Responsible creators recycle their characters

New Galaxion page! [I'm posting this early: the link won't show the new page until sometime after midnight, or whenever it officially becomes Tuesday by the GAM clocks!]

Also, I forgot to blog about the new page on Friday, so if you missed that one, start here.

Just like with Chief Engineer Anna Ito, some more minor characters are getting a makeover in this scene. Which minor characters, you ask?

These guys! You might remember them from such Galaxion back issues as #5, pp.11-12, or the Galaxion Graphic Novel, pp.113-114. They never appeared again. They were always meant to be recurring characters, but I never got far enough in the story to develop them further. They never even got names. As I recall, my original inspiration for them was The Lone Gunmen from The X-Files-- a trio of people so weird and obsessed that they make the other weird and obsessed folk aboard the Galaxion look normal. Anyway, here they are again in this new scene, looking slightly different, telling the same joke, but hopefully with a little more personality.

I always looked at them as examples of the work environment Fusella had built on the ship... They want her to come and look at their work, not because of professional considerations, but because they genuinely think she'd be interested in what's going on down there. Yes, they're there to do a job, and it's more important now than ever that they do it correctly-- but they're still capable of finding humor in it and wanting to bring the Boss Lady in on the joke.

Dang, I wish I worked in a place like that. ^_^

They are very much examples of the kind of people Fusella hires, and attracts. I wish we all could work in a place like that! I learned pretty quickly in my job-hunting career that happiness has less to do with the actual job than with the people around you. You could be gutting fish for a living, but with the right boss and the right co-workers, it could be the best job in the world.

I hope no one tries to compare working on the Galaxion to gutting fish, though...

I shouldn't like to try, I'll tell you that. ^_^
