This week's idea was suggested on the Ideas Board by EnabranMek
Sev Trek: The Comic Strip

What use is Tryhard? When push comes to shove, what use exactly is Counsellor Tryhard on the bridge of the Enterforaprize? Well, apart from the obvious eye candy, that is.

This week's strip generated a whole bunch of nitpicks on the Discussion Board. Here were some of them (thanks to Spiner and Robert Underwood):
  1. The seats Beta and Gaudy are sitting in should be those awful, reclined ones that they replaced at the start of the second season. I can see, though, that this might have conflicted with the composition of the strip. I can't blame JC for using the newer chairs.
  2. The men should be wearing the first season uniforms, with the coloured stripe on the yoke. Admittedly, this would be a bit difficult to do effectively with the small area JC has to work with.
  3. I'm not 100% sure on this one, but I think Tryhard's purple jumpsuit didn't show up (or is that "show off"?) in the first season. I think the only item in her wardrobe at that time was that drab little dark-grey number.
  4. Tryhard's hair should be in the severe-looking first-season "bun".
  5. Usually, JS's always made sure to draw in the bridge's background elements, but this time all the back computer stations are missing!
  6. I didn't notice for quite some time, but it finally hit me that PIKER'S CHAIR IS MISSING! :-) I'm sure some of these things were done intentionally to make the image less "busy".
  7. Gaudy was a Red Shirt in the first season!
