Merry (slightly late) Christmas everybody! No dedicated Christmas strip this year, so here’s a favourite from Christmas past.
Sol: I can’t believe this! You mean you never passed the Basic!?
Tachelock: I’ve never even attempted it.
Sol: But it’s mandatory for all gate residents!
Tachelock: Yeah… I did keep getting these increasingly angry messages about that when I first arrived.
Tachelock: Then after a few months they just stopped arriving and I figured that was the problem all sorted.
Sol: So that means you’ve no idea about… about the evacuation procedures or what to do if there’s a fire or a decompression event or-
Tachelock: Sol, I’m fireproof and can operate just fine in hard vacuum.
Tachelock: If there’s an emergency, I’ll do what I always do – wing it and see what happens.
