Comic #3567

1 Paris: So, our options are either starve getting to Triana, or not be able to stop when we arrive?
1 Spanners: Right.
2 Iki Piki: Marooned with no hope of rescue! This reminds me of that classic Earth novel, The Martian, by Andy Weir.
3 Iki Piki: Except for one major difference.
3 Paris: What's that?
4 Iki Piki: The circumstance that got us into this mess is way more realistic than that Martian dust storm.
4 Spanners: True, that.
