Can you spot Zan in the second panel? He’s a wee little speck standing upside-down on the Pathfinder‘s underside. He’s pretty easy to miss, isn’t he?
And, sigh, as carefully as I planned out the distance traveled and the benchmark stars, I have a growing suspicion I will have to change it again. I’m really better off being nice and vague about the scale of the Galaxioverse, it gives me room for flexibility. (You’ll notice how I’ve never pinned down a year when all this takes place, either!)
