Comics: Once Upon a Trope

Computer Love


On a spaceship, a figure is hidden by a large white cloth. The captain holds the end of the cloth, about to unveil it. A small dog yips at the captain’s feet.

Captain: Computer?

Computer: Yes, Captain?

Captain: You said you wanted a physical form to be closer to me. So… happy birthday!

The cloth has been taken off to reveal a sexy female android body. The captain smiles in self-satisfaction. The dog growls at it.

Computer: A thoughtful gift, Captain. However, I was speaking to Waffles.

The captain sulks as, in front of him, the small dog rubs heads with a small android dog, hearts floating above them.

    Have you had your computer neutered or spayed?

    • Alverant

      To say nothing about protection from viruses.

      If not, maybe there will be adorable cyborg puppies!

      Oh gosh, now I’m imagining them.

    Oh, dear. Is this when Captain Archer decides to blow up the computer?

    • Bellis

      Well, if it was a choice between Archer and Porthos, I know who I’d chose!

      I’m glad this comic has a happy ending
