I imagine, by the way, that Francis getting the girl would be terrible. Because he lives in space.

If he can't get a 10 dollar pokemon game up there, hows he going to get a girlfriend up there?

The Prototype-Boyfriend never had a personality because they just uploaded Winslow for a bit and looks aren't the same but that would be an interesting-but-cruel outcome.

Also love Hanners' hair in that strip era. So poofy.

Unpleasant experience is still experience and usually more wisdom comes from it. Even socially-aware and self-confident people rarely end up with the first person they dated. There's a learning curve.

Damn it, Marten. You are like...Half a person, you are so lanky. How do you get ALL the sexy ladies?

I feel like Marten is incapable of one night stands. I know guys like him. No sex unless you really like the lady and want to be with them for a while. So, even if she offered, he wouldn't take her up on it. Unless, of course, this is the beginning of Marten development. I hope it is. I hope he has all sorts of meaningless sex and realize hes an awesome dude and needs to just be more aggressive about what he wants in life.

Edit: I know guys that /are/ like him. Leaving one word out when talking may work, but that read as "I know guys that are hot for Marten". Hrm.

I get the feeling Marten would qualify a difference between casually dating and having sex while doing so and hooking up for one night with a woman he met a day or two ago.
You're also ignoring the time skip between Sven's offer and Padma's advances. A couple of days after being dumped, Marten probably didn't want to think about sex at all, much less random sex. A couple of months later, he thought he might be ready for a fling. Of course as we know, our favorite doormat started having feelings again and has thus pretty much proven himself constitutionally incapable of having completely casual sex.

Warning - while you were typing a new reply has been posted. You may wish to review your post.
Yep, it's going to be one of those weeks.

Wondering now if Marten and Lt. Boozles (who reminds me more of a certain D. "... or would you prefer a quick fuck on the counter" Bianchi than she does of Faye) will, in search of a make out spot, will stumble across a certain space-time researcher and Pokemon expert figuring out what to do, things are so wonderful, adding up to the coming week's awkward moment.

With Hanners and Station watching on the HoloComm, of course.

EDIT: Stream's up. I'm bad at predicting.

Marten leaving with a drunk, half dressed and probably horny Lt. Potter


........................

Nothing's gonna come of it. One of two things is likely to happen (assuming she even offers, which is not 100% certain at this point);

- Marten's gonna turn her down (most likely)

- Marten accepts but then she pukes on him, head-butts him in the junk, then passes out (less likely, but more hilarious. For us anyway).

The second option is likely to turn Marten off any thought of casual sex in the future.

Are we sure drunk PhDs make jokes like that when drunk? (intended sort-of pleonasm)
The ones I know (granted, few) make the same badmouthed regular flaps like common people. °O

Always thought the "indeciferable physics joke making drunk PhD" was a foul stereotype.

And who here still thinks Marten is a kind guy concerning possible one night stands? Have we all forgotten the Padma-arc?

I hope the space station story line finishes soon. QC is so boring lately..

Apologies to anyone who is enjoying this development, it's not personal I am just really not enjoying any of this.

 Knowing that eventually they will all have to leave the Space Station I see no point getting invested in any of the characters on the ship.

I'm intrigued as to whether you'd be able to keep this promise should it ever be inquired upon. (I am torn ... does "to inquire upon" make sense to anybody else or just me?)

For Marten's, Hanner's, Station's, Lt. Potter's and - of course - ANYBODY else's sake I hope they just get drunk(er) someplace, crack wise about some stuff and have a good time CHEERING UP MARIGOLD! Whooza!

No thanks, Mr. Hodges. It was merely an idiotic idea sprung from thought-provoking pixels forming a line of dots on my screen. That tends to overspark my synapses and "make da brain go flooid". Hence, the idea.

On a side note: I find it hilarious how this forum almost seems to "hold its breath" today. I remember there usually being much more activity around this time, especially when the comic almost exclusively featured only Marten + a girl in half-drunk conversation.

... OH the suspense!

Oh please, Marten let one thing lead to another and get some Lieutenant loving, oh please, oh please, oh please!

I mean, I doubt it'll happen. As the poll notes, Jeph has surgically removed all chances of happiness from Marten's existence with the delicacy of Jack the Ripper. But surely we're allowed our hope spots before everything inevitably crashes and burns?

Someone's productivity is going to go down with mine, gosh darn it!

Without spoilering, having seen some of the livestream last night this wasn't the strip I was expecting.

I suspect this arc will wind up sometime midweek next week, barring any need for Yelling Bird strips.

I was just thinking about characters I'm surprised didn't turn up IN SPAAACEEEE!!!!!:

Pintsize is the obvious one.  it's surprsing the little troublemaker didn't sneak along.

Then Winslowe came to mind.  He's been kind of neglected of late in general, but you'd think Hannelore would have wanted her dad to meet him.

Steve.  We know Steve has had some interesting adventures, so I wouldn't be surprised if somehow he'd been there before and knew some of the crew.

The novelty's worn off, maybe. Or we've all noted that the most furious speculation is quickly rendered moot by the next day's strip. Then again, VonKleist up there seems to think the forum is headed into its usual bonkersville now that Marten is sharing a panel or two with a new female character.

Eye of the beholder, and all that. YMMV. Whatever.
