Commentary for April 17, 2013:

I think it was around about this page that I decided it might be wise to leave the edges on my 3D models for the backgrounds and such in subsequent chapters. After all, it's a little jarring to see drawn props, like the folder Eon's holding, which has an outline, next to modelled props, like the papers on the table, which don't. As such, when chapter 2 rolls around, you'll notice that difference, and I think it's mostly an improvement, if nothing else, no detail is lost that way, and I think it helps make the characters look like they belong on their backgrounds.

That said, I don't think this page worked out too badly in the end, although I'm not too happy with how inconsistent Mr. Crag's face seems to be. I was kind of going for a look similar to Mr. House, from Fallout: New Vegas, only fatter... Then again, House might have been fat once... You only really see his face on the computer screens... at least until... well, I'll avoid spoiling it for those who may not have played it. If you're desperate to know, I'm sure the Mr. House article I just linked you to will fill you in.

Addendum for October 3, 2019:

In order to bring the format of the earlier chapters into line with Chapter 7 onwards, I’ve made an updated version of this page, which is larger, with clearer text. Hopefully, this will make the earlier chapters easier to read.

Again, I tweaked the dialogue a little bit on this page, but for reasons of lore and continuity this time. Back when I first wrote this chapter, I was still referring to Sol as the “Terran System”, you see, whereas it is generally referred to in later chapters (and in Eon’s World Vol. 1) as Sol or the Sol system and I want there to be consistency throughout the series. (Yes, if I’d been doing the digital remastering of Star Trek, I’d have had that tombstone say “James T. Kirk” rather than “James R. Kirk”. I am that person.)
