Book 16: Big, Dumb Objects — Part III

Note: On the subject of footnotes, this one is a bit more authoritative than the one referenced in the strip above. Authoritative, and almost certainly reliable, since you can totally trust footnotes.


BALA-AMIN: We've explored vast swaths of the galaxy. The only thing capable of making mass extinctions happen on the scale of Fermi's Paradox is intelligent life.

BALA-AMIN: Captain Landon?

LANDON: Still parsing.

BALA-AMIN: Take your time. I bet you've got millions of years before we all kill each other.
