    So the ship AI controls the dittos?!

    What one ditto knows they all know?? The message was already broadcast? Flask looks scared.
    I love the way that ditto churned up the dust to get away.

    If the AI controls the dittos, it doesn’t know that AM has more than a few in that ball of his. Not very good control. Run, little ditto, run.

    “I’m hoping the AI has the ditto rejoining the group because the work to be done is the salvation of Blackie!”

    Well, to accomplish that, it’s probably going to need Marx’s help, because right now the ship is enabling Flask’s more destructive side.

    Run, little ditto, run!

    @JanBic

    Maybe the ship AI IS the dittos.

    Yeah, I had that thought as well.

    Still confused why an ai that was supposedly designed by ridiculously cutthroat race would have such a pleasant demeanor.

    The ship is related, it seems: Ditto-kind?
    The dittos have smarts, too. But what sort of mind?
    The ship face is ditto-like; that much is plain
    But is it a hive mind, or is there a brain?

    Flask is uneasy, and gripping the chair
    Look at her face; trauma’s visible there
    She can be symathetic, but if I had my druthers
    I’d see her cause rather less trauma to others!

    @GreyAcumen

    You think a cutthroat race would want to be talked back to by a servant?

    I was wondering the same thing myself. Perhaps, just as Marx cheated the previous owners, they had in turn cheated those who came before them? And those even earlier owners were decent types?

    This feels… really creepy. Flask is paralysed with nihilistic catatonia. She is driving the ship towards destruction, and the aritificial intelligence is trying to administer emergency psychotherapy in the hope she may countermand her order. So, it is starting to probe and massage her, to stimulate her and….
    it makes the hair stand up on the back of my neck.
    Racing through the skies to genocide. Will there be enough time for a climactic, tormented flashback that will change her mind and save the day?
    Indeed, can Captain Flask be healed?
    Wally can’t change the scarring past he has lived through, and the people who committed atrocities in his name may well all be dead now, certainly out of his reach. His only recourse is never to give the satisfaction of victory that kind of person. To stay sane, he can never help Flask for her own advantage, But one way or another, he may have to.
    Petey loved Flask, but now she has grown away from him . He knows her secrets. The secrets are the key to the horrors of what she is doing. The horrors must be stopped, ergo the secrets must come out.
    Linda hates being alive in her new form, and she hates the Topsiders who betrayed her, but the one thing left to her that she can understand any sense in doing is to protect her son. The ship is on its way to kill him.
    Marx seemed omniscient and omnipotent, certainly feckless and dismissive. Now, his cocksureness could possibly be starting to look misplaced. As was once said: “One of these days you’re going to make a mistake, and I want to be around when it happens.”


    Oh, Mister Neathery, you have put all the pieces in place on the board, now comes the end play. And it is exquisite!
    Write on!

    Flask doesn’t have to crash the ship into the city dome. She only has to reverse the pic-up chutes anddrop some junk on it. Then she can move on to the next one.
    I wonder how Petey would react if she tried to drop the transporter?
