Okay, this is the point when we're reminded that Art and Pip are action heroes and have been blooded in combat before. I'm hoping that Art says something to Simon along the lines of: "You know, I don't know what the stuff you put in these darts would do to someone of your species and I'm rapidly running out of reasons not to find out. Are we talking the same language here?"
And, yes, Kat. You look totally badass. Bikini cat-girl with a carbine gun? It's pretty much an internet nerd's most fond dream!
