Featured Vehicles & Equipment
Stalker: "The recognition signal is 'asch nazh simbatul.'"
Flint: "The counter-sign is 'asch nazh durbatulik,' Stalker!"
Lady Jaye: "Betting the Cobras don't speak Orcish, are you?"
- Lady Jaye is shown carrying a crossbow, like Scarlett usually would.
- The "orcish" codewords have slight misspellings (see below).
- It's not friction that makes the underside of a returning space shuttle glow red, but rather severely compressed gasses, which form a shockwave around the orbiter. Five miles worth of (thin) air gets compressed into a very small space every second.
Items of note
- The title of this story is the second half of issue #146's "Immovable Objects."
- Nearly every time the sky is shown in the book, the asteroid is visible.
- The end of Star Brigade in the comics.
- Destruction of the Defiant shuttle.
- Wolfgang is a complex character: he's both the traitorous weasel Flint insists he is, and he's the reliable soldier Liederkranz says he is.
- The codewords Flint and Stalker use are (misspelt) "Black Speech," from J.R.R. Tolkien's Lord of the Rings - specifically, they are taken from the inscription on the One Ring. "Ash nazg gimbatul" means "one ring to find them," and "Ash nazg durbatuluk" means "one ring to rule them all."
