, Krasp, and Murphy look on.
Hugo: Krasp, I'm sorry, but this pento-matrix slicer is still not up to the specs I require.
Krasp: That was my third attempt, Doctor. It looks right to me, and I don't know what else I can do for it.

Panel 3
Closer two-shot of Hugo and Shrack.
Hugo: This is a waste of time. I have equipment aboard my ship that will serve.
Hugo: I must return to Causa Sui immediately.
Shrack: I'm afraid I can't allow that right now.

Panel 4
Another angle that show Krasp and Murphy in the background, looking on.
Hugo: 'Can't allow it'?
Hugo: I had been under the impression that we were guests here, not captives.
Shlack: Conditions here are too hazardous for you to space-walk back to your vessel.

Panel 5
Another exterior shot of the two vessels near the asteroid. A harvester craft from the Dryhaven is at work on the asteroid's surface, cutting into the megalith. The force-field bubble surrounds all, and we see several flashes across the barrier's surface.
Shlack (from Dryhaven): Once we've completed our harvesting runs and return to the comet, it will be safe for you to disembark.
Hugo: But that will be several days from now! And this project has dependencies ...
Panel 6
Group shot of Shlack, Hugo, Krasp, Murphy. Shlack is laying down the law; Hugo and Murphy look unhappy, and Krasp looks uncomfortable.
Shlack: This discussion is over, Doctor Galvéz.
Shrack: I'm the master of this vessel and I aim to be fair and reasonable but my word is law here. Am I clear?
Hugo: As crystal … Captain.
