Episode One Hundred And Two – The Day The Squid Said Hello

The Day The Squid Said Hello

A message is passed up from the bottom of the ocean, species to species, until it reaches those weird creatures which live right on the edge of vacuum, above the point where liquid water can exist.

Explorers from the deep clumsily jet onto land to investigate this strange dry part of the world, and maybe don’t understand that the tiny bipeds have views on the matter.

Down in the inky depths, that Neutrino issue is perfectly obvious.
The critters out on the edge of vacuum don’t seem to be aware of it, so a mission sets off to deal with the problem. Once the vacuum’s-edge folk work out what’s going on, they’ll maybe want to help.

A well-trained human and their childhood friend battle the corruption of the city.
Oh, and the friend is an intelligent amphibious squid.
Don’t make this weird.

In the midst of a war between humanity and squidlike aliens, two groups of stranded enemies discover that they have far more in common than they’d thought possible.
