pilot should suddenly explode out of the space time warp (he is what caused the disintigration malfunction) throwing a toilet plunger at the abitraiar yelling FOR THE GOVENOR! just as the arbitraiar shot out the lobotomizeing lazer or whatever causeing him to lobotomize himself
I told you! You should've shot your own hand off Snippy but now it's too late! Poke it in the...Eye...Thing? Sure, it could hurt you, but it's better than spending eternity locked up with a bunch of alien doctors telling you what's right.
He still has the mug right? Maybe to gain his trust to accomplish "the mission" the mug must perform some kind of transformer-esque maneuver (or manifest a psychic force wave) and save Snippy. The captain is distracted while all this is happening and before turning around the mug returns to normal. So, now its a stand off between Snippy and Zee Captain on who will regain possession of the mug, but who will concede?
Tries to use the power of the mug but fails miserably, afterwards zee Captain join in and demands the mug yet again to fix everything... it was just to prove a point that you do not disobey zee Captain
Okay... So was the latest plot revelation planned from the beginning? Since the series does homage, tribute, borrow and copy from a wide variety of pop culture of the last 40 years. An example being the "Deer God" is now piloting an "Evangelion". Anyway, is mind Snippy's mind an Ergo Proxy/Fight Club reference? When I read the latest strip I wasn't surprised, more like, "oh they're going with that plot twist." Looking back there are instances where it works and many where it doesn't. Mainly where characters, other than Pilot, acknowledge and interact with both Snippy and Captain. I reckon them being clones (same DNA) and Cap being nuke proof would work without having flashback rewrites to fill in plot holes.
