I'm not sure we will see Klingons at all in this series, it seems heavily set around Romulan interaction (not bad thing, I always felt they were underutilised).

IMO Hydrogen fuel cars as above are the game changer, all these "clean" battery powered cars seem a scam encouraging more planned obsolescence with the "clean" batteries inevitably going crap.

Lithium ion batteries can and are recycled. There should be better options available in a few years anyway at the speed research is going into new electrical storage technology.

There is also the combination pack option of batteries plus a super capacitor pack, the batteries holding the main charge and the super capacitors acting as a buffer. That will mean less drain on the batteries during acceleration and the energy from decelerating can be stored.

Admittedly you also have the problem of environmental concerns when it is mined. It takes a lot of water for production and the results can pollute the environment.

I would not mind a R1T :)   https://rivian.com/r1t/   (one need to keep scrolling down on the page)

Photo from that page: So do they supply the dog to drive you home when you drink too much or train train yours and give it a Driver's license?

I find it quite amusing that you are considering it fast-paced, Serious, most online complaints seem to be that its too slow setting up the plot (binge watch generation, tbh, buck 'em).

I'm really enjoying it. Interesting theories circulating about as well, for anyone remotely into sci-fi this has to be one of the most talked about shows in ages.


I think I defiantly like the fact that Star Fleet is in a state where it looks Rosey on the outside but clearly is not.
I wonder when we will see klingon's around as well.


And I just wonder the state of the alpha quadrant as a whole now they are off Earth and we get to find out. They mention some form of big incident that Picard saved the federation from in between Romulus blowing up and the last movie so he saves everyone again there. With that, the Dominan war and Borg attach (again) it must be in a bit of a state.

Not just me, quite a few of the youtube reviews I have seen mention this, especially in the first episode.

Then I do have fibromyalgia.

You can probably tell, I haven't gotten around to this yet but it's not been forgotten.

Maybe we should call this BionicForums with the amount of metal in you guys.

they're taking the metal back out of me!

I don't really care... but at least on a date when they noticed the suicide looking scars on my wrists I could say I've got metal plates on both wrists....
now I have to say I had metal plates in my wrists but they took them out again....  you can tell by the looks on their faces they think it's bs and I've been slashing my wrists :-s

I helped my previous employer ace a pen test organised by Google to facilitate us continuing to have Google (Gmail) API access via their OAuth - we got it rubber stamped just before I left - in fact, two pen tests actually as we had one the year prior. It's an interesting avenue, I personally prefer being on this side of the fence and working on securing platforms than trying to find the exploits. Most of these so called expert companies just seem to run a few pieces of software to fire the same kind of requests against your network. Not that I'm suggesting all are like that but it seems to be one of those areas still overly lucrative at that level. I have no idea what any of the acronyms you mentioned mean so I'd imagine you are doing far more advanced stuff.
