    I see Bandanna is still fuming where she's tied up. I wonder if the crew will release her at some point?

    Good call on Elan's part, even if she's running in the wrong direction at least that's one round she's not smashing things.

    ETA: And I notice that Andi is still tackling these problems as if they were engineering issues. We'll see how that works.

    Respectfully,

    I sense the inevitable end of Andi's captaincy fast approaching.

    Agreed: the link on the sidebar still points to #1070, and my bookmark also takes me to #1070

    Updates again! Yay

    So, any of our criptographers want to decypher the secret message the Giant laid to us behind the female ice gigant's apparent random words?

    Looks like Andi is improving as a captain and giving sensible, calm orders, which is nice to see. (Although, is there some reason they can't just stop going forwards? There's no other giants around except the one onboard, and moving doesn't seem to be inhibiting her, so maybe it would make sense to stop and let Roy kill it and then figure out where to go from there, or even get more gas into the blimp envelope. Is there maybe some wind that would blow them into a mountain if they tried to stop making lateral motion?)

    Elan is continuing to contribute, which is awesome. I'm really liking how he's becoming a useful and powerful part of the team.

    On the comic, the sidebar link is correct (Order of the Stick 1071 Never Failed Him Before).

    Good catch. It is therefore probably related to the brief downtime & database crash of last week that brought down the forums.

    Why on Earth is everyone on the ship so quick to side with Andi? Bigger problems, or is she really that will liked by the crew?

    Rebelling against the superior officer in the middle of battle is a terrible idea that only an idiot would think of. The crew aren't idiots. They gain nothing by re-treading Andi's actions.

    Like Grey_Wolf said, I think it's becuase the rest of the crew is intelligent enough to realize that mutiny in as dangerous of a situation as the one they are in would most likely spell certain death with no one to give orders. Just my opinion though.

    The Giant doesn't do current politics in the strip. I imagine that's for the same reason discussions of them are banned in the forum.
