Wow, okay - in the original Cosmos version of this story, Gene spent a grand total of 3 strips onboard the USF Alexis (one on the last page, and the last two rows of panels on this page): no wonder I needed to bulk it out with extra material! Still, I'm glad I did, as - being a Synergy story, of course - it allowed me to add some backstory to Captain Celia Brooks, the Alexis (including the sweet establishing shot in the first panel), and exactly what they were doing when Mr. Ellis so rudely interrupted them. Ahh, political summits: always a starship captain's favourite responsibility. The widescreen 'Gene got everything dang blowed up' panel is a complete rework of what was in the original Cosmos strip: here, the panel was regular sized and.... well, let's be honest here.... a squashed-up, crammed-in mess that gave you no actual idea as to what had happened (partly due to the amount of space occupied by the dialogue). Soooo yeh it got swapped out for something better....
