Oh sure, there's faster ways of getting around. But are they as opulent?

Comments from the Tagboard:

None for this installment!

Panel 1:
Supreme Advisor: Well, it seems the two of your are getting along famously already! I am pleased.
    And impressed.

Panel 2:
Supreme Advisor: This idea of yours was just perfect, Prince Ja'syn. I'm pleased to see you embracing your role.
Prince: Thank you, sir! I hope I have some more just like it!
Supreme Advisor: Indeed. I shall see you both when you return.

Panel 3:
Prince: Isn't this grand? The two of us, on our way to a public appearance together?
    I hope the Supreme Advisor lets us do this again and again, you and I!
Natashia Starrat: Yeah. Sure. But why do you let the Supreme Advisor make those decisions? You're the royalty here.
    Aren't you his boss?
Prince: Well, yeah, I guess I am... but he's my advisor. My SUPREME advisor. Princes should listen to their advisors, right?
Natashia: Listen, yes. But take orders from him?
Prince: He doesn't order me around! He always assures me I'm in charge of what's going on.

Panel 4:
Natashia: But are you really in charge? Or is it just about parties and stuff?
Prince: No! I know about all sorts of important things.
Natashia: Okay... like what?
Prince: Well... he's always talking about the spice fields.
    Production levels and all. It's kind of boring.

Panel 5:
Natashia: Of course... he talked about touring the spice fields! How'd I miss that?
Prince: Miss what?
Natashia: He's exploiting this planet for... agriculture?

Panel 6:
Prince: Exploiting? That doesn't sound right. But I know the spice is important.
    It's for the ale.
Natashia: The ale?
Prince: Sure... water, yeast, barley, and Spoogian spice. I know the ingredients by heart!
Natashia: Even for the soy sauce ale?
Prince: Oh, well, that one's brand new! It has other natural flavors, too.

Panel 7:
Natashia: Do any of those bottles have labels?
    The first one didn't.
Prince: Oh, that was from the special sample case. Here's a production line bottle. They just came in!
    You want to try it finally?

Panel 8:
Natashia: Um... I'll get back to you on that.
    Hm... my Romulan isn't great. But I don't see Spoogian spice on this label. I do see the soy sauce, though.
    And "other natural flavors."
Prince: That's weird they'd call Spoogian spice "other natural flavors." It's always been listed.
Natashia: Isn't Romulan Ale always blue, too?
Prince: Huh. Yeah, it is.
    Spoogian spice is bright blue, too, after it's processed.

Panel 9:
Romulan Guard: We are now passing the Spice Processing Plant, your majesties!
    Arriving at Particle Defense Control in 15 minutes.
Natashia: Thank you... but if you would... may we request one additional stop?
