Major Spoilers Question Of The Day: Deepest Reaches Of Space Edition


Though I’ve a lot of favorite stories that take place in space, most of them (especially ‘The Black Hole’) aren’t the kind of places you’d really want to visit.  Any world where Norman Bates ends up as a respected member of the scientific community is not the kind of world I’m comfortable living in.  The same goes for Battlestar Galactica; no matter how beautiful the women or how awesome the Vipers are, I’d really hate the whole ‘on the run from cyborg overlords who want to kill everything human’ aspect of the world.  (I haven’t seen the rebooted B.G., so I dunno if that part is consistent over incarnations.)  All in all, I think I’d most enjoy life on Deep Space Nine, mostly likely in a capacity similar to that of ladies’ man (or whatever’s whatever) Morn, one of the most amusing characters in all of Star Trek.  This does, however, lead us to today’s query…
