Re: Star Trek: Picard (aka ST:P)

And at least the show is moving in the right direction, moving forward instead of wallowing in prequels and re-tellings.

Re: Check-in Thread #97: Berkelium Kurt

^Understandable though. It's still pretty fresh in their history. Are their definitions of heroes different? Actually, I think they see heroism as a social construction, as historically and culturally bound. Which is another way of saying heroism is in the eye of the beholder. :lol: I tend to agree....

Re: Star Trek: Picard (aka ST:P)

A teaser for Picard is out now. Abramsverse aspects aside it does look mildly promising.

Somebody from HR wants to talk to me tomorrow. I don't want to count my chickens, but if they weren't going to offer me the job they'd probably just say so. Knock on wood.
Fingers crossed.

Re: Author's Check-in #11

Direct2Digital does look promising, though I'll have to look into it more to be sure- as it does sound almost a little too good to be true.

Meanwhile I put in some work on a novella currently titled Severance Pay.

We've been getting an unusual amount of rain lately- at least for this time of year. Been a lot cooler than usual too.
