While my alter ego is a super-powerful molecule, I am a few other things IRL
- I'm a Trekkie, obviously (friends got me into VOY, then DS9, and it just went on from there)
- Favorite show remains DS9, though I enjoy certain aspects of each one
- Technologist and writer by trade, and Star Trek is an inspiration for both
- Seeking to connect with like-minded Trek fans who continue to find great meaning in its message
Star Trek: Picard speculation, being a gift horse
Hahaha. I'm not the only one who wants to see Q back!
This article lists some great Trek characters who would be fun to see in Star Trek: Picard. I'm now pulling for @guinan to make an appearance, too. Sela could be an intriguing addition with the Romulans rumored to have a strong presence in this show...
TNG and Disco link
Re-watching TNG “The Emissary” because I’m kind of a sucker for the Worf-K’Ehleyr love affair. I forgot the Klingon War is referenced in this episode. It’s a little different hearing K’Ehleyr talk about how Klingons were so hostile to humans back then now that I’ve actually seen it on Disco. Pretty neat to have the tie-in.

Ok everyone, my people, my tribe...we're going to talk about this Great Day. Not right now, but soon. I'm sure you've watched The Trailer. whew.
I also just watch this interview with Stewart and some of the cast of #Picard. If you don't want spoilers don't watch it, but there is a lot more information there on who's in it, what kind of stories will be in it.
We'll talk soon.

@Omega_Molecule The doors are jaw-droppingly gorgeous, by the way.
This is the best news I've heard all week. https://arstechnica.com/science/2019/06/behind-the-scenes-at-nasas-newly-restored-historic-apollo-mission-control/
Apparently NASA has spotted the Starfleet insignia on the surface of Mars. This is awesome! https://www.cbsnews.com/news/star-trek-on-mars-starfleet-logo-spotted-by-mars-surface-reconnaissance-orbiter-camera/
Happened to have TNG “Yesterday’s Enterprise” on in the background as I was doing some journal writing tonight and that storyline with the Federation losing the war with the Klingons in a matter of months sounds a bit similar to what’s going on at the end of Season 1 of Discovery. It doesn’t matter how many times I’ve seen this episode—it’s still a favorite.
Now they've released a mini trailer for Star Trek: Picard. So excited! https://slate.com/culture/2019/05/star-trek-picard-cbs-all-access-trailer-vineyard.html
Watched the PBS Breakthroughs episode on the history of the rocket tonight. It was narrated by none other than Patrick Stewart and truly fascinating. At the end they talk about moving away from chemical rockets to plasma and how it’ll open up travel within the solar system. Beginning to sound a little more like Star Trek now. 🚀 https://www.pbs.org/show/breakthrough-ideas-changed-world/
Ok, now I'm *really* emotional. Our first picture of Picard in 17 years. Wow. This is really happening! https://arstechnica.com/gaming/2019/05/cbs-shows-the-first-new-image-of-patrick-stewart-as-picard-in-17-years/
Just a molecule hanging around the galaxy. Also considered the most powerful substance known to exist or, as the Borg call me, perfection. Howdy.
