Panel 3: Enjoy Heronet talking head "Valkyrie Eleison," folks. While I'd love to say that her obnoxious pun of a supranym was derived from my background as a lapsed Catholic (with "Kyrie eleison" being Greek for "Lord have mercy"), the truth is that the joke comes from a g-d Mr. Mister song that was pretty much unavoidable during my time at the Joe Kubert School.
Also, note that the station was nicknamed "the d10" for obvious reasons. Once upon a time, I would've had many d10s kicking around as easy reference due to late-teens roleplaying of the wholly d10-based TSR game Star Frontiers, but those dice were long gone by the time I had to draw this space station. (Oh, well.)
