shook the universe, and the women who were indifferent to them..."
-Alan Moore, author of Watchmen and V for Vendetta
"There is no greater being than the all-seeing,
galaxy-gleaming, far-reaching Captain Star."
-Richard E Grant, the voice of Captain Star

Thanks to everyone who signed up for our Captain Star Omnibus
draw - see below for the selection process...
We thought long and hard about how to select a winner. Some advocated the construction of a purpose-built selection machine based upon the notorious difference engine of Charles Babbage; however objections were raised on the grounds of budget and practicability. Others suggested hurling darts at a list of numbers. Consultation with our solicitors led us to believe that following this course could nullify our insurance policy. In the end, saner heads prevailed, and we conscripted a small dog named Ivan to select the winner via the following process:
In the actual event, Ivan was uninterested in eating the numbers, and so the first number to stick to his nose was, after consultation amongst the judges, declared a winner.
The lucky number belonged to… Tjeerdo Polderman, of British Columbia, Canada. Congratulations Tjeerdo!
