How is that ship flying in the first place? Wouldn't the pieces fall off? Davidy²²[talk] 09:59, 9 March 2013 (UTC)

Is the mini board really floating? It looked to me like it was adrift in sea. I think I might make some edits.

I think the board is actually rolling on casters. If you look closely you can see a small round circle by each corner. I've edited it a bit. (talk) (please sign your comments with ~~~~)

This comic actually has a common error by non-chess players using chess positions: a1, and by extension a3 and c3, are dark squares. h1 is supposed to be the light-squared corner. 06:50, 4 May 2013 (UTC)

Unless, of course, the positions are relative to their small board, where al corners are white and hence numbering has to start on a white square 17:41, 16 April 2014 (UTC)

It looks like there are wheels in the corners. 16:25, 22 May 2013 (UTC)

The loose 3x3 board is from a Classic Star Trek 3-D chess set. The little pegs on the corners are used to secure the board in different places around the game. 02:03, 11 August 2013 (UTC)

No, it's not. The Star Trek 3D chess consists of 3 stationary 4x4's and 4 mobile 2x2's. -- 02:25, 22 March 2014 (UTC)
