Oban is big. You just won't believe how vastly, hugely, mind-bogglingly big it is. You may think it's a long way down the road to Alwas, but that's just peanuts to Oban.
Of course, every sci-fi adventure needs a good old-fashioned space pirate, and Lord Furter is here to scratch that itch. perhaps with his tongue. Of course, he's also the first dud rival in the show. Will we give him an unflattering nickname to reflect this fact? Well, you've already read the title.
Also, Mary saw a real big stinkbug and in the process of moving away from the Bug Containment Zone accidentally unplugged her mic, and Audacity switched to the laptop mic without any of us realizing. Long story short, loud noise warning for 24:00, and then from about 26:00 onward Mary's audio quality is... less good than desired. We deeply regret the error and lay all of the blame on the stinkbug.
