INSANE BABBLING OF AN ANGRY MAN

C D Ishmael is finally getting some focus time!!

Today I begin a new storyline and it's gonna be based on Star Trek. Bet ya couldn't tell huh!

I actually had today's and Wednesday's strip already drawn and plotted but I got stuck and didn't know where else to go with this so I actually thought about just not bothering with it and to use one of the filler stories that I had drawn out earlier but as I was driving home today, I had an epiphany! A moment of clarity. The story just came to me from out of nowhere and I now know exactly where I'm going with this. So stick around and find out what our intrepid crew of the USS Suppressor, NCC-168 is up to!

Here's an interesting little ancedote on how I came up with USS Suppressor.

I knew that I wanted a Star Trek story since I created C D Ishamel so I planned the world around him and the first thing that I needed was a ship. I also didn't want to just take any of the existing ships so this whole thing would be suit proof. I wanted a name that would reflect my personality so I asked my friends and colleagues to use just one word to describe me. Of all the words that they used, "brave", "warm", "kind", "wonderful", "sexy", I found the word "suppressed" to be the most suitable. Hence, suppressor. He he he. Good one huh!?!?!?
