I wish I had the time to do something like this! I share your disappointment with the lack of facial expressions (some missions your BOff will pop up in the window with an expression (angry Tac in PvP, scared/concerned Sci in some story missions, etc). I always take screenshots of those.
Thank you.

I've actually discovered a few that do facial animations with the emote. However, the animations are generally over-the-top for the style I'm going for. It's like having a broadway actor on tv show - very capable broad stroke movements but the fine nuances of the screen need tweaking.

Anyways, time to take my niece to daycare and work on philosophy homework. Hopefully, I don't insert Sartre and Hume references for no ******n reason - though that's where my mind is at right now.

New, Full Issue!
(=| Click here to read Issue #4: "A Warm Place, Pt. I" |=)
side-notes:
I figured no Weekly Mission means there needs to be some Trek this weekend. Here it is; enjoy!

Hopefully, I can get Issue #5 out by the start of the next weekly series.
Fun-Fact:
For those counting, not a single weapon has been fired so far in the series.

Work is coming along on Issue #5. I was surprised that I finished an issue yesterday.

I'm curious about how far you have thought about taking this comic?

Do you have a plan or are you randomly adding additions when you have time?

Do the first officer and chief medical officer look the same or is it just me?

Cmdr. Reynolds serves in both roles. Before war, the ship was intended as a biological survey vessel.

I thought of calling it the USS Beagle but doubted many would get the reference. The klingon captain says "Silence little bird!" in Klingon - which is a reference to Darwin's voyage on the Beagle, studying the beaks of birds at one point when he formulated his magnum opus.

I'm pretty sure geeks and also literature majors would enjoy the clever allusion - done in klingon.

Right now I've kept on track for a new issue every 2-3 weeks.

Once I get a series done, I might make a free, full-res compilation (which would average around 54 pages). Sending a few high-quality copies down to Cryptic would be cool and I've self-published before (using Lulu.com for printing copies).

Thanks. I'll keep it coming. I at least want to finish the first series by the New Year.

Fun Game:
Can you spot the two cloaked BoPs in Issue #4?
requires downloading the full-res version from GoogleDocs for image clarity to see it

Dang. The new Drozana Station looks nothing like the old one (used in the comics). I might want to retcon it but I loved the lighting on the map in Issue #3.

I've been delayed in finishing the next issue (#5) due to midterms this past week.

However, my schedule opened up a fair bit. Hopefully, I can have something out Saturday.
