Oh good, he thinks they’re here to help Cort. I suppose having them fighting each other raises our chances of getting out of here. Wonder how this guy would react if he knew they were actually here to kill Cort. I suppose he’d probably still fight them just to protect the people on the station.

“Between us and that Sentinel”
He thinks they’re there to help Grin, not Cort. Though he’s probably willing to obliterate Cort if he is being even trivially threatening.

I’d probably use the word “clusterfuck”, but snafu will suffice.

I’d say it’s heading rapidly towards FUBAR.

Getting the feeling that the option to give the base a new orifice will come up sooner or later.

Great idea. Attacking the FED’s seems to work out great for Cort. Now he’s associated with the bounty-hunters, and the FED’s paint a great target on his back. Yupp. We haven’t at all, forced the hand of squid-face, his old pal, who wanted a peaceful solution, and will now instead force him to try and gun us down, and take the starcaster.

What a train wreck.

Given that they’ve already melted through several critical systems, I’m not sure that using “threats” to get past the Fed would have been a big improvement there…

Which is exactly why i was opposed to melting through systems from the start…
I’ve been solidly in the corner of “don’t force squid-face´s hand” from the start…

Why do you continue to assume Squidface is an ally, when all Squidface would do is bring us to his bosses, who for all we know would kill us to get the Starcaster while Squidfaces watches and does nothing like the good little soldier he appears to be. Screw Squidface, he’s bad news.

Squid-face was the only FED not willing to just shoot on sight. Clearly our best shot at not getting a huge target panted on Cort’s back, that everyone wants to aim for. As long as he could have been strung along, manipulated, or negotiated with, we would at least have been in safe space, in FED “controlled” space.
Now, everyone wants us dead.

Except Cort is unaware of the meta conversation that we, the readers, know. Specifically, page 15 in this comic shows they have surveillance on Cort, which he misreads as a manhunt and is reacting accordingly.

*which he correctly as a manhunt because it is a manhunt and is reacting accordingly.

Fixed that for you.

We have no indication that things would have worked out otherwise if he hadn’t attacked.

It is likely that a “threat” would have meant to be captured, in my opinion. Likewise, if he had just “done nothing”. It is likely that the bounty-hunters would then kill the person he guards. And then would inevitably capture him.

Absolutely nothing on this page has anything to do with our decision to create a distraction on the station. These are The Grin’s goons and they would have showed up even if we walked into Federation custody like a bunch of idiots. Ulogg assuming it’s a rescue would happen anyway because he doesn’t currently know that we’ve attacked any Feds. We knocked out one officer, but Ulogg doesn’t know that yet and still assumes The Grin’s goons are Cort’s goons. Honestly, it’s getting really old listening to you people cry about every little thing, even if it’s not related to… Read more »

*Break a wine glass* There is your peace.

Ulogg saw to that when he associated Cort with the space mafia’s warmongering against the federation.

You will have an easier time drinking from that cup than bringing Cort back into the fold now.

I am curious as to where the Grin came from? Was he docked on the Dreadstorm? That implies that he had help. We know that the feds are corrupted to the bone, so I would not be supprised if Port Magcannons has a malfunction…

He came from the same snow-planet as the heroes, on the same stolen cruiser he was already using.

And just think, this all could have been avoided if people still used cell phones and Quell had just dialed Cort’s private number direct over and over again until he listened.

Maybe it is like the Honorverse and there is no FTL communication and ship must relay the messages from system to system.
