I believe are in order. My name is Tom, my pronouns are he/him/his. I've been a Linux person since the late 90s. I've been a Sci-Fi reader since I could choose my own books. I've been a Sci-Fi watcher for even longer. I'm married and we have two kids. I'm in the US (North Carolina), I'm a liberal and I talk politics under a CW. Given the instance, I should mention my family watched TNG growing up and I really liked catching TAS when it was on.

I am nothing but a disembodied head, floating in the Great River of Profit, helpless as a leaf tossed by the ebb and flow of capital. I release myself. I let go. I am free, free to win, free to lose. The Market will Guide me to my Reward.

Risa has fantastic tortellini. Took some cooking classes too, learned to make Gagcht with pesto sauce.

Back from vacation on Risa for a week, I hope the bar is in good shape.

It was especially nice to look through these 1950s scifi stories after rewatching DS9 Far Beyond The Stars last night with @clinkingdog What an episode! ❤🚀🤖👽

TIL that Wolf 359 is an actual star. I guess I shouldn’t be surprised that they make references to real astronomical bodies in Star Trek, but I’d never really thought about it before.

its a very interesting read, I didn't think of the Romulans' characterization in this way 🤔

The Romulans see themselves in humanity, but also their greatest fear come true. Their ethos is better explained by historic trauma than a desire to conquer. (self.DaystromInstitute) by /u/Ut_prosim
