Left to right, second panel: MadJak's Teren, Fabian's Dr. Ytterbium and Trad's Dr. Radames. Yup, I'm working through this thread slowly, but if that call for characters is the first time I've ever interacted with a producer... well, they'd better have hella character designs.

$10 says Sam hits on her.

Teren's symbol from his shirt kinda looks like it could be a logo for some science-y company.
Cool rendition of him.

You know, I have never put much thought behind the symbol. Whether it is just a shirt or it means something to him.
Lir using it like this is actually really cool, yeah :D

Is that in Canadian $? Because somehow striking up small talk with a pissed-off AF officer who's about to charge you with being an [redacted] doesn't strike me as a real good idea.

Thanks... I call him "Supersized Teren".

Eyyy, some more familiar faces.:D
...Pfft, I totally feel like he'd hit on her, too. Then again, that angry look...

Okay, that's real world sad joke-hilarious for Sam to be the, "Norma Jean Mortenson Professor of Women in Media." I salute your chutzpah.

Hello again, Dr. Christianos...

FIVE doctorates immanentizing the eschaton? Yikes...

Even Sammy-boy may know better than to hit on her... Note that I said "may"...

Deacon's somewhere around here... might have to wait until after the commercial break for him to get screen time.

Anybody who plays with super high energy power sources goes on the USG's "pay attention to that guy" list. Anyone who does it in novel and potentially destructive ways gets invites to little get togethers like this.

Why is nobody giving Sam more credit? :/
I am not as surprised. He always was super resourceful unless you say it is dumb luck :D
I dig his PINK tie which is another thing ladies secretly like ;)

I think he simply knows how to get by people...
You know, him and Eric remind me of the two dudes during the Italian Unification whose names escape me.

Natalie looks TIRED. Just like her author. Shhh!
I also won an imaginary bat that they will be next to each other, haha :D

Short answer: He's a professional muckraker. Why would someone doing scummy, military R&D with embarrassing details involved be anything but unhappy to see him? His history with Eric is a bonus extra reason to be suspicious of someone whose very profession puts Sam high on many people's shitlists.

Natalie seems too tired - maybe she was waiting for this too eagerly!
Also mad wouldn't necessarily fit - extremely curious and inquiring would be a better descriptor :D

Powerpoints and dim lights will do that to lots of us.

And Brigham isn't talking about everybody at the conference, just a particularly dangerous subset of her guests. You'll see a few of them down the line.

Thanks a bunch, tho I suspect you're more than partial to any discussion of robots and Air Force stuff...

Thank you for the cameo! The Dr. Evil gesture is an interesting choice, if that's what you had in mind.

Hey, no problem. In your work, Dr. Ytterbium comes across as not so clearly aligned with the side of angels. Also, I can guarantee that the character next to her (Sammy C.) was chatting her up...

Ah yes, you got her alignment about right! ;-)
And of course she is supposed to be quite a stunner, so I can't really blame Sammy for a little bit of flirting. :-D
