    the lone Star Trek fan shuffles uncomfortably in a corner
    Post- or pre-reboot? 'Cause TNG is where it's at.
    Aaand sold.


    Be it through hallowed grounds or lands of sorrow
    The Forger's wake is bereft and fallow

    Is the residuum worth the cost of destruction and maiming;
    Or is the shaping a culling and exercise in taming?

    The road's goal is the Origin of Being
    But be wary through what thickets it winds.

    Oh, pre-, most definitely. I'm not even sure that the modern world can even create another Trek. Something about modern day is just too....I don't know, it's just too fanciful to create the spirit of a real Trek.

    I like Star Trek more than Star Wars. Not sure if I could be called a fan.

    I gotta say though. I'm surprised you don't like Star Wars more, Nissa. I guess you're just full of surprises.

    *imperious voice*: I will allow it.

    We talkin' TV show or the books? TV shows still pretty good.

    I would just like to point out that, I, too, prefer Star Trek to Star Wars. Because I'm a naive hippy idealist who embraces socialism and diversity.

    There ain't much of a choice since "post-reboot" Trek only consists of like what, a couple films, right? And one of them was just a rip-off of a pre-reboot movie as well.
    Yes, that's right! That is indeed ME on the right.

    Diversity is a libertarian ideology. Socialists only like to be diverse when it conforms.


    Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaand, WE'RE OFF!!!

    No wait, we're not. Relax everyone it ends here. Just did this as a joke from boredom.

    You damn, dirty ape!

    I went through a Golden Age SciFi phase a few years back, gobbling up EVERYTHING I could find by Heinlein, Asimov, and Clarke. Poul Anderson, Larry Niven, and Vernor Vinge were also very sexy. And Pandora's Star? Not quite HARD scifi, but damn was that a good read.


    Also, I shall leave this here for your perusing pleasure: ALIEN MEGASTRUCTURE. Dun, dun, DUUUUN!

    Pandora's Star was a good read, indeed. On top of the science fiction concepts and, in my opinion, hive mind alien race done right, I really enjoyed the brief interludes about the economic and political organization of the planets. I like Peter F. Hamilton's ramblings. Most epic tomes ramble about nonsense but Peter keeps it interesting. That's why I enjoy his cyberpunk novels a bit more than the more well respected novels of the genre.

    Oh yeah, something about Star Wars ... and Trekker socialism.



    Rest In Peace, Old Friend.
