I wouldn't mind having an E.V.A. Pod from 2001 in my room (though things would be mighty cramped)

Truth be told, I'd much prefer a shuttle from TNG.

This is shaping up to be a pretty decent storyline. Dave decided to create a network throughout the house so that his computer/AI PAL could oversee and control automation of different aspects of the house, like power and water usage, security, etc. Naturally, PAL went rogue, as AIs are wont to do. To be fair, it was largely Dave's fault. He tried explaining the concept of privacy using written computer memory and PAL now sees two of the characters as bad files that need to be deleted. If you're interested, the storyline starts here.

If you've never read or even heard of Real Life Comics, I'm not entirely surprised. While it's been around as long as Penny Arcade, PvP, and other long time webcomics, RLC never quite achieved the same level of popularity. A shame really, because the comic is pretty good, save for some occasional "meh" moments. There are some nice scifi storylines that have involved Battlemech vs. Eva (from Neon Genesis Evangelion), time travel, travel to alternate timelines, space stations, journeys to other planets, and more.
