Huh. That's pretty cool actually. The old school radio drama kind of format works surprisingly well for Star Trek. Since you've already seen so much Star Trek, you find yourself almost being able...

I actually don't mind paying a subscription fee for an MMO if it's really fun. They have major infrastructure costs, most MMO companies spend a ton of money on content expansions and stuff on an...

To my knowledge, I think they only use money when dealing with non-federation cultures like the ferengi or random species that, at least as far as we know, are from non-federation worlds.

Yeah, no doubt. Agreed. But that doesn't mean that egalitarian societies are neccesarily communist though. In practice communism has often turned out to be less egalitarian than other systems in...

I'd probably go with Tuvok... But I'm partial to Vulcans.
