Michael calls his friend Edward and tells him of the rebellion.  Can Edward save the day?

i can't remember if I suggested to put Edward and SAM in this, or if Sterling had planned to have Edward and SAM appear in it.  i think I had asked, how is Michael supposed to go over there and not get attacked by the applicances and perhaps Sterling suggested that perhaps SAM would go and this strip explains how that happens.  Anyway, I thought it was funny with the line mentioning space aliens.
