Summarizing the important parts of the last three pages for the benefit of the crew, the passengers, and the audience. West took drugs and the Daedalus is about to go quite a bit faster.

The final version of this page deviates slightly from the original script – West’s overt mention of amphetamines addresses any lingering clarity issues from the previous page, and panel two was revised to flow better and to reference new information, though Thad’s probably wondering what West means by “Templar intel.”

All hands are on deck – Ornix is in the scene, barely. He’s right where he was earlier, appearing as a tiny slice of shoulder almost visible in the full-sized version of panel two. He’s not visible at webscale and has no dialogue, so he hasn’t been tagged as appearing on this page.

Next: the end of this scene, and the beginning of the next!
