Great stuff. I forwarded this to my friends, they are star trek geeks.

When I first heard about him rocketing his ashes into space, I thought it was a joke. It's like something from the Twilight Zone. Kinda cool though.

Damn

cube said...

s.j. & mexican: Glad you liked it.

beckeye: Actually it's been done for years now. Roddenberry's ashes were sent up with those of Timothy Leary's, the Guru of LSD -- not LDS ;-) In the old days they were allowed to orbit until the orbit decayed.

Frankly I thought that was way cooler, but they have realized how dangerous a lipstick-sized projectile could be to the shuttle & the space station. Now your ashes go up in a rocket & then come back to earth.

Doohan would like this, I think.

OT, how come the two geeky guys from that comic are plain, but the chic is hawt? :S

brooke: Cause it's drawn by a guy.

It's like I tell my daughters, you don't like the way women are portrayed in the media, then get out there & do it better. It won't change until you change it.

They're learning to see and think for themselves.
