Your Writer: Jon Kilgannon This is where all that orbital mechanics information from a week ago comes into play. "An unbound solar orbit at interstellar velocity" basically means that, if the Qin were to continue on its current course with no use of its engines, the ship would whip past the Sun and out into interstellar space never to be heard from again.

That's fast.

Your Artist: Mark Sachs I think it is safe to say that no webcomic out there, with the exception of Penny Arcade of course, has more orbital mechanics than MoS.

I also note that in addition to that honor, this comic is now the #1 result on Google for the search phrase "orbiting brain lasers." That can't help but be a good thing.
