Shuttle in Transit

So here we go with only the 2nd (and final) comic adaptation nod to Outland's infamous clock



Which as I earlier mentioned seems to serve as not only a technologically modern update of the old town clock ringing twelve (high noon) but also as a tension device by fading in and out constantly counting down the time (and clattering away) while O'Neil prepares to meet the assassins

The clock here can't really be said to be that in your face, well not more than anything else, the thing with skewed perceptions is objects can loose their consistency particularly when something else is dominating almost the entire picture - which is certainly the case above

So what preparations is O'Neil making above.. we are getting closer to the answer
