Comic description

Earth is dying, Mars is a wasteland, and humanity clings to small pockets of space-born air and water like anthills in an ocean. Bleak? Sure. But life goes on.

A modest family cargo ship, the Grimalkin, trades between the last islands of humanity, doing its best to survive. The Grimalkin's crew are survivors: hard, gritty, no-nonsense people who have seen the worst, fought through it, and won. Except for Cato...

Mind Blo*

NO!THAT'S THE CODE WORD!

Boom.

I think it's more that the system the guards are using has NO IDEA what the implant is, so it has run through the possiblities and gone 'bomb...? Maybe...?'

So the brain is a possible bomb? I guess now we know what happens when its mind is blown.

Implantable bombs are one of those sci-fi tropes that are just terrifying...

I think these are the first people we've met down here that don't have some ulterior motive or agenda. Just doin' their jobs.

The mask being the bomb makes a certain kind of sense. If they have batteries that can power an awesome laser gun, then goodness only knows what kinds of portable explody things they can rig...

As for WHY their system is freaking out over the learning implant and not Rubik, it all depends on what the green computer lady did.

I think the guards are more confused than anything else at this point.

I would imagine they would begin by asking questions. Then discovering it's a learning implant. Then saying 'we need to find out why our system thinks it might be a bomb. Seriously. That's weird. Either a) our system is faulty and THAT'S BAD or b) the small device in your brain is doing strange things and THAT'S ALSO BAD.'

Then probably a trip to the security station upstairs followed by perhaps a visit to the hospital and some futuristic medical imaging systems.

But that's assuming the best. Maybe Cato'll just get shot!
