Cass and Flint have begun changing. Flint notices this in his hand first. Other more subtle changes can be seen in Cass’ nose and both characters’ ears. Because I drew a Star Trek XI teaser poster in panel 3, I decided to point out the link between Vulcans and Flint’s ears in the strip’s title. (A while after this strip was made, the release date for the film was changed from Christmas 2008 to May 2009, so I guess this makes Flint’s poster not only vintage, but valuable for its rarity.)
