I bet y’all thought that when Captain Custer finally got the chance to give the order to “FIRE” that it would be a fist-pumping, shout-out-loud moment. Kinda like when the Enterprise finally gets the drop on the Reliant near the climax of Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan and Captain Kirk (in an iconic moment) orders his own crew to “FIRE” (this gratuitous ST reference will payoff later in the blog, trust me).

Well, we’ve never been satisfied with the conventional approach, so we decided that the first time the Custer unloaded it’s torpedo tubes on an enemy vessel it was going to be super-mega DOWNER. You should know by now that nothing is ever easy for the Daredevils, but this might just be the toughest dilemma we’ve seen them tackle yet.

The Captain was forced to make a gut-wrenching choice: spare the life of his crewman, McGinty, and doom the world to unending darkness, or sacrifice one of his own and spare the entire population of the planet from a horrible fate? In the end, and with a heavy heart, he chose the good of the many over the good of the few (told you).
