I always felt bad for Princess Irulan.  She kinda got a raw deal in the whole Dune saga.  Here’s my remedy to that.

    Not surprised at all.

  2. BrickVoid says:

    As I thought. I wonder if Marty’s thought about how medical needs would be handled whilst she’s onboard? While it’s not like Dr. Oon couldn’t handle whatever medical conditions she might wind up with, writing up a medical report on a stowaway won’t go unnoticed for long! 😀

    • PsihoKekec says:

      Considering the messes they had to deal with, report on stowaway would gotten filed under ”Meh” section.

      • Kaian says:

        Isn’t that half the logs on this ship?
        I mean if a random portal opened and dumped a mass of raw tuna on the bridge Bob would likely ask if it was Tuesday already.

        • SaylorA says:

          He’d then have the mess hall send someone up to collect it all so Gary could make tuna casserole for dinner.

  3. Stowaway Captain? This ensign Princess, don’t you remember?

  4. Terwin says:

    In a patriarchal autocracy any daughters of the ruling class pretty much always get a raw deal.
    Basically prisoners in a gilded cage where the only choice they are ever afforded is ‘political marriage as directed by family or holy orders’ and it is common to not even get that choice.

  5. Ryubbert Narraetsor says:

    Marty, maybe this time spend some time making sure this princess isn’t a Sith…?

  6. hkmaly says:

    Personally, I think there are people who ended worse. Leto I Atreides, for example.

    Sure, Irulan never had sex with Paul, but she was member of his high council, later serves as chief advisor to Alia and then as guide and confidante to Ghanima.

  7. BrokenEye, True False Prophet says:

    Hooray! You saved David Bowie.

  8. SaylorA says:

    Lt. Lor would probably notice, but all Marty has to say is ‘she’s here and you have no need to know why’. At which point Lor would see about adjusting the budget to cover her expenses and then drop the matter.

    • BrickVoid says:

      Then Lt. Lor would have to rethink the budget – you ever done a budget for “women’s expenses”? 😀
