Comic #4715

1 Terry: You can’t bring Steve back through sewer pipes in pieces and expect to reassemble him!
2 Jane Goodall: Who said anything about reassembling? Anyway, that’s how transporter technology works in Star Trek.
3 Terry: That analogy is no good! They don’t use sewer pipes!
4 Terry: In fact... did they even have toilets on board the Enterprise??
