Bio:
I live on the Isle of Man, and my usual fic territory is Dr Who. Torchwood, and Fruits Basket. I loved BotP since I was small, but now that I have encountered the original Gatchaman (with it's delightful and peaceful lack of Zark) it has stolen my heart.

Summary: "If Sosai X hadn't come, [Katse] would never have entered Galactor, never have become their leader. They would have been like any other brother and sister." So I thought, what if Ken ended up in a position to make that happen...?

*Cough, splutter* Sorry, did I miss the nosecola warning?? lol. I read this a while ago and couldn't remember what it was called, so I was really glad to trip over it again tonight. *g*

Author's Response: Thank you very much...uh, I think. Pardon my ignorance but what's a nosecola warning? It's a good thing, right? I hope. *grins sheepishly*

Nosecola, you know, when you're drinking something and someone does or says something that makes you laugh hard enough to spray your drink out of your nose.

Author's Response: Ohhh! So that's what it is!! THANKS!!! XD

Date: 08/21/2008 Title: Chapter 1: BoTP Episode 10: A Swarm of Robot Ants

League--three statute miles or approximately 4,828 meters. Came from medieval Latin leaga, a measure of distance. As readers of Ivanhoe and other romantic tales know, the league was once used to measure distances on land and is not strictly a nautical measure.

Fathom--six feet or approximately 183 centimeters. Comes from Middle English fathme which itself comes from Old English faedm [the a and e are one letter and the d has that cross over it] meaning "outstretched arms." Kind of reminds you of how a yard is about the distance from the nose to the tip of the arm, huh?

So it seems Center Neptune is one of those little globes you get in the liquid thermometers, only on a WAY bigger scale, lol.

I too have often wondered what happened to the car in this episode, but while I was reading your review, between trying not to laugh aloud, and inhale my drink, as I am in the office, I had an epiphany *lol* they quite obviously have a carosel of 'may one day be useful' gadgets stored in the belly of the Phoenix somewhere, and the car can be retracted back, and the 'may one day be useful' item can be rotated into place. The designers then look smug, just like your granny when she hauls some 90 year old bit of tat out of the deep dark depths of a cupboard, and says, 'see, I knew that would be useful one day'. ;)

BTW, I love these episode reviews, you and the ghostowl have the capacity to reduce me to giggle in the office with your reviews.

lol, still loving these *g*

You should count yourself lucky on the translations though, the ones on the disks I have are truly horrendous. For some reason they have managed to f*@k up not only some of the basic translations, but the names too. Sean(Ken) Alex(Joe) Jenny(Jun) STING!!!(Jinpei) Dragon(Ryu, I know this is actually accurate, Ryu is Dragon, but you don't translate names, damn it) Nangkong?(Nambu) and Head(Katse) oh, and best of all, the Hinotori becomes the flaming flamingo!!! None of which fills me with confidence about the rest of their translation skills. Hmmmm, maybe Zark translated them, lol.

Summary: Our Heroes battle a giant, flaming man.  Did I mention he is really on fire?  Literally?

Nice, very nice, Joe using the anger to hide his pain, and Ken just determined to push them all on, some things never change, lol.

Yay! Another segment, I was beginning to think you had jumped ship, so thrilled to see this! Can't wait to see what's going to happen next with Wade, Rick, Mark and the rest!

oooh! Tenterhooks ho! Bites nails.

Author's Response: Tenterhooks, my favourite...at least you've only having to wait a day between chapters, the poor Bird Scramble people had to wait 3 months between sections :)

This is getting better and better every chapter, love the way Jason has always insisted he could do a better job in command, but now he just wants Mark to come take it back already, it's awesome the way he just relaxed almost completely as soon as he knew Mark was on the mend. Can't wait to see what happens next.

Author's Response: Yup - he's not a good strategist and now he knows it.
