    “Wait… this dome wasn’t here a few seconds ago!”

    Why is he wearing one of her caftans? It’s a secret.

  3. THX 1139 Says:

    It could be worse, he could be dressed as a Nazi and she’d have to jaunt the hell out of there.

    His secret: Soylent Purple is Martians.

  5. Ryan Says:

    The Reverend Father was a nice man, but his insistence on Holy Communion prior to boarding was a little off-putting.

    “Oh great – new neighbors, and they’re space-trailer trash.”

    “Relax, dear. I’m synthesizing some riff-raff-be-gone as we speak. Have you seen my space-slippers and space-pipe?”

  7. JuanPaul Says:

    “Hey Janet, waddaya say we open up these cannisters of nitrous and ether, drink whatever this is and party like martians?”

  8. B. Chiclitz Says:

    I’ll say this for Janet, she’s always so tastefully well-dressed, and coiffed and accessorized to suit whatever occasion she finds herself in, even an airless radiation-blasted wasteland with a stoned priest!

    🎶 Tomorrow people, It’s Martian proof glass
    Tomorrow people, Let’s drink from this flask
    Tomorrow people, I inhaled that gas
    Tomorrow people, how long will it last

    GSS, @JuanPaul.

    Looking more closely, is he wearing his space-smoking jacket over his spacesuit?

    @Francis Boyle: and Soylent Orange is Venusians, while Soylent Floor Wax and Dessert Topping is the inhabitants of Saturn’s Moon, Titan.

    This isn’t “The Tomorrow People” I remember from my youth.

    I’m loving Janet’s dress and her hairstyle seems fairly practical for space. Although I would hope she didn’t use hairspray in that small bubble.

    What *IS* he wearing? A robe over another robe? And he’s plying her with booze and maybe nitrous? Is his terrible secret the fact that he’s Space Hugh Hefner?

  12. Francis Boyle Says:


    While Soylent Brown is from. . .

  13. GSS ex-noob Says:

    @Francis: Washington DC?

    “Oh no! A crew of beatniks have landed! There goes the 1950s middle-class outer space neighborhood…”
