Seriously, what else was Tedd afraid of? Having it just not work wouldn't be that bad of a consequence. Maybe he was afraid it would override one of Grace's natural forms or something so she could be a squirrel-girl or a cat-girl, but not a human. Or possibly that all of her forms would be part kitty. Although come to think of it he's already done at least some testing on Will and Gill before this so he shouldn't have been that worried about it's effects on shapeshifters. Of course, the background of the TFG hasn't been established yet so their involvement and Tedd's reason for having the gun in the first place probably weren't thought of yet.

Well whatever was going on in Tedd's mind, Grace was definitely a bad kitty for performing a dangerous experiment like that. The question then is what's the best way to punish a naughty cat-girl, spray her with water or give her a spanking :wink:

When training cats, punishment doesn’t work well since they don’t have the socialization instincts that keep them coming back even after being punished. Instead, you interrupt the training so they cannot earn a reward. (You are remembering to reward them with something a cat likes, aren’t you?)

In this case the reward is Tedd; so he needs to step out of the room for fifteen or twenty minutes whenever Grace does something unnecessarily dangerous. When she does remember her safety precautions, make sure she gets plenty of Tedd to encourage her.

Chronos: Guess she was really impatient to be a catgirl.

It appear that one can be in direct contact with someone who is being transformed without also changing or other ill effects. This makes me wonder, what exactly is the range of the TFG? Fire it randomly in the air and sooner or later it will cross paths with an alien in a galaxy far far away (provided it hits no debris)? Can it only do one transformation at a time? These questions also apply to Ellen's beam.

Prediction: In the future, Tedd will perfect a multi-targeting system for group effects.

Somewhere, it was thought that there are two beams: a reading beam to scan the target, and an actual TF beam to do the actual work. If this is true, firing randomly far away has no effect because the reading beam is not reflected back to the gun/hand in time unless it stands perfectly still (impossible in this dynamic universe). Add gravity distortion and even a direct beam is likely to lose its potency before it hits.

I actually liked this bit of characterization: it shows that--while he may be a mad scientist--he has enough knowledge of sound experimental procedure to not just rush into anything when he doesn't know what might happen. Think of it like not wanting to just start mixing unknown chemicals haphazardly.

That, and at this point Tedd has no idea that Grace's ability is even remotely similar to uryuom shape-shifting.

We actually don't know what Tedd knew at this point. He certainly didn't know everything, but if only because he speaks Uryuom, he has to know the meaning of the word "Seyunolu", for instance.

(Yes, knowing the language would force him to know a great deal of alien history and science. Don't think about it!)
