    Plus it's not like she's going to be climbing or anything, so there's little reason to consider articulated legs as opposed to a mitten-type approach.

    Though a lack of atmospheric pressure doesn't necessarily imply a lack of gravity or acceleration. One might be on an airless moon, or outside a ship under thrust, or a rotating station.

    My personal opinion? It's a design she made because the standard design does not accommodate a tail...

    So it's simpler for a single-leg design that has her hop, rather than try to retrofit a standard design for her tail.

    May you get EXACTLY what you wish for.

    She has a little cart that pulls her around. She doesn't need to hop, and is probably well aware that one good thrust can achieve escape velocity.

    Good for a linear path, but when one has to work angles or move 'up' in a confined zero-g environment, legs are pretty efficient.

    "Cart" + "legs" = torque?
    I'm pretty much the opposite of concise. If I fail to get to the point, please ask me and I'm happy to (attempt to) clarify.

    Yeah, this comic (2/22/2021) is one that reminds me why I love Freefall.

    I'm suddenly reminded of a great line from a mediocre movie.

    "We'll just cancel the return ticket."

    The folks on Jean are probably just buying Sam a one-way ticket, though.
