<<First comic <Previous comic | Next comic> Latest comics>>

A virtual lollipop to everyone who can identify all the costumes/references.


  1. Targe – not really sure (The only elves in space I can think of atm are the Eldar from Warhammer 40k)
    Morgana – Tricia Helfer’s character(s) from the new BSG
    Hurgon – someone in the Harry Potter series?
    Thiz -Star Trek
    Alaxia – Princess Leia
    Gord – Capt. Mal Reynolds

  2. Hmm, let’s see…

    Gord is Mal from Firefly
    Alaxia is following in Princess Leia’s footsteps
    Thizzible is rocking an Original Series Star Trek look
    Hurgon appears to be emulating Dr Who
    Morgatha is Number Six from Battlestar Galactica
    and Targe, well, I’m not quite sure about Targe… Red Dwarf? MST3K?

  3. Gord is Jayne from Serenity
    Alaxia is princess leia hologram
    Thizzible, based on colour of dress (yeah, I know, not the most reliable thing for me) is Nurse Chapel
    Hurgon is the Fourth Doctor (Tom Baker)
    Morgatha is Six from BSG (Hand of God)
    Targe is Captain Link Hogthrob from the Muppets skit “Pigs in Space”

    • Thizz… Nurse Chapel from ST:ToS… however, the thing in her ear implies Uhura… though I don’t think either would give a phaser order…

  4. If Gord is quoting Jayne, is he respeccing Fury?

  5. Alaxia is princess leia, hurgon is dr who, Thizzible is uhura (although wrong colour dress i believe), don’t know the others, but this comic is full of WIN 😀

    • While the red dress is Six, the quote sounds like the Time Prophet from Lexx…

  6. […] The Final Frontier […]

  7. And the answers are…

    Targe: Pigs in Space from the Muppet Show
    Morgatha: new Battlestar Galactica
    Hurgon: old Doctor Who (Fourth Doctor / Tom Baker)
    Thizzible: Star Trek original series
    Alaxia: Star Wars: A New Hope
    Gord: Firefly / Serenity

    Thizzible and Gord are fudged, as you noticed. Thizzible is mostly dressed as Uhura, but she has the sense not to head to a strange new planet wearing red, so she switched her uniform for someone in the much-longer-life-expectancy medical branch. Gord is dressed as Mal, but has borrowed his lines from Jayne, just because they’re that awesome.

    I suppose it would have been fitting, in a way, to give Gord one of Mal’s lines: “I’m going to the special hell.”

    Lollipops all around! Thanks for playing 😀

  8. quick! someone needs to find a way for me to transmogrify my gear into a star trek uniform!!!

    • That would be epic. My Xbox Live avatar is currently wearing a TNG uniform. 🙂

      And wowafr: I know it’s not provable after all the answers have been provided, but I got all of these except BSG. I almost thought Morgatha was being Inara, given the dress.

      • That’s good enough– have a virtual lollipop.
