I'm about halfway through The Road to Mars by Eric Idle. Yep, that Eric Idle. It has kind of that Hitchhiker's Guide or Discworld vibe, as you might expect. In the part I just read, the narrator is talking about comedy from the 20th century and mentions a stupid show named Monty Python that doesn't make any sense. :lol:

If he's the guy I remember from TrekBBS we got into an argument over competing alien world shows.
Yeah, I know him too. He's at Exile abd once when I was at comic-con I noticed a book of his for sale, as I. paged through I noticed he had named a bad guys ship teh Rhea abd tgat is the name of the Exisler we was alowys picking on so I told her about it and we hqd. good laugh

Yeah he knows how to be clueless.
But the part about Picard being ruthlessly prosecuted by an old flame is surprisingly derivative-- they did that in TOS in the episode "Court Martial."
Well he didn't have a choice since it was established in TNG that Picard was court-martialed for the loss of the Stargazer.
I just finished Janet Evanovich;s latst, her 25th in her Stephaine PLUM series. She;s still got it. It is funny and I gotta get on her facebook page and let her know I am okay. My mother was so impressed to hear tgat Janet cn walk into a room of 600 fans abd recognize n=me fom berhind. I got so tired of the Joe Morelli or Ranger fight< i named myself Nonny, Queen of the Ranger Babes abd was tunned when they accepted that. The Ranger Babes always were okay, but the Morelli crowd kept telling Janet to kill off Ranger and get Steph married to Moerlli, but luckily Janet knwe that the series would go on forever with the current lelvel of sexual tension.

I'm glad you are enjouying it, so much aas I did. Wow, Eric Idle writes scifi! I have a ticket to see Spamalot in March. Gotta find my DVD of the Life of Brian and watch as it is based o.n this movie. Like many other fans I have choseen "Always Look on the Bright Side of Life" as my funeral song

If you get that message, it means that you've already posted and you just clicked on the submit button too many times.
