    This has got to be the weirdest method of space travel I’ve ever heard of.

    Ever read Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy? This is very unwierd compared to Bistro travel.

    The “Heart of Gold” travelled through all points in the universe simultaneously thanks to the science of Bistromathics.

    Some people work best when they are locked in their offices and strapped to their chairs.
    Then again, this is Vanderbeam we’re talking about. He would still have found a way to do some damage.

    What about the Bloater Drive, from “Bill the Galactic Hero” by Harry Harrison? It makes the ship get bigger and bigger (and more diffuse, of course) until one end of it is where you started and the other is where you want to go, then shrinks it back to normal size.

    Phun Phact: The strip was orginally called Starshift Crisis. The author wanted to change it, so for a while, he ran two strips simultaneously, Starshift Crisis and Starslip Crisis. They were identical except for the drive names. Then in this strip, Vanderbeam pushed the button. The Starshift one blew up. The Starslip one continued. :)

    If we can manage to get distance on both sides of the equation, the distance will cancel out and we will be where we want to be.

    Remember our capt. Vanderbeam doesn’t care what happens in any other universe. He might now.

    Night-Gaunt: Not yet, and not any time soon, but eventually it will become a VERY large part of his motivation.
