"Easy guys, easy. Get down, line up, " he said.

Reluctantly, the furry little beasts gathered along the walls, sitting obediently and fidgeting with excitement.

"What's all this?" Lex asked, confounded.

"This is Solby, " Karter said.

"Last I checked, Solby was one creature. Singular. And, for that matter, past tense."

"Redundancies, backups, and replacements for all vital systems. That's just good engineering practice, " Karter explained, scanning the row of creatures.

"And what the hell happened to him!?" Lex asked, suddenly noticing what was left of Agent Fisk.

He looked as though his skin had been worked over with a cheese grater, and judging by the rather sizable sections of his anatomy that were rendered unrecognizable, checking for a pulse would be a waste of time. Evidently, even tiny, adorable teeth could take out a full-grown man, if there were enough of them, and he could barely see or breathe.

"Well, he killed Solby, so Solby ganged up and killed him. I don't know if getting mauled to death by an army of itty-bitty, stench-spraying cuties is irony or karma, but it sure is hilarious.

Considering the fact that half of his base and most of his face had been wrecked, Lex was fairly certain he would be justified this time around.

"Meh. It happens, " he said, taking a pull off of a beer.

Lex stared at him silently for a moment. A medical probe, probably the same one that had patched up Lex's leg, trundled into the room and started to scan and treat its inventor.

"It happens? That's it?"

"Yeah."

"You almost caved my head in with a crowbar for showing up in a ship later than you expected."

"Well, it was a dicky thing to do."

"Yet you saved my life when I first crashed here."
