This page was a real chore… practically no story content but lots of boring things to draw over and over again. I should have edited it better.
Oh, and a note about Albee’s presence: Albee didn’t transfer to the Nefertiti, she’s just there for the shakedown cruise to make sure the ship gets off to a good start. After it’s over she’ll return to the Akhenaten. I’ll try to find somewhere in the comic itself to clarify that.
A couple story reminders: Why they’re visiting Lanour. Lanour’s previous appearance (WARNING: This link will take you to Issue 7).
