Thanks Sir Rhosis!
Exciting, Kail!! It's hard waiting for a new page.
That's nice to hear. Thank you very much!
Where'd Spock's belt materialize from?
As of right now, I'm supposing that either he (or whatever impostor he actually is) got one from a regular life-support belt locker near or on the way to one of the airlocks before stepping onto the hangar deck proper, or it's some kind of illusion.
But he's not wearing it when Scott find him, he stuns him, then runs off wearing it.
Oh, right. I missed that frame, frame #3, because it was off screen. And it was almost perfectly off screen. I didn't realize I had to scroll over.
I see what you mean. The part where Spock (or "Spock") gets a belt, say from a locker, before running towards the door to the hangar deck appears to be missing. Given that the bay appears to be exposed to vacuum, he do know, however, that he'd need a belt before going through the airlock, yes?
He took it off of Scotty, who was on his way to the shuttle bay.
And how are we readers supposed to know that? We don't see Scotty wearing it.
I think it's inferred. When Spock shows up in the shuttle bay we see that the other Engineers are wearing one.
Nah. It's not inferred. It looks like a mistake.
That's a fair point. Perhaps a shot establishing Scotty's belt would have been helpful there, rather than simply showing that all of the other engineers are wearing the belts in the following panel.
