Sue is god…interesting plot twist…
Huzzah! I somehow feel this is not the end of the intrepid young Ensign powered by the heart of the TARDIS and rolled in candy and light fluffy pastry yet tempered like the blade of a Klingon Bat’leth forged in the fires of Vulcan passion and educated by the Talosians and Ferengi nuns……wait a second….something is fishy here…..not quite right…..ah I forgot to mention the ubiquitous fishnets and ever present hair dye kit……
Anywho, I thoroughly enjoyed this strip and learned that Google Chrome doesn’t spell check Klingon, Vulcan or my dubious spelling of ubiquitous.
actually im thinking…what if that isn’t God but rather Q posing as God? Q did pose as God in the TNG episode Tapestry and sending a half-Q girl to annoy the $**T outta the Enterprise crew isn’t exactly against his M.O.;)
Here’s hoping that Ensign Sue ends up in the TNG universe!
Worf would kill her, no way she would last. He would find a way.
That was great. The Ensign Sue adventure is just beginning…
Cracked me up! ; )
But it does raise the Shatner-esque question, “What does God need with an ensign?”
Okay, even for Trek, that’s contrived bu!!$#!+.
It was funny up until then.
IN “Tapestry” did Q pose as God, or did God pose as Q? ;)
Perhaps Q is realy Sybok or the other way around
God is apparently delusional.
So what? God said the universe needs Ensign Sue? Why can’t it be God? Why does it always have to be an omnipotent alien posing as God. I mean really. Even Steven Hawking said there was room for God in science. Give it a rest. Some of us like to believe He is out there.
I’m guessing she’s going BSG next, by the little infiniti symbol on the last frame…I haven’t been able to make myself watch the last few episodes of Caprica by the way, hopefully it becomes interesting in the next half. (Off topic, I know, sorry)
God has three fingers and no face? I smell a new religion being born.
God looks however one pictures Him to look. His face is not visible because to look upon the face of God would kill a puny human. Ensign Sue can see Him because she’s dead. We can’t see Him because we’re still among the living. That was a very thoughtful touch by the artist.
13 – It
14..well, Sue is half-deity, you know….
I meant 14. Oops. I’m just human after all.
#13, 14…, that is God in the last panel. No beard, not a man, just a meta Mary Sue (note rainbow in hair and infinity symbol on cheek); because of course, Mary Sues are images of their writers.
So, the question is………what adventures will ensue with Ensign Sue?
Oh god, she’s god!
I think it is time to start praying to Sha Ka Ree and hope Sybok will be our savior.
Or is Q playing god again?
#4 As she is going to be the Emissary, I’m guessing she’s hopping to DS9. But Worf can still kill her.
as the dyslexic atheist once opined, “THERE IS NO DOG!”
If you actually read these comments down this far you should go to the pot luck site cause issue 26 is up (at least it was this morning when i looked)
By the way, if anyone isn’t understanding this comic – and especially this particular strip – I would encourage you to do some research on “Mary Sues”. Here’s a Wiki article:
I really had no idea what a Mary Sue was, but this comic makes much more sense once you’re familiar with the concept. And, having dabbled in the idea of fan fiction a couple times, I totally understand the issue of writing oneself into a plot and make oneself larger than life.
There needs to be a side story about the Starfleet benefits department making monthly payments to the spouses and/or children of the deceased red unitform wearing ensigns vaporized over the years
Umm… This says Ensign Sue Must Die #25, but strip #24 is shown. #25 is scary-funny!
Thanks for the link! It’s been a fun diversion.
One more after this– I already saw it– but yeah, she’s not done yet!
I want to see Mary Sue with Data.
