I think Abe forgot about the other planets working on the ship.

I think that's definitely not a normal rose... it's blue, an impossible color, and it doesn't seem to have wilted at all.

Destructor, would that mean that the other Strelkas get their sensory input from Original Strelka? ...what an interesting concept.

Also so curious if any of Hector's mind was coded in to that rose...if anything exists in it besides a 100% normal rose anyway

yea, i mean, i think the world they live in now is kind of completely secular, where the idea of having a soul isn't even a concept.
i was still hoping that something more miraculous would happen than "hector is a tool to be used now cuz for art to improve our society it inherently has to be sacrificial".
it's a bit too nihilist a tune for me.. but very expected for nofna.

I'm guessing it's because she's inside Discovery, and the applause happens outside, beyond a thick layer of vacuum-proof walls.

Yeah, the 'people are unique irreplaceable individuals!' part of me got kind of bent out of shape when the admiral asked if he could 'make a copy' of the machine that essentially contained Hector's soul... but this entire arc has been showing all kinds of different ways of interpreting individuality and sentience, so...

Loving the panel where all the Strelkas applaud... though I can't figure out why it's silent. Did Strelka 'mute' their applause so it wouldn't be too distracting, or what?

@Nobody: this what you when you write and leave a book post-mortem. His ways and philosophy live one as someone lives through them and carry them forward. He isn't dead: he has passed on.

i feel kinda weird about hector's body(?) just being part of a computer now. x_x
i'm guessing strelka will set the paint to something.. rose themed now?
