Thank you to everyone for your support and your understanding during what was, to put it mildly, a bit of a rough patch over the holidays. We’re all settling in to the “new normal” and we should now be back on schedule.

EDIT: I almost forgot! This weekend I will be in the Dealers Room with my Galaxion books and buttons and so on at the science fiction and fantasy convention, Immortal Confusion, in Detroit, Michigan. This is a brand new show for me, so I’m looking forward to seeing what it’s like. If you’re in the area, please come and say hello!

And here we go with Chapter Ten! It’s been a long time since we were back on the ship, and I’m glad to be here. If you’re feeling confused over how we got from the end of Chapter Nine to here (or, I suppose, the end of Chapter Eight, which was the last time we saw Scavina Nelson), that’s OK. All will be explained as the chapter progresses.

Dr Lockwood, I feel compelled to add, is a new character who is actually an old character– she played a larger part in the pre-webcomic version of Galaxion, but in aid of moving the story along I have kept her out of the limelight until now. And yeah, I’ve taken the opportunity to change her up a bit, so if you’ve read the old version but the image doesn’t quite ring a bell, that’s why. :-)
