Comic #3153

1 Serron: No, really, how do we know we're in our original timestream and not some alternate one?
2 Paris: The computer scans incoming media and cross-checks against our ship's extensive banks of historical information.
3 Serron: And why do spaceships routinely carry extensive historical data anyway?
4 Paris: In case we come across an alien planet with a culture that bears an uncanny resemblance to a period in Earth's history.
4 Serron: Ah, it all makes sense.
